As someone who plays MTTs do you think if the MTTs were soft like in 2006 you could make GOOD money playing only 1 site that has medium volume and only 1 to 10$ mtts or is the variance too high even if its soft as hell (85% fish)?

Im asking because ive thought about taking a small break from cash for a week and grinding my site's mtts (which rarely go above 10 euro) but i wouldnt want to waste $ if theres no real money to be made.
I have never really played much MTTs so i dont know whats possible.

example right now theres a 3e rebuy 500 gtd it turend out to be 120 people prize pool is at 840 15 left i recognize 3 regs (1 of them is 18/6 so not really).

It's pretty much the average MTT. Low buyin but no regs. Could i average a few 20$/game playing nitty with a bit of run good?

edit: seems like they have 5.50e 18man SNGs running a lot too 85%+ fish

righty so i ve been playing fulltime for a fair bit and i ve finally decided that i m doing sth very wrong in my approach to my grind.

heres my results for mtts up to $44 buyin:



and heres my results for everything higher than that:



i am 100% sure that the bink in the $215 scoop was nothing but a sick heater. but i cant rely on sunrunning and making money in games that are obviously a lot tougher. what i will therefore do is mix up my grind. if i dont feel like i can bring my a game i will just swallow my pride and skip all the bigger buyins because i cant afford to play them not 100% focussed but when i do i will half my table count and play a doubled ABI taking advantage of every spot. that means if i m playing a big low session i ll cap it below $55s which might sound ridiculous but at this point in time i have to take measures and 55s have been costing me a bunch of money.

obv i ll be trying to play a s high as possible most days as i think my $/hour will be highest with the highest ABI but there are days where i ll just wanna grind out a few hrs and then having higher buyins in there is probly gonna be -EV

anywho month is back to zero with the losses this month as well as last month coming entirely from the highest buyins that i ve just been roboting. back at it tomorrow

cant rly tell you much that u dont knwo already. if u wanna dabble in donkaments the go ahead but if the max buyin is $10 and avg duration is 2hrs and u get medium volume in in fishy games thatd probly end up being 30 mtts/day at ABi of 4 at roi of 75% ind sth like a 8hr session. do the math if thats rly worth it for you, i doubt it
