      @Gunstar - yeah dude, I cashout a lot, actually I'm living off of poker since I'm studying abroad.

      @trisminkim - I pretty much play 9man sng's exclusively. And before you ask, yes, I'm using VERY conservative BRM :)

      I think he plays the $50 and $100 SnGs.

      30% ROI @ $50 = NICE!!! :D

      Beautiful graph aurs, beautiful

      Cheers for nice replies friends!

      Yeah, I'm now playing 50s and 100s when I get enough action. Started off 100$ sngs with a 30% roi but now it might have even dropped below zero. Running in god mode in 50$ sngs and in utter slave mode in 100$, wish it were reversed but whatever :)

      Kinda noticed over the last 120 days in your play you have moved from the Turbos to only Regular do you find that they are easier to play (or was it the lack of Turbos @ $55+?) ? Do you make more chips because you dont end up in Push/Fold mode so quickly... or something? (i've only ever played turbos just curious about this)

      less variance cause of less push or fold :) .

      very nice graph btw :) !

      @PidKoker - at first, I started with regular sngs and moved up to 10$ limits with unsuccessful attempts to beat 20$ limits. Then I 'discovered' turbos, and they were dope! But even though I learned ICM very well and saw huge mistakes in others' games, I couldn't reach a higher than 10% roi which didn't feel right as I saw myself better than that. At least I started beating 20$. However, there's one thing with turbos. Your mistakes and leaks are magnified. I had to learn a very tight game which isn't kind of my specialty because of my maniac nature :) So, turbos kind of helped me to polish my game, but there's probably something wrong with Tilt's turbo sng structure because it doesn't seem to allow anough play to beat the games at a high roi. And then by accident I tried a few regular games because there wasn't enough action for solely turbos and that's when my earnings skyrocketed. I moved from 20$ to 100$ limits in a month ;) in short, luck is a much lesser factor in regular sngs as you can get a beat or two and still be abe to pick your spots and play patiently.

      hi there... i dont get it. i like sngs and i think in general i am good.

      but on the low limit sngs (i only play 2$ atm, cause of my roll) are so many donkeys. so i end up having a negative roi even though i think i`m a solid player. do you have any advice?

      Yes friend, I have an advice :) be glad you're playing against donkeys because it sure is harder to play against other grinders. And be glad everytime you get sucked out on when a fish calls with no pair and no draw and wins. Because this is where your money comes from. Actually, in low limits, you can actually pretty much fold your way into the money. It happened to me a few times even on 10$ games, at one point I had an awful connection and there were a few times I got disconnected playing multiple tables. Surely, I made money by sitting out a few times :)

      you are right on this one. i have a very tight image on the table, almost get to the bubble every time, unless my 3-4% raising range gets busted :D i mean how often does it happen on fulltilt. =) I think i adapted quite good to play tight until i get to the push or fold phase.

      it`s something i know from my cashgames, where i won 60% of my AA hands, this sucks :P

      Quoted for Truth!!! Especially the last sentence. Just think of the suckouts as investments into the fish that will later be paid back with a nice interest.
