N1! You lasted about 2 minutes longer than I did

I paid for my entry, but got the same result as you after running card dead for 300 hands!

Dear Roland GTX,

You finished the tournament in 2274th place. A USD 136.04 award has been credited to your Real Money account.


What did you think about the 180 minute Late Registration period? We were nearly itm by that time!

Congrats on the cash too Roland! I wasn't watching this specific tourney, but tourneys where they are basically at ITM at the end of late reg... was something that I was watching for a bit in the couple weeks before black friday. I know that I intentionally late reg'd for a couple of $1.10 mtt's that were in the same situation but with a 60 min late reg. If I saw one that was like that, I'd reg with about 3 min to go until they closed... sat for 5-10 min until I got ITM, then started playing to try to move up the pay ladder. It's very, very rare that you can get a late run by doing something like this, but if for just signing up and sitting for a few min, I can get a 50% ROI for a tourney... I'll take it.

If I'm to register late, I will first look at the odds. In other words, if it pays 50 players and there are 200 left, my odds are 1 in 4, it does look good. But then I look at the structure, if there at 1,000 BB and you start with 1,500 chips, then forget about it. Another thing I'll look at, is the average chip stack, I will not joined if the average stack is 80% more than the starting stack. (starting stack 3,000, average stack needs to be less than 5,400). I also look at what position I would be in by joining late, I need to be in the top 70% of the remaining players. Now of course, this needs to be a regular game, not a turbo.

Overall, there's a lot of criterias I need to take in consideration before jumping late into a game and I rarely do join late, but it happens.
