  • Any advantage in starting Sunday million late?

    There is a 2 hr window for late registration and 15 min blinds, Is there any advantage to starting an hour later? Or do you always start a tourney at the beginning and grind it out? I wonder today with so many entrants that there will be some crazy play early, especially with those 1000 seats from the $11 sat. get put in, do those people play loose because it only cost them 11 bucks, they are coming off a turbo into a 15 min blind structure tourney, they will be behind most stacks because of their late entry and might wanna play catch up so play loose and double up or go home strategy? Lot of factors to think of today, just wanted to know what your guys thoughts were.

    Yes and NO

    Just depends on your style of play and Game Plan

    as for players playing loose who come from the $11 sat one thing to think about is that around 75% of the field got in thru Sats

    Also do not sell TURBO Players Short there is alot of Awesome players who play Mainly Turbos but still have the Skills to play Long Structure Events

    As its much easier to go from turbos to Deep Structures then it is to go from Deep to Turbos

    I see alot of people say Turbos are Bingo and those people just have No Clue there is alot of Strat that goes in to being a Turbo Player

      Fold everything for the first hour unless its checked to your bb

      Then see how many players are out

        Well here's my 2 cents. Depends on your style of play. I'm a fairly tight player. I don't like the rounds that have small blinds because your standard 3x, 4x, 5x factors don't have much weight behind them. So, I like coming in late. Cash Mtt's I don't play like I play pso skill so, I play pretty much regular poker, but like the late start due to the reduction in field size. If you get to a point where I'm not very good stack wise, but, I think I can stall to the money. I go full PSO Skill on them. If I'm good in chips, I'll slow down for one round or two, to make ITM.

        Also of the opinion, that if you are not a run and shoot type of player. Meaning a good LAG player ( they do exist ) The early doubles and or triple ups don't amount to a hill of beans, unless you can utilize those chips to keep the pressure on at all times. As I don't play LAG well, or TAG well, I take all the advantages that I can. IMO -shark

          For me the choice would be to sit out or sit in and fold every hand but AK and QQ+. If I had $215 invested I'd rather sit in and take advantage of any opportunities that I might get.

            If you consider yourself better than most of the field,then late registering is not a bad idea.
            You have to have a great post flop game though.
