What Is Sit N Go Poker?
Sit N Go Poker is a variation of Texas Holdem Poker tournaments, where players in a game will wait until a specified number of registrants sit down to play. Typically used in any number of players where there is not a specified start time, rather a specified number of players.The sit and go tournament concept has become more popular, especially to build one's poker account.
Originating in the late 1970's, Sit N Go Poker, was said to have started by the first commissioner of the World Series Of Poker, who asked 10 players to put up $1000 each in order to pay a winner take all for an entry into the WSOP main event. Legend also has it that this was the first satellite tournament onto the WSOP main event.

The allure of a sitngo poker tournament today is that it allows for a quicker opportunity to make a good ROI (Return on Investment) for poker players with limited funds or inexperience in cash games. The concept of sit n go poker has seen a dramatic increase since the onset of online poker. Even small poker sites offer non-stop sit n go poker opportunities.

The strategy used in a sitngo poker tournament is quite different than one used in a cash game or a large multi-table tournament (MTT). Due to the smaller field size, a SNG allows a player to actually play a more solid game. Since the short field brings players closer to the money in less time than a typical tournament, some players will attempt to play too loose, too early.
Typically a Sit N Go Poker table online will have as few as 6 (called short-handed or 6 handed poker) to as many as 180 entrants. While, in live play, the majority of sit n go poker tournaments are restricted to 9 players. This is largely due to interest levels. In many live poker rooms, scheduled tournaments are the norm.
For many poker players, online Sit N Go Poker is their only choice of game. The blind levels are usually anywhere from a turbo of 3 minutes to a regular time of 10 minutes and the fact is that a 9 or 18 player sitngo poker tournament is quickly finished within an hour or so. This allows players an opportunity to play multiple Sit N Go Poker games in one day.
Although, historically, a sit n go poker tournament does not hold the allure of huge prize pools like a scheduled multi-table tournament (MTT), it does have the potential to grow your bankroll if you follow solid poker basic strategy.
