For my CC friends - a little gem.
Yesterday, with thanks to a buddy, I found a little money making machine. The 70FFP 10-man winner takes all turbo SNG's found on PokerStars
are absolutely beautiful if your in the buisness of making money.
The play is awful (see HH below) and the prize is a nice $11.
Thats a pretty good return. If you win one in five (very easily done) that gives $11 per 450FPP which = 2.5c per FPP (unless my calculation is wrong).
General strategy is like a SNG. Play super tight in the first rounds, but generally make your calling range a bit wider. Once your on the 3rd or 4th level you know who's shoving what range. The donks are obvious. Call them a lot wider. Remember it's all calculated using cEV so get it in ahead and you can't go wrong.

IMO this is a great use of FPP's (the less people that read this the better... we don't want the standard being high)
