Yesterday i played a powerfest tournament on Party Poker i entered we were just a little bit over 1,000 players but there was two ours late registration.

I had no luck and played around a few hours and when i got out there was 3,700 entrants.

I always try to enter before and i don't understand why peoples enter in a tournament after one hour of play at this time there are many players with a very good chips stack and i suppose it would be harder to make ITM.

I would appreciate comments from peoples who like to enter late. Confused Confused

The two hours late registration has pretty much stopped me playing MTT's on Party these days, because by the time late registration ends I am falling asleep.

Traditionally people enter late because it was just before the paid places and they were pretty much freerolling, I don't see how they get that value now with so many joining late.

With such registrations you can be in the money, with less effort and time.
If you are not aiming too high, it is a good way to be itm.

Since the blinds are pretty high at this point, joining the game you will go all in probably,
and of course you will have callers.
So with a couple of hits you can make a decent stack to continue even further in the tournament,
than minimum payout.
The main key here of course is luck Smile

Aye, that 2 hours late reg is a bit too much i think it should just be the 1 hour.
As Mober says you get near the end of reg and it's took you 2 hours to double your own stack then along come the late reg's all-in ,all-in and before you know it they're on double your stack in a matter of minutes Shock makes you sick so it does. Smile

Want a trick? Blink Register late only during 5 minutes break, wait until all table are full so when you register you are on a low stack table Blink

Well the starting stack is 10k (deep stack) so you don't have to play any hands early if you don't want to. But most tournament players understand that you have more chances to win if you can build a stack early, so that your tournament life never is on the line in a hand because you have most opponents covered.

I'm not a fan of 2 hours of late reg though, should be 1 hr max in my opinion... But there are ways to benefit from these late registerers Blink

Better luck next time!

Another reason : some player lazy when blind too small. This player is gambling type, try to pay attention when you see player who late registration, most of the time they will shove ! It's really bad for us who want play seriously.

The two hours late reg is a pain. However there is a balance to be struck. I like PokerKings tip for very late registration, as it is true that you do end up on a table of similar stack sizes made up generally of late registration players. It is still somewhat of a coin flip when you get a decent hand and a struggle to build up consistently to make FT. However, with such deep stacks available if you register before the tourney, there is some real value to be had by building a good stack from the start with some good patient play.

I agree though that one hour late registration would be far better.

well i can't speak for others, but i register late (on the last minutes or so... if i don't forget about tourney at all) especially on party mainly because there is a slow structure with decent starting stacks there and for the 1st hour or two there is too little action for my liking...

I usually always register 1 hr late into a 2hr late registration. I look at he blind levels and starting stacks and if I am about 15 to 20 bbs starting stack at that point I join. I find I honestly make the money almost all the time as you have the large stacks willing to risk a small portion of theirs just to eliminate you....I only play premium hands and 70 percent of the time I can take advantage of the bigger stacks.

... Big Smile< I've ALWAYS preferred to arrive to the ball 'fashiobaly late' Monsieur pinotte,....WITH the exception of knockout bounty tournies,...because you just DON'T want to miss out on any opportunities to 'clobber and collect'... Big Smile

... Big Smile< Other than that,...I generally late register ONE hour into a 2hr late reg.,...and other tournies where the late reg is one hour or less, I wait until the very last minute... Usually you come in mid pack half way to the money with a full stack....... eh marqis....? Smile Thumbs Up

... Big Smile< I see pinotte and a few of the boys at the $1.10 bounties over on PP quite regularly...! Me LIKEY the bounty tournies...!!! Dollar Cool Dollar Thumbs Up

Yes i have played a few $1.10 bounties but i have no luck i had a few bounties but did not made ITM.

I don't know what is happening i use to have some success on Party Poker but since a while i don't receive good cards very often and when i do i don't it.

It is the same in the Canadian freeeroll i make ITM once in a while but the most i got was $1.00. Confused Confused

So do I, so I am not sure that is cause of skill or luck. So that I start thinking to play small connector even crap card ( when I got good feeling or had luck ). Hope StheP and other read this and give suggestion !
