      Hello! I tend to have big swings in micro mtts on stars so decided to play with conservative brm. (about 500 buy ins)

      But what kind of brm should i use when i play a satellite that will end when the target mtts is in late registration? (cant unregister anymore?)

      Like taking a "shot" on sunday and playing a couple satellites to Sunday Warm up..

      I don't think it is wrong to take shots through sats ones in a while which are out of your limits. Although if these tournaments would be a large percentage of your bankroll it proably wiser to go with the sats. where you still can unreg and just take the money.

      Well - in general your bankroll should be at least 200 times the buyin amount. If you play Pokerstars only I recommend 400 times the buyin. It doesn't matter if you invest this money into a satellite or a standard tourney.

      If you have the choice, I would rather invest it into a tournament that suits your BRM, instead of playing some very expensive tournament (where you qualified through a sat) where you have a way smaller edge as well as possible problems in the late game (scared of money effect etc).

      Regards,

      think it is better to avoid those . like Asaban said your edge is mostlikely pretty small in those and if it the buy-in is a large part of your bankroll being able to unreg will be pretty good for you already
