      Hey SnG guys!

      I would like to start my SnG challenge, but I need some guidelines. :f_biggrin:
      Goal is to play 1000 2.50+0.25 18man 6max Sit and Go tournments and to do it profitably :s_biggrin:

      1.What kind of BR should i use?

      2. Any good articles, videos?

      I'm in a hurry right now, i'm sure i'll have more questions and i'll post them later...

      Karlozzz :spade:

      I use around 100 for 6-man, so for 18-man I guess 300 BI


      :coolface:

      but seriously, I'd go for like 150-200.

      With 150bi br, i can play 1k games with ROI of -5... I'm hope that my ROI will be positive :)

      And is 1k games enough of a sample to say that i'm a winning player?

      I think ill change to pokerstars, more traffic and they have 1.5 usd 18 man tourneys... I'm sure that PS has better players than microgaming, but ill give it a shot soon.. with recommended 150 bi brm. $150=€113 so it will be much cheaper for me if i'm gonna SUCK :coolface:

      But any good articles, videos or forum threads/blogs?

      anything is good really.. a basic knowledge of everything helps the best... but MTTS, Chenny videos.. all very good.

      Yes, quite of a conversation went around here.

      I agree that 150 BI seems reasonable. It depends a lot on your edge over the field, how fast the blind structure is etc.

      As for articles and videos, I will suggest you to take a look on this one:

      click 1

      click 2.

      You don't have the status yet, but I am pretty sure you will be able to gain gold status in a flash. Especially with the bonus strategy points involved.
      To give you a bit more info, they are played in a way similar to 9-10-player SnG. Of course, there are some adjustments you have to make, but once again- they are very close to one another.
