should i play in tournaments with bigger buy in?
can u tell me your average buy in ?
First of all: you are new, so you NEED to play on the lowest buyin that you find to gain some practice(freerolls could be better).
2nd, ending 200/3500 tells
you nothing, since you could have made lots of mistakes and you could have been lucky. Its better to learn how to play and crush average players on your level rather than playing higet buyins.
3rd, never play with more than 1% of you bank on a MTT because variance can be brutal.
4th, if you are learning, why don't you focus on improving your game rather than playing higher buyin tournaments?
