Failing to learn the intricacies of MTT strategy doesn't "hold you back" if you never intend on playing many MTTs in the first place. I say just pick what you're good at / want to be good at or enjoy playing the most and then just take it from there.

While I was attempting the Sat Seat Challenge, during the MiniFTOPS, I was playing in the 36-peep SO SNGs...they're quite fun but I'm just not very good @ them. My thinking was, hey, I can maneuver through much larger fields so going up against 35 other peeps should be easy...uh, no (not for me anyway).
I was successful with taking down my table to make it to the Final Table but I just couldn't take down 1st place (best finish = 2nd & seat only went to 1st + places paid = 3). I played a lot of these & for the amt I used towards Sat buy ins I could have just bought into the event I was trying to win a seat for (actually, I could have bought several seats ).
I'm unaware of any 6-handed freerolls
(where I tend to practice concepts to learn &/or develop into habits) to improve my short handed play...I may wander over to the play money tables to scout things out.
These days I'm test driving the 90- or 180- KO SNGs...they're also as fun as the SOs but I'm more consistent about getting ITM & if I don't, the KOs offset the buy in. Right now I'm trying various buy-in levels & my current comfort zone appears to be the $3 + $0.30 games.
