For a long long time, I defended the play at the lowest levels, with the caveat that the first several orbits are always treacherous. I still believe the low levels are a place one must feel comfortable at.
However, as I have progressed, and now find myself with an actual bankroll, I will admit the play changes as one moves up the levels. It gets more predictable. I am not sure that is a good thing though.
I am still playing micro limits when I play ring games, and small stakes in sng's. I may reward myself very soon with a try at a bigger stake sng or small MTT, probably favoring the sng.
If you have the br, try a step up, I learned that in many ways real money is easier than play money, or freerolls
. Again, it seems more predictable.
At this point, I can equate $5 sng's to 10,000 play money sng's.
