This is a discussion on PS Double-or-Nothing... within the online poker forums, in the Poker Rooms section; Does anyone here play the Double-or-Nothing SNG tournaments at PokerStars? I have been looking at them, but don't know if I want to play them
Fairly easy, you get a few people that get real aggressive and and end up knocking a couple people out right of the get go then you just have to outlast 3 more. I actually played a $10 one about a month ago and I knocked out all five people in a matter of 17 minutes, quickest game I had ever played at that level.

They used to be easier. People have learned to tighten up.
But yeah, they're still beatable. A couple people will have no chance and donk off their money.
When it gets to bubble time, there will be a few short stacks. If you're short, it's best to shove on the shorties blinds (who are likely to fold) and avoid tangling with the big stacks (who are more likely to call).
But of course, fold to the money when your stack allows you.
