This is a discussion on Best Tournaments: SpinNGo or Regular? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; What do you say? Is it ok to play just in spin and go tournament all day or to play in others tournament where can
You could end up with or less then regular depending on the spin on spin n go compared to regular. It may also affect the payoff positions depending on the spin but its mainly 1 payoff with fewer players.
I would likely go with regular if its all day because at least you know for certain the payoffs, more pay potential payoff periods and amounts you win in advance even though there are more players.
What do you say? Is it ok to play just in spin and go tournament all day or to play in others tournament where can you earn more?
I would say so if you don’t have much time to play it is better to play tournaments - Spin-Go, but if you have a lot of time it is better to play sit-and-go tournaments or MTT tournaments where there is a good prize pool, but for this you need good game skill and patience and of course good luck to win such tournaments where a large number of players!
Hi,as you said you wanna play a full day session, well I´d choose regular tournaments because you´ll have more opportunities to earn more money .Of course,that will depend on your poker skills.Good luck in your sessions!
Regular sit-and-go is better. They are not so much subject to dispersion. With a stable game in them to achieve more. SpinNGo play fast. But if you do not get a prize Fund higher than x2, you will inevitably find yourself in the red.
I personally prefer the regular tournaments. I'll play Spin & Gos occasionally if I have really limited time, but don't really like the 500 starting chips. I find most of those games end up being bingo games.
If I don't feel like sitting in an all day tournament, I'll most often go with a single table Sit & Go instead of a spin & go. Regular starting chips, doesn't take all day, you know going in what the prize pool is, and is less likely to be an all out bingo match.
Spin are for fun .....but easy win and easy lose money.Regular its more safe cause you playing until the end ,max has better prices but knock out without playing when predicted hands are finished.Its better to try sit and go 9 players if you want fast games or turbo tournament.
Spins are basically hyperturbo shorthanded SnGs with an element of lottery added to them. If we ignore the lottery element for a moment, then hyperturbo is a format, where skill edge have less opportunities to show, and you end up paying more rake per hand on average. This will reduce the ROI, which a good player can acheive, but on the upside you can play more tournaments, because they are so fast. So its a bit like Zoom vs. regular cash games. Winrates are lower at Zoom, but perhaps for some this can be compensated by higher volume.
My personal experience is, that it is pretty difficult to get a positive ROI even in traditional 9-handed or 6-handed SnGs. So I have no reason to beleive, it would be a good idea for me to select a game format, where in theory at least my ROI is going to be even lower. But if you are a proven solid winner over at least 1.000 traditional 9-handed or 6-handed SnGs, then maybe its worth giving spins a shot. If I am completely honest, I mostly see them as a rake generating machine for the poker sites though.
