      The easiest and probably best for beginners are 9 man SnG's. You should pick the type you like/enjoy most, and try to become better at them. Don't just play a game you dislike for the money.

      You can make alot of money from any variant, so pick the one which best suits you.

      I think DON's are easiest for total beginners, easy way to get your bankroll growing :)

      So why is this question even necessary? Why are you starting with $50?

      In answer to viewer88's reply, DoN's probably are easier, but your never gonna become a world beater playing such SnG's. The general play in DoN's doesn't relate to any other variants. Your also not going to get a good consistent winrate., and they are far from the most profitable.

      It is necessary because different sites have different skilled games. For example the sng's on party poker are a joke. I am starting with $50 to work my way up, pointless depositing loads when I can work it upquickly.

      I have played a few don, never had the chance on other sites I played and they are just too easy. I have only really lost them when my opponent sucks out. I have been mainly playing $1 27/45 man tournaments and making good profit.

      Cheers for the help everyone

      Generally the STT players on stars are of a better caliber than that of party or elsewhere. Still plenty of bad players though, although expect a huge increase in the amount of players who understand sng theory at the 16s. A lot are still bad imo, they just wait until the late blind stages to reveal themselves.

      Low stakes MTT/MTT SNGS are fishy everywhere.

      Well if it won't make you go completely mental playing 500 $1.10 DON's will get you the 500 FPP's you need to release the bonus and it actually gives you 100% RB while you clear it.

      That's not too hard you know.

      I've easily 26-tabled DoNs and made profit :P .

      You don't get 1 FPP per game... You get 4 or 5 Fpps per 1 dollar in rake so its 10 games to get 1 dollar in rake.

      No, a $1.10 DON gives you 1 FPP, 10 of them give you 10FPP's for $1 rake. if you buy into a $10+1 you only get 5 FPPs, it's a positive glitch in the system for micro players as they round up cause they don't have fractional FPP's.

      2. Earn FPP credits for tournament play

      Five (5) FPP credits are awarded for each $1 in tournament fees paid. Fractional FPPs will be awarded in tenths.

      For example:

      * In a poker tournament with $20 buy-in and $2 tournament fee, each player will be awarded 10 FPP credits.
      * In a $5 buy-in Sit & Go poker tournament with a $0.50 fee, 2.5 FPP credits will be awarded to each player who played in the tournament.
      This is from the pokerstars website - http://www.pokerstars.com/fpp/

      So im not sure about $1.10 DoNs but logically it would only give 0.5 FPP. But im not sure wether this has been implemented yet. But when i play a $5.50 tourney i do get 2.5FPP so it must be. Someone check i out imo ;)

      you're wrong, you get 3FPP when you play a $5 + 0,50 toruney.

      You multiply the rake by 5. Then you get the closest entire number
      example: $1 + 0,25. 0,25 * 5 = 1,25. The closest entire number is 1, so you get 1 fpp
      $1 + 0,10. 0,10 * 5 = 0,50. The closes entire numer is 1.

      Usualy yes, you get 3 FPP for 5.50 tourney. But I noticed that while playing private PS comunity tournament you get 2.5 FPP for 5.50 buy-in.
      Best is to check tournament lobby to find how much FPP you will get

      I'd advice you to play the 3 + 0.25 6-max Sit 'n' Gos.
      They are really easy to beat and it doesn't take much time.
