Ignition Casino $7 NLHE Jackpot Sit & Go
This the Ignition version of the three-person winner-takes-all Sit & Go with a variable payout. 2x the buyin for most of the games, 5x for about 25% of the games, with payouts much higher for a very few games. Never got more than the 5x payout on anything, but I’ve been profitable in them. Cashed 50/114, which wouldn’t be enough to profit if they were all just 2x payouts but about 16% ROI.
Structures are very fast and some of the players are decent—I was in one the other day where none of us hit the wall before we were all down to 5bb—but most of the players still limp into every hand long past the point where they should just be shoving.
I was heads-up this morning on hand 8 in a $35 payout after losing some chips in the first couple hands (starting stack 500, down to 330) and the other player had just swallowed up the third player. (he had 1170, with blinds at 20/40.
J♥4♣ He called, flop was Q♠5♣T♦ and I folded to his bet on the turn.
3♥8♥ Folded my small blind.
2♥4♥. Folded to his bet on A♠7♦T♣ flop.
3♥A♦ Shoved after he limped in. He folded.
3♦Q♠ This hand got checked down to the river with a 9♠5♣4♠T♠A♦ board. He had 3♥Q♣. I’m still down at 270 against his 1230.
J♠2♠ I fold small blind.
2♥5♦. Really, any hand without a deuce or trey in it would be nice. He limps, flop is 7♠3♥J♥ and I fold to a bet. 210 left.
4♦2♣ Uhhh, guys? Fold small blind.
J♠2♠ This looks familiar. He calls, the board gets checked down K♦A♥7♣4♣Q♥ and at showdown he has 3♣6♠, so jack-high takes the cake. A win!
9♠9♣ I shove on the first hand of 30/60 and he calls with 7♦A♦. Board runs out clean and I double to 460.
Q♣T♠ He limps, I shove, and he folds.
2♦K♥ Shove. Up to 580.
8♣J♦ He limps, I check and we check through the flop to a board of 3♦8♠A♥5♣. I bet my second pair for 180 and he folds.
4♥Q♠ I fold my small blind. This is the 21st hand of the tournament.
6♣T♠ He calls and I check. 6♦2♦9♣ flop and I check-call his bet of 60. Q♠ turn and I check-fold to another min-bet. Down to 490.
6♠J♥ Fold the small blind.
K♦7♠ He folds.
8♠7♥ I fold.
9♥A♥ He folds.
2♠6♥ Not back to this, please. Fold.
9♣2♠ He limps in and the flop is 4♦3♦2♥. I do have a pair, so I jam the last 400 in, he calls with J♣A♠ and the board is safe for me. I hate to double on that hand, but there you go. I’m in the lead with 920.
4♠6♣ Blinds to 40/80. I fold my small blind.
8♠8♣ I shove, he calls all in with 6♣5♣ and the board runs out 4♠T♣K♣9♥Q♣. back down to 260 aka 3.25bb.
Q♠T♥ He limps, I shove and he calls with 2♥3♠. I double to 440.
A♥A♠ I still only have 4.5bb. I shove, and he calls with A♣5♣. Reasonable, and this time the spade flush runs out for me. Up to 880.
Q♠A♠ He limps, I shove. He calls with 5♦Q♦. I’m 70% to win the pot and the game, but the board runs out 8♥6♠2♥2♠6♥. I make two pair with an ace, but he has the crucial eight for the better two pair. Down to 260.
6♥8♦ I shove, he calls with 5♣Q♠, and I spike an eight on the river to double to 520.
4♥A♦ Old pattern. He limps, I shove, he calls wih K♦5♦ (59%/41%) and the board is T♠4♠6♠3♠ no don’t do it! 2♣. Couldn’t even give me a spade on the river to make the flush instead of the straight.
