So maybe I could loosen up my standards for them a bit to practice a bit more - idk.
Also what do you think of two or three table SnG's - would you still classify them as MTTs. and apply the same guidelines as the massive MTTs?
Thanks everybody again
Well, the bigger the MTT the more variance. I mean how often can you expect to reach final table in an MTT with 1000's of players? You could easily be a winning player, but lose more than 35 buy-ins simply cause of the luck factor in MTT's.
And as for the 2-table and 3-table SnG's. Well the more tables the more variance, and the more variance the strickter rules you have to apply in terms o proper bank roll management.
On the other hand, when you manage to win an MTT you will have a massive boost.
When it comes to time spent on MTT's, yes they are time consuming, so dont play them unless you have enough time. On the other hand the opposition in MTT's is probably weaker than in SnG's.
