I'd rather play a 20 multitable tournament to a 10 player sit n go. You're pretty much playing the same strategy as a ten player, only the prize money is a little more worth the extra half hour of your time you invest. I usually go in with the mentality to double my chip stack before the final table begins. If you start at the final table with a healthy chip stack, you can wait for the table to lessen in size before playing alot of hands, and still buy the occasional pot using muscle. My record in these tourneys is way better than in the 10 player ones, aswell as the 30 player ones. I see it as I put 10 bucks into an hour and try and win $100 or so, and I only have to come top 5, not top 3. Its better odds of winning and better return on myself as a time resource(that doesn't really make sense?!?)
I talk so much everyone stopped listening a long time ago

somehow it also seems easier to get to the top4 of 20 people than to top2 of ten people... dont know why...

Heck with finishing 4th or 2nd. I find I win 2 out of 3 single table tournys to about 1 out of 10 small MTT. Yeah the money is better on the larger MTT's but the law of averages wins out for me.
-------------------------------------------------------------------- I hope to break even this week. I need the money.

Depends on buyin but generally I play tight and aggressive at the beginning, after 2 levels a little bit semi-loose. GL AT THE TABLE
Limit is a science, No-Limit is an art.

It seems to me that ROI is more important than how often you place. In this regard, MTTs are subject to much more variance, while a decent SNG player at any given level will run at least a 30% ROI more steadily.

I think that the return on a 10 table is better than on a 20 as the prize money is split between only 3 rather than 5.

I try and lose all my chips well before the pay out structure, that way it doesnt matter whether its a 10 or 20 player game and you wont get dissapointed going out "just before" the money.

i like the smaller tourneys. even though the prize pool is much smaller, you usually have a better chance of winning in my opinion
those who never try, never succeed
