Hello, I can not wait to Full TiltPoker reopen but until then I want you to tell me what to play, cash or SnG? I hope I get the ~ $ 70 back and start doing my bankroll to beat durrrr )) kidding, I want to make ~ $ 1000 before Christmas, so expect tips, not just: Cash / SnG ... but also explain why cash or SnG
can get more volume playing SnG's...I play some cash tables at times and find for myself at least the variance is higher and spend a lot of time folding junk hands. Lately haven't been doing well at either game...on a downswing the last six weeks or so, hoping to break out of it soon. At the cash tables my good hands aren't holding up and at SnG's bubble more often than usual. Even the MTT SnG's 18-45 seaters where I usually cash easier aren't so easy anymore. So there are a variety of games to grow your bankroll...depends mainly on your preference. Good luck on your quest and may the big "V" not rear its ugly head!

To be honest I'd be playing a little or lot, of both. Just play patiently and figure out what your doing well in and decide which way to go or maybe you'll do well in both. Good Luck no matter which way you do decide.
If you are looking to steady grind your bankroll I might have to recommend playing Double Or nothing SNG's. Once you get the icm, and playing style solid, you can load up 10 of these at a time and rake in that hourly rate (with rakeback this becomes very profitable)
but in general I would say cash because this is what I have always cut my chops on. It really comes down to your play style.
I would normally recommend a 5/10 limit for serious grinding and to earn that hourly rate but to meet your goal of 1000$ by christmas wouldn't be an easy goal playing limit. At least not by christmas 2012 that is.

of you follow bankroll management- then i think you can choose whatever you like most, since you have sufficient roll for cash (micro stakes) and sns's it's only up to you to decide. everyone has their own opinion, like/dislike cash over sng's or vice versa. i personally like sng's over cash games only because you do not have to deal with situations where half of your table suddenly disappears and you have to load another table, or dudes start to sit out, and you are left shorthanded....

It is doable. Not sure when FTP will open again but if it was today, you need to make an average profit of $16,91 every day. Some days you'll make more, some days you'll make less, som days you might even lose a few $ but that's OK as long as you keep that average profit a day at about $17.
About the question at hand, I would say cash. It's easier to turn a profit at those tables with a good bankroll management in my opinion. Of course it all comes down to what you would prefer. It's all about what game you feel most comfortable playing.
Good luck with this challenge! Keep us updated on your progress.

I would suggest to just have a look around and play a few games at the reopening. You never know what surpsrises you might get. I wonder if they will be able to (hardware speaking) to handle all that volume that will connect the moment they open the gates
