      When you are starting up I recommend the smaller tournaments so probably the 180 man's 90man's and 45 man's. They are multi-table SNG's but they are really just tournaments with a set amount of people in them.

      Playing the ones I recommend gives you a feeling for the tournament games with less variance than the tournaments with 1k till 4k people in it.

      Yeah i agree. It also gives you more confidence when getting to the final stages of the smaller tournaments. Less time consuming too.

      i tried a few, pretty cool actually, but i see they are not exactly for me. there are few places paid, i rather play an 1k + players tournament, yes, i spend a few hours, but it's much more easier to reach a profit.

      i will review my sng strategy and then i will try some more.

      absolutely true... But playing these tournaments whether you play the 180 man or the 1k+ tournaments doesn't change anything profit wise. Since in both tournaments you are playing for the win, not for a double your buy-in finishing position. Wich means playing the 180-man is better if you start up since variance is significantly lower than the 1k+ tournaments.
