      hi. It really comes down to luck with such a short BR, when playing SNGs or MTTs. Telling from experience :) .

      I suggest you stay away from super-turbo SNGs and regular Re-buy tourneys, as they are a major money sink without proper BR. Especially in super turbo 3.5$ variance is extremely high and players have gotten much better than say 2 years ago.

      To play in larger tournaments try to qualify through satellites. There is a regular 1 dollar qualifier to LBT for instance (250k GTD) and .5+.1 satellite to 22 buck double duce, those are rather soft imho. You can also do those repeatedly, getting tournament dollars.

      If you are in US time zone try playing the 1 and 4 dollar token frenzy tourneys, as they will give you tokens you could use to enter 26 dollar events.

      There are 4.4 dollar SNGs for a 26 dollar token, 10$ to 2nd place, but those tend to be difficult due to very tight play by everyone and not really worth it, considering that you could win almost as much playing a regular 5 dollar sng.

      Try playing with filters, sort out tournaments with BI between 5-30 bucks and look inside those for cheap qualifiers.

      Also 4-6 tabling FR NL5 SSS can give you some cash, if you follow the strategy. SSS is good for getting FTP points > strategy points > gaining access to Silver & Gold articles.

      you could be a top player but if you can't discipline yourself with the most basic of BRM strategy's you just aint gonna get anywhere.
