Knockout vs. non-knockout tournament strategy?
I'm a tournament NLH player accustomed to the deep stack, 12 min. level, micro tournaments on Carbon. Recently a big win increased my bankroll enough that I want to try playing in more expensive tournaments. The problem is that the level I want to move up to ($5.50) only offers knockout tournaments during my spare time.
1. Are knockout tournaments similar enough to non-knockout tournaments that I can still have an edge in them?
Obviously this knockout structure changes shoving/ICM strategy. For a $5.50 tournament, it's a $0.50 fee and $1.00 for knockout with 3,000 starting chips. So I believe a knockout is the mathematical equivalent of winning 600 extra chips in regard to odds
calculations. e.g. someone's all in and the pot is 2000 - I pretend it's 2600.
2. Is that the correct approach for maximum profit in these tournaments?
3. Are there any other changes that I should be aware of for transitioning from non-knockout to knockout tournaments?
Thanks in advance
