      I wouldn't play them in general.. i guess the variance on those kidn of sngs is quite higher because you cant actually make a standard raise without commiting yourself to the pot

      I wouldn't play them either.. You'd have to be lucky to win one of them I think. Its push/fold all the way n u'd need to pick up good hands pretty quickly or you'd just blind out within a few rounds. I guess its quick money or a quick loss if you wanted to gamble so I don't reccomend it.

      at least 100 buy-ins. i would stay away from these, but from the sounds of it, they can definitely be profitable. good/great ICM is a must, as well as some knowledge of other late game concepts.

      I played on just now to see how I'd do, pushing marginal hands and good ones, I was lucky I picked up KK early vs A5, then Q6s on the BU vs AK I hit a 6 :D

      Then this hand heads up made me laugh

      well I saw some of these super turbo end in 10 minutes, so my hourly winrate should be way higher than playing normal or turbo sit&go's, if I know exactly what I should be doing and have the bankroll

      chenny8888, what other late game concepts are you referring to?

      things like making a -$EV decision to avoid further ones, as well as more advanced concepts like the gigabet dilemma, etc.

      Those tourneys are pure luck...

      Roy Rounder in his books always recommend to think of the relationship of the table chips with the blind's structure...

      This tourney has the worst relationship possible... no matter what hand you play you are pot commited with any two cards, you don't have any margin or error nor any feasible strategy.

      Believe me, I love SnG and I stay out of thos pesky 3,30$ super turbo...
