OK, so im thinking of moving up to the $3.50 fifty50 sng's from the $1.50 fifty50's and want to know how different they are, and if I will have to change how I play them.

Thanks in advance.

If anything they will be slightly easier as players can fold a hand. Just play your normal game imo, you will encounter many of the same opponents as $1.50 levels.

As I tell everyone, the first thing I do when I join any new game is identify the regs in the lobby. Optimally around 6 tables you can play your A game but more tables than this I think your game starts to suffer. So by identifying players who are 10+ tables you can exploit them, steal their blinds more and generally bully them. They won't stick around in a hand unless they have the stone cold nuts. They are generally all in or fold types even when the blinds are low.

Also look out for players who are just 1 tabling. It could (but not always) be an indication that they are poor players.

The most dangerous are those that are 4-6 tabling imo. They are confident they can multi table at a profit and are generally a decent standard (but again not always).

Generally you should avoid a game that is full of regs. They are usually ABC and easy to read but notoriously difficult to beat.
