      Instead of starting a new thread I just thought I'd ask in here.

      I've watched all of the Basic and Bronze SnG videos and have been playing them quite a lot over the past couple of days. I've finished ITM just under half of these times.

      I've got a bankroll that sits around $90 (so just under $10 down since I started yesterday) and I'm currently playing $1 (think this is fine for my current BR) SnGs on Full Tilt.

      I'm just wondering if a loss at the beginning is normal? Is playing SnGs advisable for beginners?

      SNGs are pretty swingy and can be tough for beginners, but with pokerstrategy materials you should be able to easily beat the $1. When I started SNGs recently I was really up and down. I was ITM about 40% of the time. I found that I bubbled out too frequently and was losing a lot of money in the end game. Turning all those 4th place finishes and 3rds into 2nds and wins brought my ITM up to ~55% and ROI from -2% to 18%. I don't have much of a sample size but I think with some review you'll be able to find some of that money.

      Good luck

      As jonnyquest wrote already SNSs are quite swingy. So don't worry to much as long as you try to improve your game.

      - Post difficult hands in our hand evaluation board and our hand judges will have a look at the hand and tell you how to play it:
      Hand Evaluations SNG up to $5

      - Have you downloaded already our ICM trainer? It will help you to master the ICM model:

      Good luck on the tables,

      Thanks a lot guys.

      ICM is definitely something I need to get to grips with, I always seem to crash out at the bubble which is majorly frustrating.
