      Does the SnG strategy work effectively on Turbo tables?

      It seemed to be working okay last month - had a ROI of 22% over 200 tournaments but this month, in less than two weeks, I am $250 down. My ROI is something like -50%. Seems that at the push and fold stage I just keep getting out drawn all the time - lots and lots of 4th place finishes. Very annoying.

      But these are turbo tables and we seem to get to push or fold very quickly (hence the name turbo I guess) so I just wondered if they were in fact profitable tables?

      SNG strategy works best on turbo tables. but also, variance is very high on these tables, so expect extreme downswings.

      most if not all of the judges, coaches, for SNG play turbo or speed tables.

      Playing $11 on Titan - In April I played about 150 and had a roi of 22% (profit of $270) - In May, so far, I am down about the same so, in all, I am probably breaking even maybe up just a bit. So probably not that desperate just hitting a downswing after a good upswing makes it seem much worse.

      Getting quite fed up of SnG's at the moment seems I get called in push-or-fold stage with bulls#@t hands and nearly always lose (particularly on the river) to 1 card flushes or random two pairs. Gonna post some hands later to see if I was making the right moves in the first place.

      I find Titan turbos swingier than turbos elsewhere, stars for example. The blinds are only 1 min less but the hands per hour for Titan generally is much less so you don't get to play as many hands. That said, the players are awful and you should always be happy to get ur chips (in*) with any edge.

      What's your name spidey? I'm playing the 11s too.

      I play as Spidey1978 - same as here on the forum.

      Won't be playing online today though as tonight I am playing my first live poker tournament. Wish me luck. I'll let you know how it goes.
