    Default Australian SNG Players

    Can someone who habitually attempts to find reasons why really terrible play is justified please explain what this Aussie might be thinking?

    I'm irritated when I get out of bed and this is the first hand I play.

    pingz11 oh wow Thret is on the table. I have to beat this guy then i can post it on Pokernetwork and rub it in all over his face and he will never show his face to the poker world ever again.

    He is also small blind first, i should make a play and show him that i rule this level.

    Shit.

    Its the first hand of the tournament though, if i limp from behind the button i can easily represent hands on later streets. Plus i always get lucky on the river. Remember that time with Stacy and well, lets say hitting it on the river has a different meaning to me.

    If he has hit anything on that board maybe i can scare him off on later streets. I mean 10 J is in my range at the moment. and i have the straight.

    He can't possible have anything on that board. I know he will fire a bet at me if i check though so i can get some money out of him now and then shaft him later.

    Oh sweet now i can represent quads or even a full house. If he has got a set then he can call and we can see where we go from here. I don't want to scare him away though. i will keep it small and then suckerpunch him later.

    He called awesome, and oh yeah i just got my pair on the river. You are going down kid. Told you i always get my pair. Oh yeah, got to keep the bet small so that he reraises me and then we can get all the chips, then i will be chipleader in this sit n go, then my bankroll will jump up to 300. I really don't want to use my last 2.25 for a turbo sit n go, i want to show i can roll with the big boys. I do feel like a cheeseburger though.

    perhaps it was one of them "bluffs" that the pros do?

    also, should we talk about completing SB with K8o?

    Obviously I should definately fold but I felt like gambling with 0.67% of my stack getting 5-1 pre. It's a leak I have.

    For educational sake can we discuss completing the small blind with K,rag? As this is something I would normally do in a limped pot hoping to flop trip's or an ultra stealthy full house.
