In each round, I generally can easily break even, and can usually eke out between one or two buy-ins.

January 22nd, , I would like to know about the tournaments fifty-fifty. I was, admittedly, playing above my bankroll and probably also playing too much auto-pilot, which tends to happen after I play the same type of game for too long. Other than that, there are far more profitable forms of poker to invest your money in.

Overview And Strategy Primer for The Fifty50 SNGs At Pokerstars
With Pokerstars taking the controversial decision to close their popular Double or Nothing SNGs , their replacements — known as Fifty 50 SNGs — have sweetened the pill for many players. This article gives you an overview of what is available and how the structure works for the new format, and then looks at some high level factors which affect your strategy for these games.
Fifty 50 SNGs end when there are 5 of the original 10 entrants left. At this point half of the prize pool basically your entry fee minus the rake is paid out to the winners.
The remaining half of the prize pool is paid according to the number of chips you hold when the game ends. Only 10 player NL Holdem games are featured at the moment.
With a wide range of buy-in levels from the micros up available, turbo 3 minute blinds and standard 6 minute blinds are running. I expect to see the variations increase once these games are established.
Rake fees are smaller than for standard SNGs with the Turbo games having a smaller fee than the standard speed games. Opponents at the lower levels will make big enough mistakes to make the games profitable for you just by playing solid poker.
At the mid-stakes and above you will need to identify and exploit the weaker players, and adjust to the the tendencies of the grinders too. In my view the key to exploiting opponents in these games is to identify those who understand how the prize pool affects their end-game on a conceptual level, at the detailed level have checked the math!
Each of these players have different push-fold ranges… and if you know an opponents ranges you can find out the most profitable adjustment. If you want to know the bubble math well enough to be consistantly profitable - then an ICM Calculator is a must. This is available via a low price monthly subscription, and willl pay for itself over and over again!
