Within the past month, I’ve noticed I have been playing more often on the SnG tables, more specifically the Astral - Orion tables.
There are many benefits to playing SnG’s. Here are a few of them.
You get to play at your own convivence - Sometimes when I log in I just want to start playing. I don’t want to wait 20 minutes for an MTT to start. SnG’s are a good solution to this problem. SnG’s usually fill up quickly (It may take a little longer during off peak hours.) It is a great wait to pass the time while waiting for an MTT to start.
You can meet new friends - What I’ve discovered is like MTT’s a lot of people who play SnG’s are regulars. I played in multiple SnG’s one day and have seen some of the same players from previous tournaments earlier in the day. Playing SnG’s are a good way to make new friends.
Not getting balanced - What sometimes annoys me in MTT’s is you can play almost an entire MTT at one table then all of a sudden get balanced to a different table and have to completely change your strategy. Yes I know it’s part of MTT’s but it’s also a little annoying when your in the middle of a conversation with another player then get moved suddenly to another table without warning. With SnG’s you don’t need to worry about getting balanced. You only have to worry about that one table and trying to win the tournament.
Quick way to make chips - If you become a good SnG player you can quickly build up your bankroll. You can do this by winning SnG’s and by ranking good in the leaderboards. Before you know it you’ll have a good, healthy bankroll to play with.
Do you play SnG’s often? What do you like about them?
