Really good video - Definitely worth spreading the review over the 3 episodes, good discussion and well explained.
Being very new to SnG's one thing you referenced "NASH" i had to google as i had never heard of it before. I have started playing the $2.50's to practice my game, do i need to develop a better understanding of NASH at this level or is that train of thought only really applicable to the $15's + $35's??
Either way have you got any links to any good articles you have read on the subject which you feel are worthy of reading or is this something you could give some time to discussing in future video's - If my opponents are fully versed then i certainly don't want to be at a disadvantage when playing.
Just finished 2nd in only my 15th attempt in taking one down - So close AQ all in against K10 for the win but it wasn't to be.
One hand on the final table which cropped up where i wasn't sure to play or fold:

Hero (BB): t91411 M = 9.62
CO: t98771 M = 10.40
BTN: t58678 M = 6.18
SB: t21140 M = 2.23
Pre Flop: (t9500) Hero is BB with 4 4
1 fold, BTN raises to t58178 all in, 1 fold
Final Pot: t14500
With ICM considerations should i have raised all in or with the short stack folded - Villian was a random, playing fairly standard on FT but no specific reads???
Hey thanks for the feedback hackett, appreciate it.
Nash definitely applies to all buy in levels and basically almost all forms of poker. It's not that important to understand it for 180s though, but it's good to know I guess!, sorry I am overseas so it's hard to give a full answer but I'll try reply in a few days or if I don't e-mail me at email@example.com to remind me! Don't worry, it's not a hassle at all and I'd be happy to help. This was also why I only just replied now.
And congrats on the 2nd, the 44 is pretty close and depends a lot on the player. Vs. very agro/loose players, it's a very close call but vs. most it's a fold, esp tighter fish etc where I would want at least 66. With a short small blind he might be scared money and shoving quite tight - icm isn't so important since if we call we don't bust, but it's still important in the sense that we can't play chip ev since chips gained are worth significantly less than chips lost. With just the info you gave I'd fold 44 tho.
Romdom, you are right we shouldn't exclude it 100%, but we can discount it significantly. E.g. I think villains probably raise QQ+ over 95% of the time..
Will reply properly RE: nash asap, please let me know if you have ANY questions at all in the mean time. GL all!
Hi, I'd love to see like 1 episode containing a svetsession, don't know if I'm the only one but since i'm new to the games I thought that "copying" a succesful player's type of play prob would be good to start out with as something 2 lean back on when developing my own game,
