      Hi I'm starting this thread to keep track of my progress in short stack Sng's and to ask question as I go.

      The reason I started to play these was just to improve my short stack play in MTT's and cash out in first 2 so figured it my be possible to profit from These sng's so played an other 1 finished on the bubble with AK play the hand correctly as being Short stacked get in the chips in as fast as possible so pushed all in got called QTs he hit 2 pairs so won the pot, well I've played 9 and cashed out in 6

      Profitable? Yes. More profitable than regular SnG's? Not in my opinion. But it's up to you, if you like playing them then by all means do.

      The good ones are Pokerstars, and FullTilt Poker. Stay away from PartyPoker until you are playing $11+ because the rake at the lower level is so high..

      Fulltilt is the best option because you get rakeback
