$11.00 MTT Difficulty?
I am a tournament player at Carbon poker
, trying to increase my bankroll as quickly/safely as I can. Currently have a total of about $136 solely from playing free rolls and $1.10s, no deposit. I cash in roughly half the $1.10s that I play, have won one. Played a $3.30 last night for the first time and again managed to run pretty deep (46th of 784). For whatever reason, I have been far less successful at cash games and I don't enjoy them as much, so the $1.10 --> $11 satellites have attracted my attention as a potentially faster-money making endeavor. However, I have never played in a $11 tournament before and don't feel like I can afford it without satellite entry - I have no idea what the skill level of the $11 field is like.
How do the $11 MTTs compare, in difficulty, to $1.10 or $3.30 tournaments? Can these $1.10 satellites be profitable? Or should I stick to the $1.10/$3.30?
