Multi tabling tubo sit&go's is fairly low variance by nature, if you play tight aggressive like I do. They arent' as low variance as regular speed, but they allow you to increase volume,and increased volume=lower variance. Why? Well firstly, 33% of the table gets paid, so it's easier to consistently cash. Also, at the lower stakes (I'm playing $16 turbos right now) there are 2 types of players that are extremely prevalent: the fish, and the guy playing like 24 tables at once. What does this mean for a guy like me, who usually plays 5-8 tables? It means playing against idiots, and people that have a ridiculously low VPIP%, like under 10%. They are very predictable, so all I have to do is avoid playing mediocre hands against them, and hopefully bust them when the blinds go into the 200/400 and beyond. All things considered, it isn't too hard to keep a steady ROI%.
Do you disagree? If so, I'm open to hear why. I've only been at it for a few months, but I haven't had many losing streaks.
