This is a discussion on Casino Tournaments within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; After a year of not being able to make any road trips due to my health, I'm finally going to get to play some tournaments
After a year of not being able to make any road trips due to my health, I'm finally going to get to play some tournaments at a Casino 180 miles round trip from my home. The Tournaments I play in are $65 buy in with a starting stack of 7,000 chips and 15 minute blinds. They pay like 10% of the field.
As some of you know I'm a very tight player, On Monday and Tuesday there are like 70 players, On Wednesday and Thursday are like 110 players due to it's Senior Day in the whole Casino.
Now the question is, which size would fit my Super Nit style of play keeping in mind the starting stack and 15 minute levels? Or do I need to stay home Thanks

The 70 player ones. You'll cash more often with your style in these and the few times you do ladder up you'll make more $$. Of course I'm talking over a couple hundred of them

Those casino turbos are very difficult to cash in for the most part, especially if you play nitty...I would study some push/shove charts, the stop & go play in the blinds at smaller stack depths and rejamming ranges. Otherwise, it's very difficult to cash just hoping for the nuts every hand, you'll blind yourself away...but good luck regardless, hope you have a safe trip!

Just go with the intention to simply enjoy playing in any of the tourneys (especially because you haven't been able to go in a while) and if you win then that will be the icing on the cake! Best of luck.
