On Demand SNG's

Are there any On Demand SNG players from ACR here in the forums? If no, then is anyone familiar with these games? Basically, I'm just wondering if these are beatable or not. I have been dabbling in the $6.60s for the past month or two with varying success. I have noticed very few fun players and a lot of regs. The games were a little softer at the beginning of the pandemic but seem to have gotten more and more reg heavy lately. I don't know for sure, but I think that it's safe to assume that the higher buy-ins will be even more reg infested.

I'm searching for games to offset variance and get in more volume on days that I can't play MTT's. I'm looking for smaller field MTTs or SNGs. I looked at Intertops which has very small field sizes, but the structures are awful so I felt it best to forego that option.

Is it totally counter intuitive to play cash games when I can't put in full MTT sessions? I'm just finding frustration looking for the right balance moving forward. I do have experience at both game types.

    I'm working with a student at the moment who plays these on Stars, and it's very apparent that at a fixed buy-in, the fields get softer as you go from 1-table to more players. Not sure if ACR offers 45-player ones, but for someone with limited time that is likely the sweet spot. There are just a lot of single-table specialists, plus the format is essentially solved.

    Ignition has 3-table SNGs. I haven't played them more than a couple times, but I've found Ignition MTTs and cash games to be really squishy during the pandemic, and the same may be true for the SNGs. (I was in a MTT this week and there was a dude at my table consistently betting his hand: 3333 chips with pocket 3s, 6776 with 76...it was glorious.)

    I play on Ignition as well and the lower stake SNGs are definitley beatable, I've won two 3-tables and cashed in many of the single tables that don't take that much time. If you play solid pre-flop and make notes on your opponents aggression they are beatable in the low stakes.

    I have dabbled in the 3 tablers on Ignition. Unfortunately the highest buy-in they have is $11. Which is fine for now, but as I improve and move up it kinda limits my growth. Also, they fill kinda slowly, I suppose that's just more of an inconvenience than anything. But...that being said they are softer than ACR On Demand's, and serve me well for now.

    It definitely seems that now the lockdown is loosening, and the weather is getting better in the states that the tournament fields are getting smaller. Which in turn will lower variance.
