This is a very good question! But it depends on the style of each player and the target that you have for the tournament!
1) If you have the intention of winning the tournament and you have a lot of patient and time and play tight agressive you should play since the beginning to accumulate more chips and with less dependance of variance and lucky and with more chance to have a good stack close to the bubble and for the final period!
2) If you have the intention of finising ITM and convert the ticket in real money
(normally at least 2X the value of the ticket) and also you do not have so much patience and time so you should register in the end of Late Registration period and then you should play tight only in the beginning to shove in good spots and with good hands to double but with the blinds already high maybe soon you will have to become much more agressive than usual and less selective and depending a little of lucky but you will be very close to the bubble to ITM!!
I personally like to play short-stack and usually chose the second option and I have a good success on it to increase my bank-roll since I finish ITM in a good percentage of the times!
After your experience using this very good ticket of $109 please provide your comments here about it, ok?

How you handle such long late reg?
Do you wait to register just before end of late reg?
It is a 1 re-entry tournament,
but I did not have $ or other ticket to be able to re-entry...
