I originally thought I'd try it on a play table, but those are usually all-in fests, whereas a $1.00 table people have a little $$ actually committed. Has anyone else ever tried this? Do you think it could work? Again, low stakes, nothing high staked.
While it could be a valid exercise, I doubt doing it on $1 tables would help you achieve your first goal: $1 SnG players often don't have any concept of position and what it means... at least, not until you get down to the bubble, and even then you're hard pressed sometimes.
Also, if you play a STT turbo, at least half the time you can pretty much fold every hand and still make the money.
It might help you with your second goal, though again, getting reads on players at this level can be intersting at the best of times
Good luck though!
