Good question. And I don't remember this particular twist being discussed.
A few cosiderations;
-The pay structure in limited MTT's is fixed, so I'm thinking that you want to pay attention to the percentage of players who cash. In large field MTT's (unknown # of tables to start, the pay structure is seldom fixed until registration/rebuys/add-ons are finished and the total pool is established. However, there is generally some indication about which payout structure is used under a 'Tourney Info' tab or page.
-With fewer buy-ins, you might want to seek games with the highest payout percentages in regards to number of players cashing vs number of players entered. Bodog has a 50% game for instance where the payouts are smaller, but spread wider.
-Other good examples are the structures used in satellites. For instance to get a $26 token at Full Tilt you can go about it a few different ways;
HU at $13.75
18 players at $8.80 with 5 players getting a ticket- left overs to bubble
18 players at $6.60 with 4 players getting a ticket- left overs to bubble
9 players at $4.40 with 1 ticket and a 2nd place of $10
And a few variations of FTP satellites.
Some games are structured better, and can vary traditional BR management theories for each person.
