Lol i am sure thatplaying 16 tables on NL50 generate at least 3 times more rake than playing 8 tables of 10\$ SNGs(if you play normal ones you play them at least 45min. right).

Ok i will do little calculations for you

Rake at 10\$ SNGs is 1\$ so playing lets say 10 is 10\$ rake. Lets say you play one round 1 hour.

Making 10\$ rake playing on 16 tables SSS means if poker provider uses MGR means 100\$ rake all together on all tables so that falls 10\$ on player.

Now lets calculate how many hands per hour playing 16 tables means- i would say at least 900. So in 900hands 10 players have to make 100\$ rake which means all together 2k\$ money in pot right?

Now lets say average pot on NL50 only 5\$(we know is at least 10\$). 5\$*900 is 4500\$ in pots or 225\$ rake or 22,5\$ rake per person.

This was simple calculation put other numbers in and you get right picture.

So as i said playing 16 tables SSS NL50 makes at least 3 times rake playing 8 10\$ SNGs.

SNGs are not for making rake fast never was never will be
