      Hi all. I'm a reg in 26$ 45man sit'n'goes and do pretty well - i'm up about 2k for 300 games.

      But when it comes to MTTs, i feel like i dont know what i'm doing. I'm down about $2500 for 102mtts. I've not made a single final table. I've cashed in 10 of them (small, meaningless cashes i might add).

      What is a good strategy for playing MTTs?

      How tight should you be in early/mid stages? is there ever a good time to play KQ/AQ/AJ early pos? Is there ever a good time to call an early/mid pos raise with A10? When should i start thinking about blind steals?

      Does anyone have enough pearls of wisdom to get me to my first MTT final table? Maybe even turn me in a winning MTT player?

      In MTTs I feel early game is largely a wait for the gamblers to knock themselves out. My early position range would be about JJ+,AQs+,AKo (assuming you're talking about 9 seated tables). I spend most of my time replaying hands between other people at my table and picking up any significant notes I can about their opening ranges, and also any blunders they seem prone to making postflop.

      I find the game doesnt really start for me until about 1/4 or even 1/3 of the field have been knocked out, then again I play $1 and $2 MTTs so my advice might be totally worthless. :]
