How do people win MTT's?
I've just been looking at some tourney lobbies on pokerstars
mainly the scoop and nightly 30k or nightly 50k etc. and i'm wondering, how do people win these things?
I've played a few depositor freerolls
and managed to get in the money and get around 40cents but there's just so many people going all in that in higher levels of the tournament it's just luck that matters? go all in or lose?
Or is it because it's a freeroll? people don't care and just shove? do people play more tight when their money is involved such as 55$ or more?
Is practicing on 1.50 - 3$ mtt's a good way to start ?
I've turned 18 last week and finally made my own account on pokerstars. I've decided to deposit 50$ which gave me 20buy-ins for 2NL + 10$ for practicing some tournaments. After a week my br is up to 72$.
I've decided to play like this - I play 1 or 4 tables 2NL - if 1 table i want to get 1buy-in profit which will be 2$ and if 4 tables i want 1buy in profit spread on 4 tables so its 0.50c on each or 2$ on 1 table etc. you know what i mean, as long as i get my 2$.
If i lose my 2$ buy in however, i stop playing for the day and start the next day still wanting to win only 2$ and not trying to win back what i lost the previous day.
If i move up to 5NL and lose 5days in a row which would be 5 buy-ins (25$) i would move back to 2NL.
Is this good bankroll management?
I haven't yet lost any buy-ins but I'm sure i will stick to my bankroll managemet.
Also about the tournaments, how do you go deep in them ?
