Valuable tips for MTT grinders

Of course, finishing at the top place of any MTT takes much time, effort, skill, and luck. Still, you can maximize your chances by following several simple tips.

  1. Don’t participate in events that are not affordable according to your bankroll management strategy. Also, have in mind possible rebuys and add-ons.
  2. Thoroughly plan your schedule beforehand (a complete list of events is available here).
  3. Check finished events similar to those you will play (in terms of buy-in, format, etc.). It can help figure out how much time would be needed for a deep run and possible winnings.
  4. Have enough rest and eat - it would be almost impossible to show your top game when tired or hungry.

And who knows, maybe you would be the next big winner.
