Here is where I need your help. I see a SNG for example $10, and the top 3 out of 6 players get $10. I see that as an effective strategy to easily win $10 seeing as its not that hard to out last the other 3 opponents. But then I see a $10 SNG with a first place cash prize of $40-50 although only top 3 are payed out of 9 players, only 2 payouts are really worth the play time. That is riskier and harder, but I see that might make you a better player, and with strict bank roll management you are bound to get first, second place on a decent amount. Now, I have a $100 bank roll and won't be playing the $10 games obviously, which SNG is better for me to build my bank roll? And does that change when it gets bigger to the other one? If so when?
I'd suggest that the DoN's are likely to be softer as there's typically newer players making bigger mistakes in them. Each requires a different strategy & if you want to be a winning player in them I'd suggest researching each of them & doing a bit of homework (it'll make a big difference!)

re: Poker & Which SNG are better?
What do you think of this plan?
$100 Bank Roll
$2Tournaments until $150 Bank Roll.
Make avg $8/day profit 5x a week.
$3 Double Or Nothing Tournaments Until $200 $12/day
$4 Double Or Nothing Until $250
(Half a week)
$5 Double Or Nothing Until 500
(2 and half weeks)
(A little over a month by now until I reach stage two)
$10 Double Or Nothing Until:650
$12 Double Or Nothing Until $1000
$20 Double ot Nothing Until $1,500
(1 and half week)
$25 DoN til $3,000
(About 3 Months)
So far it's been about (5 Months maybe 6 til I hit next stage)
$100/Day $500/Week at this point start cashing out $1,000 a month for myself keep $1,000 building bank roll
$30 DoN until 4,000
$120/Day still only take out $1,000
$160/Day $640/Week Take out $1,400 a month do myself
Keep playing $40 DoN but 5 hrs a day
$200/Day $4,000 a month
Cash out 2,000 a month.
So at this rate I can reach my $4k/month goals little under a ywar
Once my bank Roll hits $6,000
Was thinking I switch to Cash Games
Strategy, Accumulate enough chips to sit out until I make top 3. 4 DoN games per hour, atleast 3 hours a day 5x a week. (Taking into account atleast 4 losses) 8 Wins=4 Tournament win profits a day. $4 a day starting out profit minimum.
(1 Months til $200 bank roll)
What would you change

Game: STT / MTSNG
should factor in time to study in amongst all this, because if you wanna beat any type of higher stakes sng, you will need to be able to have a very solid game.

Either way you go make a rule never play a game where you are less than 50x to 100x your bankroll. At $10 a game you would only be 10x with a $100. It is not unusual to have a variance of not cashing in 10 SnG's. Play for the long haul to weather the storm! Start at $2.00 and see how it goes! You will gain confidence and your bankroll will increase over time.
