I play ST 9-man SNGs, just 1 table at a time. Guess I'm not very good at multi-tasking . Seriously, though, I know there are many players looking at hourly rate and that's why they multi-table. They're perfectly happy to get 2nd or 3rd as they're playing so many tables all they care about is the overall profit margin...ie: 12% profit on 100 games is obviously more than 25% profit on 10. I find myself grinding less than that when I multi-table and I WANT that 67% jump in payout between 1st and 2nd...something that's hard to accomplish, for me, playing more than 1-2 tables at a time.
I've tried the early tight/loose later strategies posted here and on other forums but found myself hitting push-bot mode too often and too soon, so I stole some ideas from better players and devised a strategy that works for me. You can find 2 threads I've written in the strategy section.
My buy-ins run 2-3% of bankroll and I was extremely patient about moving up.
Now, if I can just stop playing those stupid Double or Nothing SNGs! They require a totally different strategy and it's really screwed up my head when it comes to regular SNGs!
