I'm with Naj on this one.

I keep track of my buyins and winnings, then compare to my ring game sessions.

1 big thing with MTT play is that 1 big tournament win can bring you over 50 times your buyin. This is what I look for in payout schedules.

I have also switched from the 5 dollar million person tournament to the larger tourney's on all the big sites. Sunday 500 on UB, Saturday 250k's on Party or Stars, plus satellites to the big WPT events.

I try to make the $ in about 90% of my tourney's. I think the final table in 10% of such tournaments will prove to be very profitable.

Key thing being, for every 800$ prize I get in a 50$ entry I have plenty of flex room for buyins till I pull my next big payout.

Which MTT's are you playing BTW?
