I used to be an MTT player a few years ago but that got switched to SnG. The swings aren't as bad and I don't have to commit for several hours! I think the best games for me are the DoN games. The key is to put in volume, which actually is kinda hard when you work a lot and have a small child. My laptop has a kinda small monitor so I can only play 6 at a time, but my gf is afraid I'll get addicted so she only wants me to play 2. We then made a compromise so I just play 4. Not enough to give me any real profit but at least I'm making some money.

I played in the past many sit and go in pokerstars poker rooms, but i was not successful due to the those bad beats in their software.
This has demoralized me and i quit these games.
I had no profit and the river destroyed me a lot. With that attitude i gave up. Sad

Yes, the DoN are speed and the mode of playing is very easy, so you can make a good volume with that. Are you in a professional poker`s project? Or you only think in make an alternative monthly income? I started to learn because I want to do this, make a regular (little) income. As you know, I`m a SnGs player, might we meet in the tables GL!

In pokerstars you played regularly sit and go games? In case you played there, you had extra or minus because in my situation i did not make a profit there. I was thinking of knowing how you did with those bad beats? It was bad or it was ok?

I tries to play some spin and go tournament and to me personally it is much better to play double or nothing tournament. Spin and go you need to have bigger bankroll than don and some more luck also, because you not make bigger multiplyer very often and you must win when you get to have good profit

You have to wait for the erru9107 answer, but I think that nobody loves bad beats. The matter with that is to learn to take it as a part of the poker game. The real problem is when a bad beat produce a tilt situation (and worst thing if you break your mouse or your monitor). You have to believe in the Universe Equilibrium... at some moment you could be recompensed! Blink

I was not talking with Erru. I talk with you and i was curious how are you doing in this site.
Your evolution is good here? or you do not play sit and go games at pokerstars?
I would like to know because i want to try to play more here because i want to take a break from the other room where i play. Smile

Well, Multi table tournaments are the best option for the possibility of winning big, but require a lot of time and patience, besides luck and skill of course.

I like playing S'n'G, but they cannot bring big prizes. Maybe if you manage to achieve winning streaks within the tournaments with considerably big buy-ins.

My favorite combination is to play a good Multi table tournament with a big prize pool through hours, and at the same time few S'n'G' just for fun and keeping attention.

Well Treebeard, you have a lot of attention capacity! Multi tables tournament and a few of Sits? Too much for me! I can play four or five tournaments, maybe three freerolls and two with Buy-in. Or, if I`m playing SnGs (four tables maximum) and a good freeroll is starting, I might play it but nervous by the simultaneous format...

when I don’t have a lot of free time, of course I play sit and Go .... since the tournament is a quick result ... in a few minutes .... but if I have a lot of free time, I can play the multi-table tournament ... Interesting enough ... you can check your exposure and flair

I want to play sit and go but double or nothing with 8 or 10 players and 4 or 5 players win.
I think this is a good way to create a bankroll during the week and on Sunday with what i won, to use them to buy the entry in a few tournaments.
Maybe it's better and with beautiful chances. Smile

But take this advise CALICUL, you have to play in low/middle buy-in, where the rake is less. I told here my experience in Coral Poker, when I was trying to make some points to a tracked account. I played $ 0,10 and $ 0,20 BI, 10 max, SnGs DoN. I was playing one hundred of them, winning 63%, and I lost $1, because the fee was more than 20% Sad

Then, there is no point to play these sit and go games. If it does not exist benefits the only good thing is the wagering. I knew that. It is not worth to playing these games because you waste your time and earnings are small or you lose money. Cash and Tournaments are very good for wager and maybe for money. Smile

20% commission This is certainly a lot .... I honestly do not understand why you played in this poker room if there 20% are removed from each win ... 10% is more or less normal .... but if winnings and The losses are approximately equal, then of course you do not need to play sit n go

I can explain you. I had only $2 in my Coral Poker account and I didn´t want to make a deposit to this challenge (100 points related with the rake won). So I only could play in the micro buy-in games. Is there, in the micro BI, where the rake is an abuse ($ 0,08 + $ 0,02). In the low/mid BI this not happen ($ 4,55 + $ 0,45) Blink

You should change the poker room to have a lower commission. I do not understand why Coral Poker has such a high commission. It's not a surprise that they do not have players. If they continue like that will remain without players. Something is wrong with them and the fee is too big. Sad

tournaments or sit go?
Max1403: what do you like to play in your favorite online poker rooms ???

I am more of a cash game player than a tournament player, so I rarely play any multi-table tournaments (MTTs) that take several hours or more to complete. I sometimes play single-table tournaments (STTs (SnGs)).

20% is crazy a lot .... And for example, on gray snow poker there is no cash game commission at all .... only when you leave the table a certain amount is withdrawn from the winnings ... but there are of course very few players there ... in sit n go don't play

CALICUL, I explain that that kind of rake is not for an abuse of the poker`s room. If you look for in 888poker you could see that the sit and go of $ 0,10 have the same rake ($ 0,08 + $ 0,02) the abuse is to the micro buy-in! And pajalnick, I don´t think that the rake of a cash table is the same that the micro BI of sits. And Tony, if you someday like to play $ 1, 9 max, in 888, we can meet there!

It does not matter at what stakes you play these sng games. What matters is games with a commission of 20% which is not normal. Most players lose and how you want to make a profit if the poker room perceives such a percentage? I think these games should have a percentage of 4%. This is an acceptable commission because the sng are not tournaments. Blink
