I don't play sng's these days but I have in the past.
I don't really see anyone making any significant amounts of money playing STT-SNG at lowstakes (< not sure how much $ do you consider 'low'? .. I would assume that's $7 to $15 buyin?.. or $10-$20 depending upon what site you're on)
The small group of regulars who I do see making some money in SNG's (playing volume & with a much higher ROI than the guys playing STT-SNG) are the guys who are regularly playing the 18's & 27's (reg. speed) or the 45's & 180's (including the 180 man w rebuys). Even at $3-$7 (on Stars) you'll see the occassional reg. there with over $10k profit, roi above 20%. (the ones with highest ROI seem to be the guys/gals (regs.) who play the 18man & 27man reg. speed).
