      I have about 16.3K tourney hands, primarily STT but some Daily Dollar MTT. I am noticing a pattern of being in the plus in terms of bb/100 at some limits and being in the minuts at other limits. Is my sample size large enough to draw any conclusions? (I would post the stats here except that my Excel is misbehaving.)

      small sample size, i mean on some blind levels you probably have like 1k hands only.

      I don't think it means anything in STTs or MTTs... I have 61 bb/100 after 11k hands at t20 lol. :D

      Okay, thanks. What's a big enough sample size of STT hands to draw conclusions from?

      You shouldn't draw any conclusions from only bb/100 cause chip value isn't directly related to $, especially at higher blinds. I bet you know that due to risk aversion situations occur where you know you're like 60% ahead but still you need to fold. Thus you lose significant amount of chips but gain $ equity.

      Maybe you could in very early levels where risk aversion is at its lowest. But I don't know what's a good sample, maybe 50k 100k? Cash players should know. :)
