Sit-n-Go Phases

In order to present our system in a very simple and easy to follow way, we have come up with the concept of Sit-n-Go Phases. Our style of play changes multiple times throughout a Sit-n-Go and we must have ways of describing these inflection points so that you can properly switch gears.

The following diagram shows the 3 basic Phases of our No Limit Sit-n-Go System:

As the tournament progresses, you jump through different stages within each phase. You are given exact details on how to play for each stage, along with which plays from our playbook you can use and exactly when to use them.
