Default How to turn 80 bucks into 700 bucks in 2 weeks

I decided to start a SnG challenge. My goal of the whole project was to turn SnG's into a huge moneymaker, and I did just that. I started playing the 6+1 single tables, 3 at a time....After a ton of hours, I moved onto the 10+1 and Im currently at the 20+2's.....Its been two weeks since I started and Im currently at 710.00 in my bankroll. Not a bad return for two weeks of play.

I would suggest Sng's to anyone trying to build a bankroll - they are money

Oh, I think I might try that. How many buyins did you use as a yardstick before moving up? I'm always up for a challenge.

My general rule of thumb is 30-35 buy-ins. When I started, I really should of started at the 2 dollar games, but I started at 6+1. When I get around 300, I started playing 10+1. Currently Im at 840.00 so Im playing mainly some 10+1s and some 20+2s. I'll probably move up to 20 and 30s when I get to 1200.

I finally hit 1000 today. It took nearly 250 SNG's but it finally happened. Not bad for a little over 2 weeks of work.

You are better then World Class. Why are you playing such tiny games. What are you afraid off.

If you are crushing as you say you SHOULD be playing MUCH higher games.

Good luck with the adventure.

What is your Rate of Return???

(Money won - money invested) / money invested = ROI

Also - what is your In The Money (ITM) %

I don't play SnGs a lot but win a few hundred in 11 and $22 my ROI is 37% and ITM is 51%

Im not really "crushing" the games....my ITM is usually 40-45% on avg...

my numbers are somewhat close to you in ROI and ITM

40-45% is not bad at all. It's all about the bottom line. ROI (Return on Investment)
