Should you use max time with chip lead in MTT

It is frustrating when people do it but is it good strategy to take the maximum time when you have a lot of chips in a MTT?

Re: Should you use max time with chip lead in MTT

Hypothetical:

You are playing HU vs an opponent who open shoves every hand. Your stack is 10,000 his stack is 100. Would you rather the blinds be .5/1, 5/10, or 50/100? Would you rather play him for 10 hands or 100?

Now think how this situation applies to the MTT situation you asked about.

Should we stall with the chiplead? No. Hell No. Are you ****ing kidding me? NOOOOOO.

Ok. You shouldn't as chip leader but what about if you just have average or above average chips?
Or better question, should you ever stall?

There is no good reason to stall, except maybe the bubble of a satellite with an extremely short stack.

imo stalling is actually +ev pretty often in short stack/bubble situations, though its not +ev enough for me to be a ***** nearly as often

Re: Should you use max time with chip lead in MTT

believe me when I say you should listen to me more then other people here....

Yes you should stall at any time you are in the top 15 % of chips in a tournament. Max time every decision, there's nothing they can do about it and you're actually just burning money if you don't, so if you care about the $$ you're playing for, you should always be doing this unless you're just playing for fun and the money is meaningless to you

Re: Should you use max time with chip lead in MTT

simple logic - if u stall u get less hands and minimize possibility to get good hand, bust some1 and raise ur stacksize.

Re: Should you use max time with chip lead in MTT

Wouldn't a good player, especially a good player with a commanding stack, want to play more hands to maximize his edge rather than stall to preserve his chips?
