It’s almost time for Todd’s SnG Bonanza Day! I’ll be playing somewhere around 10-20 SnGs tomorrow at Empire, UB, PokerStars, and Pacific. The plan is very basic, start at the $10 SnG level and try to build the bankroll to at least $120 at a given site. Play in a $100+9 SnG (which would be my highest ever) in the evening (when there are more drunks playing). Hopefully, after winning and/or placing in a couple of these, I’ll build my bankroll back over $500, possibly as high as $2K. No multis here, I don’t want to waste three hours and not cash somewhere. All SnG, all the time, build the bankroll an hour at a time.

I’ll start at the tightest site, UB. Probably around 9am, trying to catch the East Coast lunch breakers who might try some stupid all-ins so they can get back to work. I may multi-table, I’m not sure yet, but I’ll play in at least three $10+1. Any winnings will be put towards either more $10 SnGs or some $30 SnGs (I don’t think they have $20), until I get to $120 (or $0).

Next stop will be PokerStars. I’ll probably go for a couple of the $15+1 Turbos here, possibly two-table tournaments, probably at the same time I play in the second level at UB. I’m moving down the fish scale (Get it? Fish? Scale? God, I crack myself up) from tight to fanatically loose. If I cash, I’ll move up to the $25 or $30 SnGs, and so on.

Third stop is Empire. I may just go straight to the $20 tables here, possibly two-table setups, before jumping to the $50 and $100 level. My ID here is ToddCommishE (note the final E for Empire). I added the E to differentiate this ID from my Party ID just in case they don’t like bonus whores who try to use the same name at both skins. I’ll probably hit here around 2pm or 3pm PDT.

Last stop will be an evening run to Pacific as TCommish. I already have over $110 here, but still think the $16 20-seaters are a gold mine, so I might just stay there. If they had $32 20-seaters, I’d play those. I’ve had the best luck at Pacific with my peculiar weak-tight style, so I’m most reluctant to cash out entirely from them. It may depend on how well I do at the first three stops on my traveling train wreck.

I’ll probably live blog some of the day, so check back tomorrow to see how a mediocre poker player can survive 10-14 consecutive hours of online poker, playing NOTHING but Sit-n-Gos. Worst case, I lose everything in my current bankrolls (around $200-250) and pocket my withdrawn profits of $1500 and take a hiatus. Best case, I bulldoze all four sites and take home $500+ per site for $2000 additional profit. Should be fun. Or horrifying.
