Default (MTT noob)Which tournaments to practise for big Sunday tournaments?

I am a winning cash game player at NL200-600 and I should probably have a positive expectation at the big sunday tournaments which would make for a nice change of scenery,too.
As I have little MTT experience I would like to play some smaller ones first to get a hang of things. FWIW I have read TPFAH,HOH1+2 and Championship PL&NLHE.

Can you recommend MTTs in the small buy-in range ($20-$50) that are a good place to get some experience?

Thanks. Your comments are appreciated.

lots of stars dailys around that range, including 3r and 5r, all good practice for working through big tournaments changing gears, adjusting to different stages/players. Maybe a few 45s/90s to get used to a bit of bubble play(abusing it) and closing out tournaments would be beneficial too.

Also read the mmt anthology of wisdom, better than any book you can buy. Bond also done a simply mtt cliffs notes stlye series and i'm sure you are already a more than competent player but just some concise, easy to read mtt stuff there.

best of luck.

The Daily 50 Grand would be a good one on either Stars or FTP. The 3r,5r would be great training for a large field.

I suppose the rebuys will be good for field size and also for deep stack play like you are likely to see in the big MTTs.

Also, I was being sarcastic in the last post. You should rip all the pages out of that book except cloutier's stories in the back. Then burn them.

Anthology is your best bet for quick training. HOH's v. I-III obv.

Good luck.

PS - If you are a 6-max cash game player, definitely play 6-max events. You will pwn.

If you're winning at that level why in the hell would you want to play tourneys? If you ask me it'll just screw you up... but I only play for peanuts in comparison so what do I know.

Thanks for all the replies so far.

Several reasons:
1) I think it is more likely that I win money than that I lose money (in the long run).
2) Tournaments are fun to play (up to that point in time when something really frustrating happens).
3) There is the possibility of a big score.
4) It is a change of pace from the usual cash game grind.
5) It is always good to broaden your horizon and learn new skills.

50 50 is closest...play in lower buy in tourneys is completely different and will not do much to prepare for higher buy in style...
