I have been doing decent at micro cash games and have decided to give a few sng's a try. Wondering a couple of things..


- What would a good sample size be to see if I'm a "winning" tournament player at a specific game. (Focusing on the .25 - 45 man SNG's)
ie.. 10 tournaments, 20 tournaments?

I consider myself a decent player at the micro stakes but know I have a lot to learn about tournaments.

- Are there any tournaments you would recommend other than the .25 (45 MANS) for a beginner?

I play the 45's and 90's in blocks of 100. I'd say a few thousand should give an idea of where you stand.

Have to agree with JWK that several 1000's are needed.

Oethr games include the 10 cent 360 man games, 27 cent games at 10pm EST.

I track them in groups of 100 tourneys together.
