      SH is the nuts.. just get ready for some swings - they will be deep and often. Also there are more fish at certain times.. when I'm playing SH it seems to be mostly LAGs and maniacs. Once the europeans come online things change a lot!

      Sh you get to play more hands so it's somewhat harder than 982938479tabling FR and basically waiting for the nuts, but sure SH is more profitable in terms of winrates because you get to play with fish more often.

      I just chased a fish to a sh table, after taking about 80bb from him at FR. Three hands in, I flop a straight and he flops two pair, and the river fills his boat. Needless to say, I'm still at the same table, dodging the europeans and trying to get into flops with this guy.

      It's going well. He gets KK and felts a shark, who leaves the table, and then I win back my losses in little chunks. A flush here, an AK there...

      SH is wacky! I think it's great for practising aggression, smart LAG play, and light 3-betting, but FR is the Cadillac (and no, SH is not the Ferrari, it's more like the Miata).

      IMO, the lesser players = better car.

      Heads up would be the cadillac

      ps I love chasing fish, but other TAGS do so too since I always find them at the same table with the fish haha

      I played a decent amount of NL SH on iPoker and there are a lot of regulars. I mean A LOT! And it was NL4. There are regulars who play a lot of the SH tables in the same time. Find 2 of them online and your chances of finding a fish are cut in half. Am i crazy?
      (played maybe 150 5$ sng's and found 3 players profitable: one with 16%roi, one with 7% and one with 3%. that's all; let me think what i prefer... :D )

      Yer I see many regulars around but it doesn't bother me, I either try and beat them or swallow my ego and go find another table!

      As for sng, 16% is good but think about it; 2 hours of game to win (0.16*5)= 80c!
      Lets say $1 for ease, now you could multitable 8 at best (I never understand how people can concentrate multitabling sng with blinds going up and checking when the bubble is etc)

      So: thats $8 in 2 hours!

      Plus I hate the shove/fold stage especially when noobs don't want to fold lol. I wouldn't be able to stand losing so many sng in a arow.

      I like mtt occasionaly though!
