When I don't have the hours to put in for an MTT,I just love playing these $11- buyin 15 minute games.I've finished 1st before,though % of chips is the more important criteria,but this is the most $$ I've made at one time.
People should try them out.There's buyins & time limits throughout the day that suit most.

Thanks TS!
I think I have been playing these for roughly a year.
I started with $1.10,$3.30 & $11- buyins for the 15 min & 30 min versions.I avoided the longer $5.50 games.
Eventually I weeded them down to the 15 min @ $11- buyin,and,depending on the time of day,the odd 30 min game.
I usually play the 5:00pm EST timeslot,as I had previously forgotten to mention,I do these when I'm knocked out of any earlier MTT I may have been involved in.
In actuality,the last 3 or 4 months have seen many good runs for me.
I keep them sorted by Tourney>All>time(Typed in the search box)

Thanks again!
And G/L to you!!

What is the best strategy for playing these?
Do you have to be more/less loose or aggressive?

Sorry I missed this.
First,I thought loose means you play a wider range of hands,which I never do here.
Patience,position & a good hand is what I aim for.Yes,you can be patient in a 15 minute game.
Remember,as long as you have chips,you cash.And I think 1600 is break even.
Anyways,that's how I play them.
G/L to you!!
