      I was wondering if anyone plays these and what they make of them?

      I just discovered them today and I got a good first impression, playing 4 tables makes it good for getting reads on people and also means using a HUD you can quickly identify peoples style.

      Any thoughts would be appreciated.

      Hi peche025,

      I play them occasionally and have been for a while, it's similar to playing 4x standard sng tables ofc which I do anyway.

      The main difference is that you need to be a bit more pro-active in knocking out people to get a share of the 5th prize pool.

      I tend to still play tight in the early stages, survival is everything and you will earn points towards that 5th prize pool for every player that busts, but in the middle and latter stages you will need to take the fight to others.

      Similar to regular sng's, if you can get 2 out of the 4 games into the top 3 then you will be doing well and earning good money, however unlike regular sngs's a 3rd, 3rd, 4th, 4th is a lot better than a 3rd, 3rd, 8th, 9th so don't go risking everything on a double up too early.

      Hope this helps, best regards,
