11 games in as new SNG/MTT micro player--at the right level?
Hello again, guys.
Well, I made my first deposit three days ago, and have had a couple of wins. But with my limited bankroll, I'm wondering if I need to go down a level, take a break to study, or eliminate MTTs and just focus on SNGs. Here are my results so far:
2/16/08 - $25 Deposit @ PKR.com
1st place (out of 10) - $5 won - $1 + .1 entry fee
6/10 - $0 - $1 + .1
1/50 - $30 - $2 + .2
4/10 - $0 - $1 + .1
low/50 - $0 - $2 + .2
19/50 - $0 - $2 + .2
9/10 - $0 - $1 + .1
8/10 - $0 - $1 + .1
1/10 - $5 - $1 + .1
2/10 - $3 - $1 + .1
8/12 - $0 - $2 + .2
When I win, I feel like my game is average, but I still get lucky and make a couple of bad plays. When I lose, I only feel that I played well about half of the time.
With my limited bankroll, I'm wondering if it's best to go down to a .50 SNG at another site ($1 + .1 is PKR.com's lowest). I do have a free $10 waiting for me at Victor Chandler.
On the other hand, I'm aware that SNGs are high variance, and the fast blinds can be murder if you don't get good cards. Maybe I I just need to cut out the expensive (but high return) MTTs and focus on my SNGs with the exception of the occasional indulgence. While I think I played well in the 50-person I won, I don't want to get a bloated head and think that I can do that very often.
Or, I could limit it to one SNG every day or every other day and devote a week or two to Harrington on Hold 'em volumes one and two, which I ordered yesterday.
What do you think?
