I like MTT because if your TAG and you build a healthy stack, it's easy to sit back and wait for the cards most of the time, and in SNG you have to start playing looser earlier in the game. I also find the variance to be greater in a SNG. I mean, if you think trips and boats won't get cracked, wrong! lol, j/k. That's just a hunch though. Alot of people don't have the patience for MTT but they see such a big prize, so they contribue to the pot, ultimately being dead money. Much more fishies in MTT. In SNG you have to be super tight. don't be afraid to check a monster down to the end because when they see that, that will stop them from betting at you all the time when you check. use a strict starting hand guide, and be agressive. don't get carried away with your AQo, AJs, or pocket jacks. If your short stack, try to wait for a semi decent ace or pair and push, if they are tight, they will fold, and if they in their in the mood for action they will call you down with weaker hands most of the time. If there is alot of raising preflop, i will slowplay, and it works like a charm most of the time. If the flop is a 3 card flush or str8, i will be cautious with my high pair. Most of the time they have 1 of that suite and need one more to come on the turn or river, but if you track, then watch their check-raise%, this tells
you how sneaky and trappy they like to be . And also, most people tend to raise or fold with an ace or king in their hand instead of call, so that might help narrow your range. Watch their stack sizes and know what kind of zone they are in, it will help you predict why they are so agressive and what kind of hand ranges they are pushing with.
