      50$ to 2400 by plaing lower than 5$ sng... my advice is to play a lot ... minimum of 8 tables at one time .... Make at least 150+sng per day.... roi 10% is superb coz 150x5,5=800$ x 10%ROi = 80$ profit... plus 0,5x150=75$ x rakeback 0,27= 25$

      at end 105$ per one day of playing :)

      by NOT PLAYING by BRM i minded that i have more than 500 BI... if i play with BRM i should alredy played at least 55$ sng

      Grats for your success. I love SNGs too. Atm i am 60% of time ITM. But i have a problem playing as much SNGs as i'd like. I mean playing 160 a day is a dream for me.

      Do you play single table or multitable ones?

      u play the sng's that u start with 300 chips? I think you gotta be pretty lucky to win them, whats ur strategy, eg. what handranges would u call a shove with, or push yourself with. I think the variance is super high playing these.

      I play $3.5+$0.3 super turbo's at fulltilt as well as MiskoKvo, and i can definately tell you that luck does not have anything to do with it. You start with 10BB, so you are in the push/fold mode from the beginning to the end (with some exceptions perhaps - like heads up on 30/60 blinds), so it's all about ICM. On the other hand, variance IS very high indeed, but if you really play according to the ICM, you MUST be profitable (mainly because 90% of the players playing these sng's are fish).

      EDIT.: btw Misko, why don't you use the cascade table layout?? In these sng's i don't really need to know anything about the play of my opponents - just wether they are regular or fish (i use red/green color - you are green for me ;) ). That way you can easily fit any number of windows :P

      just to be clear, green means good player :D i wrote it in wrong order :)
      i started playing in the beginning of september, but i was loosing too much (my BR was $250, i think now that it was too low for these, because if i had hit 1 big downswing i would go broke), so i stopped for a while, but then i started again on 25th and from then on, i had profit $50-$150 every day, playing ~100 a day. If i see too many green players registering (2 or more), i wait until they open their sets and then start registering :)

      Very nice accomplishment miskokvo (and Nyerel as well :) )

      These tournaments sound crazy though - 10 BB starting stack? Its like a constant ICM trainer :D

      How long does one tournament usually last?

      It depends :) The highest blinds i have ever seen were 150/300 (11th lvl on fulltilt), so i guess 33 minues at most. Usually 20-25 minutes are enough to win one. I remember winning one at 40/80 blinds though. :D

      I don't use any special software for this, i just use the built-in "notes" in fulltilt poker, you can assign colors to people there.
