When playing sit-n-go, you must always keep in mind that you are there to win. You must aim for first place all the time. Keep in mind that first place earns 2 to 3 times than third place. If you want to finish in first place, you must place smart yet aggressive at the same time. In the early stage, you must play tight. IF you have the chip lead, you can boss people around and force them out of the game.
