Collin Moshman is an online poker legend and leading Sit & Go expert. He graduated from Caltech with an honors degree in theoretical math and adapted his knowledge to the game. At his peak, he beat $200-$500 buy-in Sit & Go tournaments.

He has taught tournament poker skills for over ten years and was the lead PokerStrategy coach for Sit & Go.

Sit n Go Strategy: Expert Advice for Beating One-Table Poker Tournaments is one of several books by Collin Moshman, but not the only one he’s authored.

Colin also wrote:

• Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em

• The Math of Hold'em

• Pro Poker Strategy

• The Superuser (Fiction)

Collin loves Sit & Go tournaments so much that he even married Sit & Go coach Katie Dozier. Obviously, the two have a lot in common. When not teaching, he trains and backs players on his own team. At the moment, he works as a Video Producer for PokerStrategy.com.

Sit & Go tournaments automatically begin when the stated number of participants has reached the table. For example, Heads Up starts when the second player joins, 6-max Sit & Go starts with the sixth person, and Double or Nothing for 10 people starts with the tenth.

In multi-table tournaments (MTTs), the game starts at a fixed time regardless of registrations. In a cash game, participation in hands involves mandatory betting and is not tied to a schedule.

In Double or Nothing, half of the opponents who outlast the rest are winners. They receive the same reward – double the buy-in. Chips do not affect the prize fund distribution. Heads Up is a two-player game with the winner taking the loser's buy-in. Regular 6, 9 or 10-person Sit & Go tournaments are similar to MTTs. Prizes are usually distributed "50\30\20".

Multi-table Sit & Go tournaments (MTSNGs) are between Sit & Go and MTTs. They are closest to tournament poker, only differing in start time. MTSNGs for 45, 90, and 180 people are most popular. Their main advantage is convenience, as the session can start anytime. In MTTs, players are bound by a schedule. The disadvantage of MTSNGs is the limited prize pool compared to regular tournaments.

Sit & Go is not the most popular format now, but any poker room still offers it. The most popular rooms are reviewed and posted on the GipsyTeam website.

Before playing SNGs and working your way through the stakes, you might want to brush up on the main concepts.

Reading a poker book provides basic knowledge, but there are other effective options:

  • Read articles
  • Watch training videos
  • Work in software
  • Work with a trainer
  • Use backing

The GipsyTeam website, launched in 2009, has accumulated a huge knowledge base on all aspects of the game. A complete list of materials is in the Article Catalog.

A personal trainer requires investment. Poker schools or betting funds offer free teaching in exchange for a share of future income. Look for backing on the GipsyTeam forum*. Schools and foundations require experience and understanding of the game for acceptance. The GreenLine Poker fund* is one of the best backing options.

For self-study, working in poker software like Flopzilla is a good choice. The $25 calculator analyzes specific hands and develops range thinking skills (a free trial is also available). Buy it and other useful programs in the GipsyTeam Shop.
