We all know I got lucky in the 50/50 Syndicate. However, I want to track my play in these. I don't like the turbo's but have played a few at the lower levels. This will be a long journey with a great ending I hope.

$31.80 50/50's
$21.20 50/50's
$10.60 50/50's
$5.30 50/50's 1/1 Won: $8.33-$5.30=+$3.03

I have cashed in 6 out of 7 of these (at the $1.11 level) with an average of 50 cents profit per game. I'm doing two at a time right now, and am working my way up to 4 at a time. Considering they last less than an hour, its a great bankroll builder.

Agreed and well done alinthecount.

I will be running the $31.80's for the next 8 or 10 hours and see what I got.

GL to me!

I can recommend these too, at least the $1.11 version, both as a bankroll builder and as a low variance way to pick up the 20 fpp needed to become active for the month. The non-turbo ones usually take about 35-45 minutes.
There are some decent players grinding even in these micro stakes though, so identifying and avoiding getting in against too many of them is definitely worth the effort. Some of the other players are laughably weak at times.

I've played 50 of the $1.11 games and made it into the money 39 times (78%). With average winnings of $1.68 that makes $10 profit (18% ROI).

I am playing them very tight early on, like a normal S&G, then trying to loosen up and take advantage when players tighten up at the bubble, the small/medium stacks especially, trying to sneak into the money places. I suspect I should be capable of making a higher ROI but it will take more aggression to do it. Can't see much room for improvement on the 78% ITM.

How do others approach these, tactically?

I like your approach and just alter it by taking advantage of players OOP.
