Hi Alex,

First off welcome to Casino Listings! My suggestion to you is to play SNG's. Play low buy in's .and avoid cash tables because that will eat you alive if you have a small bankroll. Tourneys are nice but the odds are stacked against you to win when the field is so large. If you do play a tourney i would start out at the .10 tourneys the run daily or a small buy in as well.

Good luck and before you know it.......your gonna be a pro!!

I like SNGs the best too. They don't last as long as regular tournaments so they are more manageable when you're busy.

My advice would be to stay patient at first and let a few of the other players eliminate each other which they inevitably do at low stakes by going for an early double up. Then once you make the money bubble you play extra aggressive to go for the win. If you've been patient at the start then you've probably created a tight image, so you can get away with a lot more when you go for it at the end.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing at a new casino.
