I do note that I normally will not enter into a MTT if average stack is more than 2,000chips than the start stack. If that makes sense? Basically, Is it best to register prior to start time? or wait for a bit and jump in halfway though late registration? Any advice would be GREATLY appriciated! I have been scratching my head on this for a while, and being a new member of this site... thought it was the perfect place to ask! thanks!
The best time to enter should be the best stack size/blind level you play. If you can handle an early start with a large stack, then do it.
I remember reading a pro talking about this; He waits until the blinds give the person entering about 50 bigs, vs 200 to start on time. He is not good with such a large stack so early, but works marvels at 50 bigs entering.
So, you had success with each, which one are you most comfortable with/play the best?
