How to sign up:
You will immediately notice that a lot of players -up to 100- sign up for the free SNG’s. But tables are filled up very quickly, so within 5-10 minutes you should have 2-4 tables open and playing.

The prize pool is very low: $0.05 for a win, 2nd place $0.03 and 3rd $0.02. But the minimum buy in for the lowest cash table at Everest Poker is $0.2. So you only have to win four SNG before you can play cash poker with your free bankroll money.

Tips for playing free SNG’s at Everest Poker:
Play tight and DON’T ever slow play on these table. The competitors will call anything and go all the way to the river. I played 3 SNG´s while writing this article. Ended up with one 1st place, one 2nd place and a 3rd place finish, and a whooping profit of $0.1.
If you are only after the money, start a number of tables (Maximum is 8). Set your status to “sitting out”. This means the you will auto fold your hand. The level change is every 10 minutes, so sitting out the first 30 minutes is no problem. After this time the field should be reduced and you will have a better chance of getting “in the money”.

So in conclusion these SNG are excellent if you want a quick free SNG to practice your poker skills but also if you want to build a bankroll and have no money to invest.
