Every guide or forumpost about SNG's they talk about how easy it is to get started as a winning player if you start out with STT. All beginners with a basic understanding will be a winner at the micro SNG! blablabla
That makes STT incredible frustrating for me. Im currently 380games in at pokerstars, mostly 1,5$ STT. And my ROI is 3,2 at 1,5$ games. With an overall at -9,5. Meaning im down 41$ from my initial bankroll of 200$.
My finish distribution are
I just find that 75% of the players, even at the micro's, play super tight. When the push/fold game starts we are usually 7 players left. And this push/fold game actually last quite long. Because many of the players push from any postion with others players usually respecting their pushes. Which means that when I'm in position there is usually a guy that has allready pushed before me and I then have to fold most of my range.
This forces me to push mediocre+ hands from out of position and that usually ends up with me losing in 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th place!
