      hi guys as a live player looking to convert to online i would just like to know roughly what is a winrate that hu players look to achieve.

      Obviously 51 percent you are a winning player but a loser after rake.

      As a player looking to grind low stakes heads up sngs is 60 percent winrate achievable?

      Go to http://www.sharkscope.com -> Leaderboards, select HU and the stakes and click the players to see some ROI to figure out what results have the best in the game.

      You probably won't be 60% ITM but you'll come close.

      Hi Downsw1ngz,

      Your ITM and ROI rate mainly depend on your table selection. If you just play versus very bad players you can reach very high rates.

      I just checked the leaderboard on sharkscope. One of the best player on the $10+0.5 SNGs on PokerStars has a ROI of 47%, which means that he is ITM 77%.

      If you are ITM 60% you have a ROI of 14%.

      Best regards,
      Hannes
