One of the most crucial moments in a poker tournament is the heads-up battle at the end. In that spirit, Global Poker has unveiled a new game variant – Heads-Up Sit N’ Gos, or heads-up SnGs.
The update comes due to the fact that Global Poker has been receiving multiple requests for heads-up poker from its player pool. Heads-up poker exists in a sort of limbo for many tournament players.
On the one hand, tournament players often spend the least amount of time practicing their heads-up poker play. Ironically, however, heads-up play can often generate positive expected value with regard to pay jumps at the end of the tournament.
So, Global Poker’s addition of heads-up poker play is a welcome addition. It will allow players to develop an often overlooked part of their game.
How to play Global Poker’s Heads-up SnGs
Heads-up SnGs are the purest form of 1-on-1 battles for poker players. Each player begins with the same amount of chips, and play proceeds like a normal tournament.
Blinds increase every few minutes, and the game continues until one player has all the chips in play. Unsurprisingly, the payouts are for the victors only.
So, Global Poker’s Heads-Up Sit N’ Gos afford players the option to learn how to play mano e mano from the comfort of their living rooms. As a result, players can develop the skills to make that big pay day jump and take down the hardware.
Find these new tournaments by visiting Global Poker’s Sit-n-Go tab. A quick search should display all the available game options.
Players can choose from a wide variety of buy-in options. Heads-up battles with buy-ins as high as SC$53.50 are available.
For those who might still feel a bit nervous, Global Poker is also offering heads-up SnGs for Gold Coins players. This second currency costs nothing, but will allow players to test their games in a safe environment.
Eat a hoagie with me
For the rest of July, I will be testing my own skills in the heads-up arena. Every Wednesday night, I will be streaming heads up battles on Global Poker through my Twitch stream.
Tune in to watch and learn how the site works. Feel free to ask any questions in chat about the site and games.
As a bonus, I will be giving away free $weeps Cash prizes to followers of the channel that are valid for play on Global Poker’s sister site, Chumba Casino.
Or, if you are brazen enough, you can challenge “ EataHoagie “ to an online heads-up match. Of course, I will stream your eventual defeat, too. See you then!
