A:-D fter playing on pstars for three years, one new thing I've just learnt is if you think you can consistently make final table at an SNG, play the 45-person $3.50 MTT and avoid the 18-person $3.50.

Today I made fifth place at each one. But because the payout range for the 45-person SNG is 7 places paid and the 18-person SNG only pays out the final four people left, I won zip for placing fifth among 18, but $8 (2 1/2 times my original buy-in) for placing fifth among 45.
