Been away from poker for a while as I've been caught up with my studies. However, I'm currently playing a SnG on Stars and I've noticed that they've introduced antes from the very first hand to all SnGs. I'm playing a standard 6-max, and the blind structure has started at 10/20 with an ante of $3.

Not sure why the change, but I'm assuming it's to speed up play and help players who have disconnected to blind out quicker. Nervertheless, it means I'll have to adjuect my play slightly.
