Default SNG Challenge

One thing that I like to do if I have a spare couple of hours (like when the wifey is taking a long nap) is start with a buck at the $1 6-person SNGs and try to score a win. The payout at the Titan Turbos is 70%-30% and the tournies are quick (about 20 minutes).

If I lose or come in 2nd, I'll stay at the $1 level. If I win, then I'll move up to the $2 level.

Then you continue until you make your goal (at least 3 levels). I've made it up to the $5 level, then had to quit because of time. It give you a chance to play at the higher levels. If you win three levels, you can turn a buck into about $25. Anyone else try this ?

Sounds like a good idea. I perfer the 10 person SnGs then the 6 person ones, but I might have to try out this strategy.

I only like to play shorthanded, except in MTTs where anything is good, so I really like the 6 man sags. I just started a SAG run on Titan, starting out at a $2.20 6 man. I won it and I'm now playing a Rio, my favorite SAG on Titan.

-Guess this isn't really doing the incremental challenge, but if I win the Rio I'll play a Fort Knox.

what do you do if you lose at the 2$ level?

seeing as payout in 1$ level is $4.20 for first place
if u lose a game at 2$ level, u'll have 2 $ left (as the fee is 0.2$)

do you move down again then?

I take the profit and start over at the first level again. The original idea is to move up when you win, stay at the same level if you get a 2nd place, and start all over if you lose. I think that BBP players should be able to make some money and maybe hit the occasional Jackpot (win the third level). This is just an idea on how to play at higher levels with minimal investment. Consider this your own personal little Satellite. More fun than playing a dollar or two in the lottery !!

Agreen, I see why you like the Rio SNG. Correct me if I'm wrong. It's a 6 person SNG with a $20 Buy-in and the payout is 50%-30%-20% ($60-$36-$24). So if you can just finish third, you will break even. You could probably use this as your first level, then move up into the $50 Buy-in with a win ...

Never played in one of these. May have to try it out. Sounds like fun.

A $20 buy-in is kind of big for my stack.
It's a good ideea but i must raise my stack first and begin with lower buy-ins.
