I dont play those sng's but my guess is that the $3.30 is pretty lame as well, just a bit more nitty.
Standard tight agressive play will work fine on the next level as well.
Good suggestions 'except', the play in the $3.30 KO 90plyr. is far from being more nitty.... in fact it is just the opposite - - that tournament attracts some of the worst players on the site, TONS of way over-valuing, overaggroball players, very clueless, with just a TON of really bad play.
In the $1 90plyr. you'll see more loose/passive play (players calling down really, really light... any piece of it so value-betting the hell out of them should be your goal). In the $3 90-plyr. KO, it is 'turbo' blind structure and you'll see just the opposite of what you'll typically see in the $1 90's... huge overbets, ridiculous bet-sizing, players willing to get it while on deepstacks with very marginal hands.
Personally I wouldn't make it a goal to play the $3 KO 90's. I think you'd be better off playing the $2 180's.
As far as the consideration of how much you make over a certain time period, it really depends upon what your goals are for playing in the micros. Playing field sizes of 45-180plyrs., you'll often go many games in succession with zero cashes (ie. times where you'll go deep, then get it in w AA/KK and get donked by 88/77, etc., or where you'll be so cardead that you'll blind down to ~10bb's, shove in a good spot.. or what seems to be good & then get called down light & lose, etc. etc.,.. it's the nature of MTT/SNG play... be prepared for it).
Instead perhaps look at it as >>> time spent as a learning experience, working towards more long-term goals for playing poker.
