      Just wondering how many buy ins you need to play MTT's regularly? I know its 30-50 for sng, is it the same for mtt? I'm doing well in sng but I wanna win big!! n its not gonna happen playing 9 man/18 man sng's.

      Its atleast 100 buy-in's for MTT's.

      But you should not try that if you think you cant win big on one table SNG's.
      You'll be broke before dinner. :evil:

      I think MTT's are harder, but pay off better if you win lol. I can win big playing 1 table sng's but I think it could take a long time. I'll stick to sng's for now then, hopefully my patience will pay off big $$$

      Yes. If.

      Stick with SNG's, but play some MTT's for MTT training.
      Alot of final table experience to be made at 1t SNG's too.

      SNG is consistent little money. Mtt is very slow with huge losing streaks and variance. SO you choose if you want to win that Sunday Million giving you 1 in 7,000 chance to win, or win $20 in 1 out of 9 odds.

      cant you play both? I do. Playing lots of sngs is less swingy and profits can be used to play mtts. lots of sng play makes you more of a force in mtts I think. Always aware about position stack sizesnumber of players etc most of the field in mtts are ther for a gd time. opposition in sngs is harder than mtts.

      I don't think freerolls would be beneficial. They are very very loose. MTT aren't as loose, the only thing comparable is the Knockout format.

      All very good insight :) Thx

      @ arjun, You're right I am much more likely to win in a 9 man than an mtt with hundreds or even thousands of people.

      @vargan & gemgem, Yeh I could continue playing sng's as my main way of building my BR whilst also playing MTT's for experience and hope I win big! lol.

      @ rmb & danwong, freerolls can be fun to play, but so much different than $$ tournaments, the players ARE a lot looser and mostly don't understand the dynamics of poker, I notice whenever I play playchips it affects my game.

      Would I still need 100 buyin's for an mtt if it's not all I'm playing? I don't really want to play $2 tournies but wouldn't waste all my money buying into $10+ ones.

      i'd love getting my money in early in an MTT with 33 against AKo. 3.8% edge is massive so far from the real money.

      If you play on Full Tilt I'd recommend The Feguson. A $1 buy-in with no fee, $500 guranteed. Great tourney with rarely more than 1000 players. A bit loose but good practice compared to freerolls

      rigged obv. what you should do is pick your spots, bluff when you sense weakness and bully your opponents, and you'll go on to be the World Champion of Poker.
