S&G, best size and payout?
I have been getting just drilled on the cash games the last month so I have been focusing on S&Gs on PS since they fill up fast. Now for all of you S&G nuts, which is the best ones to play.
1 table - 9 or 10 seaters. They have smaller payouts but 30-33% make it into the money. You really need to make top 2 to make any real money
since third is usually just enough to cover the next S&G.
2 or 3 table - 18 or 27 seaters. Odds
decrease to make it into the money since only about 22% on 18 ppl or 18% on 27 ppl make it into the money but you can make more and not have to make it into the money as often to see a profit.
The 45 ppl or 180 ppl - Chance to make some real money for your investment but significantly harder to make it in the money, 15% for the 45 ppl and 10% for the 180 ppl.
I started to look closer and realized this for the games on actual places that make money (money back and at least a little profit):
9 ppl - top 2 = 22%
18 ppl - top 3 = 16%
27 ppl - top 5 = 18%
45 ppl - top 6 = 13 %
180 ppl - top 18 = 10%
I understand it is all about winning these things to truely make any profit but is the extra time invested in the multi-table ones worth the larger payouts? With just a 4% difference I would say that the 27 person ones are the best since you can get a real increase in money for a first and there is only a 4% difference in profitable finishes. Am I just way over anylizing these things or does all this make sense? I don't get alot of time to play online anymore so I want to make the most of it by playing smarter and where there is more money to be made.
