In tournaments with late registration of more than three hours, sometimes it happens to me that when entering a tournament in its last level of late registration I enter with 10BB and I manage to enter prizes instead when I enter the first levels, the opposite happens to me a few times I enter the bubble and I waste a lot of time playing, so my question, when do you prefer to enter tournaments this long? with how many minimum bb?

If this is a knockout tournament or a bounty then I prefer to start with 60 big blinds, if this is a regular tournament then I prefer to start with 40 big blinds.

In tournaments with late registration of more than three hours, I prefer to enter when there are 35 minutes left before registration ends, it gives me more chances to get on the bubble and play right

ACR is good for this, some of their tourneys have 4 hours of late registration. I like to enter with about an hour of late registration left.

The later you register for the tournament, the lower your ROI will be, which will be accompanied by a higher level of variance. This means that you will need a tighter approach to bankroll management. For example, a comfortable bankroll for $ 11 buy-in tournaments is between $ 1,500 and $ 3,000. But if you register late in these tournaments, you will have to play with a short stack (20-30bb), which will increase the variance fluctuations, so you will need a larger bankroll (2 or 3 times the above amount).

It's OK to get into a game late but not too late. It's best to have a least 20 big blinds to work with. Otherwise It's just too much of a gamble.

I find late is better to conserve mental energy. An early start can result in a very long grind.

Not a huge fan of the real long late reg tourneys, but now and then they can be a nice cherry pick if the guarantee is high. If you're joining in right at the end of the late reg and it's not far from the bubble, can be worth it. Yes, you're short stacked as hell usually, but even then, sometimes can hold on into the money. Not a huge ROI in that case, but it's not losing. If you can double through a couple times, got a shot at FT where you can make the cash as well. I've seen it discussed in here where people use that strategy almost exclusively and from their talk, do well at it. I like to build up from the start, even though it's a lot more hours of play, just suits me more i guess.

I think it is better for the very skilled players to register early, because they can have more time to utilize their skill advantage, on the other hand, for those players who are weak and more depend on luck, it's good for them to enter late and hope to get lucky to double up and finally get ITM without too much effort.
