i sometimes play the highest playchip sngs on pokerstars
, i have 4 million play chips, this is how i did it: start off like everyone else, reload chips, play 9 man sngs, as many at a time as you can. before moving up the stakes make sure you have enaugh playchips to play at least 4 of the 9 man sngs.
before i ever made a dollar from poker, i first made millions of playchips and played for hours. definitely the game is really bad, but if you want to play real cash, i think, first you must be able to get tons of playchips.
also, i believe that the 200.000 playchip buyins on pokerstars is close to 1$ buyin for sngs, so its good practice.
