      I guess the only options for you are either to grind it out on the turbos (it might actually help your ICM game since you will be forced to perfect it if you want to make a decent profit there) or switch to other game type..

      You can play whatever games you want even if you did the SNG quiz you just need to read up and at least watch a few videos before you switch.
      Party just sicks like this. They don't have any decent SNGs until the 6$ ones but these still have double rake compared to the same lvl at Stars or Full Tilt. You can make a very nice profit from these with some basic ICM knowledge.

      So your options are either grind the 1$ turbos while learning the ICM or switching to other game type. The first option means you will be ready to make decent money once you get to low stakes from the microstakes. If you choose to switch you won't have to grind the microlimit crapshoots for a few months before moving up to at least the 6$ SNGs..

      I also had the same problem, but thoes $1 are not that bad. I got my BR to $120 with them, then I got a bonus and started the $3 turbos, got my BR to about $400, then came the downswing and the fact that I was always all in. Sometimes the flips dont go your way.

      Now I play cash, but I would like to play the $11 sits. They have decent rake and good blind timing.
