I checked out my sharkscope graph for sit n gos at titan today and It tells me something I already know!! ( I'm a fish lol)

The ROI graph says 32.5 % and is a long line going straight up, how can this be when all I ever tend to do is lose?

What does it actually mean??

Thanks Roo

Hey,

That's kind of weird. But did you play different limits?

So the graph maybe just show one limit, where you run good, but overall you are down.

Do you have a link to or a screenshot of the statistic?

Best regards,
Hannes

the roi graph gives you information about roi on each limit.. you have -20% roi on <0,5\$ games and you have >30% roi on \$2 games..

oh thanks!! does that mean it is more profitable for me to play \$2 dollar games?? I think it was when I was playing the dirty dozen games and had a certain amount of luck!! I have also played loads of 8 cent games too as I'm not very good and thought they would be good practice!

Should I find the history of my games through sharkscope(im not a full member) and think about playing the games I seem to do better at?

It might and it might not, it depends on how many games you have played on 2\$ limit

Not many!! The reason I have been playing 8 cent games is I feel if I cant profit in those games I have no chance what so ever in the bigger stakes!!!

Is this good thinking???

I think so, but you need quite big sample size to know if you beat the limit, 1,000 games can give you an idea, tho if you have small ROI, it won't confirm that you beat the limit

If I had a bankroll of say One dollar and I played 8 cent games and after 100 gmes I had 2 cents left would I have made a sort of profit i.e I had played in many more games than I could have afforded too?? I would have played in 80 games while I only really had enough money for 12 games??

Is this crazy thinking

Well, you wouldn't have made any profit in your example. You would have had 0,98\$ losses If your bankroll would never grow, but neither you would lose it, then you would be breakeven. And to have profits, your bankroll has to grow

lol I was thinking the profit was the extra 70 games I played at 70x 8 cents = 5.60 dollars!!!!

"Amount Won" - "Amount invested" = "Profit"

For example: Game Buy-in is 1\$, first place gets 5\$. You play 10 of these games and:

a)get first once, then your profit is 5\$ - 10x1\$ = -5\$

b)get first three times, then profit = 3*5\$ -10x1\$ = 5\$

Hope this helps
