So recently I won two tickets that for my current bankroll looks like 1k to me ($11 and $55) and I wonder what you type of tournament (bounty, freezeout, turbo, slow) or variant would you play if you had won a big ticket like that and you have any tips for these situations :D

It depends on where you've won this tickets.If possible,I'd rather play something like Double or Nothing in order to reduce the variance.If not, then I would definitely choose bounty tournaments.

Definitely a bounty tournament. You are able to triple your buy-in (or more) without having to win the tournament.
It is best to register on time for bounty tournaments to try and busy the fish early and collect their bounties

I would choose the format, which you are most used to play at lower limits. I would probably not choose a turbo though, since I would want to make an experience out of this, especially the 55$ ticket. Its still poker, so just play your best, but also play only that one and try to pay attention to, what the good players are doing, that might be different from lower limits.

I like to play at single tables.The chances to get ITM are higher than long hours tourneys.

Deep stack so that I have more decisions to make and not feel the blinds changing the feel of the game too early

My peference would to play the slow normal tournaments. Less luck, more tactical strategy and more wiggleroom to manouver.

Definitely a deep stacked slow structured MTT and if I wanted to get paid before ITM or I had the feeling that my skill level is way off that buy in then a PKO.

If I were you I would play one of each variant since you won 2 tickets.

When you get tickets like these I always want to win at least some money with them and the best chance of that would be the bounty tourneys. So that is what I would probably use them for even though I am probably better at freezeouts

What type tournament would I play?

Hello. First, I would feel very fortunate. Very few get there. If I won a $1000 ticket, I would do everything under the sun to be prepared for that game. If I had a $1000 bank, I would play MTTs and also venture into some $25 SNGs.

For myself who plays micros, I would likely play a PKO as even just 1 or 2 bounties at a 1k buyin could be a nice increase to the bankroll.

A slow tournament, if it has a bounty included will be perfect haha but still a slow tournament is better for that $55 ticket. Regards.

I would want to play single table SnGs. In higher limits than Im use to, good solid poker could win out against better players at the higher levels in these short tournaments.

I would look for a guarantee(overlay), with no late entry, no rebuy, no multi entry.
