Primarily focusing on getting the most bounty-money per hour, what would be the best time to register a progressive knockout tournament? The way I see it, there are a couple options.
Registering from the beginning will allow you to build a stack, resulting in you covering people for a chance of getting a bounty. However, in a deepstacked game people rarely bust and this method takes the most amount of time, so I don't think this is a good strategy.
Registering when the ante kicks in will have the advantage that stacks have fluctuated, resulting in you automatically covering a good part of the field. You will not be very shortstacked and therefore there is still time to build a stack and bust people simultaneously.
Max late reg is the last option. At this point the average stack will be a lot bigger than yours. Chances of you covering people are not very high. You will need to build a stack first before you can put yourself in a position to win some bounties, but you will often bust before you even get a chance. Therefore I don't think this strategy is good either.
In conclusion, I think that registering when the ante kicks in is the best strategy, but I am not sure if this is correct. Am I missing something? Please share your thoughts.
