So after busting in these two tournaments like this right after each other on like standard flips. it just seems to me volume is such an important factor when grinding mtt. Like seems like when it comes to mtt its all about quantity over quality. And ive been reading a book and im pretty sure there is like a multitabling myth about playing a simplistic game when multi tabling like its not true just because your playing 25 tables your decisions are just plain abc moves and would not be profitable. Its something about training yourself to process all the necassery information faster. so just because someone is playing 25 tables doesn't mean there skill is just stripped down to the basics. it probly would for someone who is a begineer at that number of tables but for someone who has trained themselves they still could maintain a high quality of poker.. But im not sure, this information is a little blury need to read the book again lol but something like that. But for sum reason I feel when it comes to mtt you should forget about playing quality and go for volume.
If that's the way you view it then go for it, no need to post the question in the first place . Yes it's somewhat true that you can play 25 tables well, however the players that do that have worked their way up to it, and study the shit out of spots so that there are no grey areas in their game. I know SNG players who play 30-40 tables at once, even buyins over $100 average. They didn't get there by starting out playing that many, they played 8 tables, then 10-12 etc adding a few more tables as they got more experience. But overall, you have to play a more simplistic game, theres nothing wrong with it, however saying you can pay as much attention as playing 25 games compared to 12 games is silly.
At the end of the day it's up to you, you have to be able to critique yourself and come up with the right answer for your sitauation. I think you have come up with it when you are focusing on quantity over quantity. I think it's a fine way to go, but obviously they are pros and cons to it which i'm sure you know by now. Overall though, more quantity is going to be better than high skill with no quantity .
