My strategy for low BR building
I've been doing a lot of 1 table SNG's lately. I've been doing ok, but getting more 2nd and 3rd than first.
I then signed up for a sat tourney to work on my FT academy challenges. I signed up for a sat to the BLT, which actually pays out better than the single table SNG. (unless you take 1st of course, but with me, i was getting more 2nd and 3rd).
1 Table SNG buy-in 1.20
1 Table SNG Sat to BLT buy-in .80
1st - 3rd Ticket to BLT worth 2.20
You can cash it in for a profit of 2.19 after they take their fee
The games are a lot softer and fishier than the regular SNG, and pretty easy to place in the top 3.
Is there something I'm not seeing here, or is this a decent strategy to get my BR up so I can start playing the $2 SNGs? I can see this as a better long term strategy (unless you're consistently taking 1st on regular SNGs.)
Also note, there are lower buy-ins to this tourney, .45 or so, but it only awards 1st the ticket, and 2nd your buy-in back for -.05 profit after their rake.
