  • Play Money SnGs v Real Money SnGs

    How closely do the Play Money SnGs match up with the Real Money ones, at a micro stakes level.

    I have been playing a few Play Money 9 man single tables, as well as the 27 and 45 man multi table ones to try to get a feel for the structure etc.

    Is this a waste of time in preparation for playing real money, or worth while?

    Hi Henry!

    Since I'm in the US, I've been playing a number of the 45 man play money ones. They are similar to the quarter ones, but are a bit easier..... especially near the bubble.

        Thanks, that's useful.

        Across the 9/27/45s I am just shy of 30% ITM, from memory over about 10 - 12 games. I'm not actually keeping records on them at the moment as I haven't yet finished the results tracking application I'm writing.

          Hey Henry!

          I really didn't play the 9 mans or 27 mans before black friday.

          Here's my numbers on 7 orbits of the 320 chip play $$ ones since black friday.
          ITM: 49.2%
          ROI: 149.8%

          small number of 25 cent 45's before black friday (very small number of games):
          54.5% ITM
          171% ROI
