Here is Part 3 of my look at how the top 5 SNG players stack up for the first four months of 2012 in a variety of different formats on PokerStars. This part is focused on Multi-Table SNGs. Use the link below if you missed the earlier parts in the series.
Part 1 - HUSNGS
Part 2 - STTs
Part 3 - MTTSNGs
Multi-Table SNGS, or MTTSNGs (yes, one of the "T"'s in the generally used acronym is somewhat superfluous) have risen in popularity over the last few years. I think this can largely be attributed to 9-man SNGs becoming solved/reg-infested/unbeatable, with players looking for a player-pool with a better fish:reg ratio and higher attainable ROI's. They can also be good for recreational players, as 180-mans especially have some of the attributes of MTTs that can see a massive return on a small investment for winning.
45-mans and 180-mans also have hourly sync breaks so can be mixed in by MTT players. I've been praying multiple times a day for sync breaks to be added to 18-mans, but alas, PokerStars have so far decided not to add them for these games so far.

One interesting thing about JayPez is that he chooses to play on multiple different poker sites as a means of table selection and to get in extra volume. I respect this as personally that would tilt me too hard: I like the smoothness of the PokerStars client and the functionality of TableNinja too much :). Across all sites Jay-Pez has cashed for over $1 million in tournaments.
