Around what percentage of hands played is considered too much or too little, I usually hover 25-30%

Imo, it strongly depends on so many factors like, size of MTT, stage of the tournament, your stack, time of blind levels, ...

But around 20-25% should be ok based on what the stats of most players I meet on final tables have.
What are your other stats? What MTT's are we talking about?

I was just looking for a general idea, I understand the size and type all play factors in strategy.


thanks,

dunno. but i really believe there is no "correct" number - you can play 5-10 hands in whole tournament up to final table - double up on majority of them and just fold everything else...u can even continue in the same vein at the final table before shorthanded action kicks in...i think in the end it's the way u play your hands and not the percentage is what's most important

For me it depends on the structure of the tournament, that affects the ratio between early, middle and late stages. For me at early stages is around 10%-20%, middle stages 20%-25% and late stages around 30%.

So in regular tournament s if I get far enough I'm around 20% all and all. In Turbo tournaments (my favorite) I can get up to 25% and in hyper turbo easily to 30%

There are loads of opinions on this subject. however rather than the number of hands you play it is the amount of hands you win that is important. I once read that you can't expect to win anything if you are averaging less than 18% win rate, so have a look at your stats there. POCHUI also has a valid point but that takes one hell of a lot of luck to achieve, but the point that one win with a double up is far more productive than five blind steals ( at the same stage of the game).

Overall you need to balance off the percentage of hands played as against your percentage wins; the closer they are together, providing your pushing 20% wins, the better.
