Ratings :

9 man SNGs

Pro : DuderinoAB Notes :

The 9 man SNG section is headed by Adam “DuderinoAB” Baird and he does a very good job at it. His videos are very clear and the production on them is great. They range from hand history reviews, to live play on 4 tables so both point of views are covered, including hindsight and live at the moment decision making. The stakes range from small $6.50 games up to mid stake $60 games being the highest at the moment. Not sure if there are any plans for higher stakes such as the $100+ games.Adam does a very fine job of getting into his decision making through processors and clearly conveys that to the students. He discusses hand ranges, pot odds, & other such criteria involved in his decisions.

Ratings :

6 max Sit and Go’s

Pro : Notes :

Joe “z06fanatic” Rohinsky is at the helm in the 6 Man SNG category. His video’s are also divided between hand history reviews and actual play as well. The buy in’s for the 6 max vids are also a bit more varied in that they range from $22 buy in’s on up to $200 games. For those new to 6 man SNG’s he has a a video that covers the main differences between 6 man & 9 or 10 man SNG’s thus allowing players to perhaps venture into these if they spot a weak field or weak players at a table. He is a very able teacher & player & members get to see that in the different videos available.

Ratings :

Heads UP Sit and Go’s

Pro : Notes :

Bryan “PrimordialAA” Pellegrino presents the Heads Up category videos in a variety of ways. His videos start with a series titled “HU SNG from Scratch”. This series spans several smaller subsections broken down into everything from beginner, to intermediate up to advanced concepts. The buyins range the most of any other instructor, from $33′s up to $500′s. The power point presentation video series is very well presented as are all the other SNG Academy video’s very nicely produced. Other topics covered are how to multi table for those still stuck in the one game at a time mode.

Ratings :

Multi Table Tournaments (MTT)

Pro : Notes :

The MTT section features 2 video’s by DuderinoAB & the rest by Nike “Shen888″ Shen. At the moment all video’s are hand history reviews. Perhaps in the future they can include a full tournament from start to end along with commentary. One of the strong features is that Shen has put out a MTT SNG 101 course that at the moment consists of a total of 10 video’s. They cover everything in a very good power point presentation format. Everything from ICM, pot odds, equity, EV, early play, middle play, final table play, the Harrington M, & just about everything a person needs for serious SNG play is covered. These video’s are recommended for any SNG player regardless of whether they are playing MTT or single table SNG’s. This could potentially be the strongest video series in the SNG Academy library at the present time.

Weaknesses

Most if not all the weaknesses on this site are attributed simply to the smaller content library. They have consistently been putting out at LEAST one video per day so this should not be a problem in a few weeks if they stay the course with their consistency. They also only cater to No Limit Holdem at the moment as do most SNG only sites. The site itself can be a little difficult to maneuver around but once a person is familiar with the site it should not be a problem. Recently they have added downloadable videos but all the previous videos remain as a streaming option only. All future videos should be downloadable though. Also payment options are currently only limited to paypal.

Strengths

The strengths of the site are varied. For one the production on all the video’s whether they are power point presentation series, hand history reviews or actual live play is very high. The quality in all of them is crisp & clear with no problems from bad audio or video.The instructors seem to have divided up responsibility very well between and have chosen not only good players but able teachers as well for each category. The output of video’s once again is another one of their strengths. Overall a very well put together & a great addition for the SNG community.

Expected Value: Is SitnGo Academy worth it?

SNGAcademy enters a very crowded online poker training market, but luckily they have entered with a niche specialty. With only one other dedicated sit & go training site to compete with, there is still plenty of room for growth. For purely sng enthusiasts, sng academy is a great value. The price is right and at $15 per month if paying for the whole year in advance, it certainly is a bargain. There is great value here for those who want to improve their game and earn more money one hour at a time. There is no reason why you should not join sngacademy if you are a sng player.

The SNG Academy Review : 8.0/10
