      Even though, I generally don't play MTT's, I think ihufa is not kidding here.
      Tourneys with thousands of people have a huge variance, so your ROI will drastically change with making the top 3.

      200 is waaaay too little. Not really worth thinking about even if you were talking about 45-man tourneys.

      200 not enough even for 9-max no-turbo.

      it`s strongly depend from field size.

      for 45-man maybe (maybe!) 3000-5000 is enough

      Hello,

      good question.
      In my opinion, You probably need 2000+ to start considering it.

      but keep an eye on how often you make the money.
      Lets say you make the money 9% of the time and then after 1500 tournaments you got 50% R.O.I chances are you got super lucky in a few tournaments. But if you make the money 18% of the time and your r.o.i is 30+% then you are likely playing a very solid game.

      good luck at the tables

      Making deeper runs less often >>>> Mincashing 18%
      So I would disagree with all of what you said.

      I agree with metza,

      mincashing isn't what you should be looking for. A very high ITM% will often lead to very little ROI. Furthermore it indicates some leaks in bubble and late game play.

      You can make first assumptions on being a winning player or not after 1k games. To get a realistic ROI you need way more.

      Again: Please don't bump all these old threads just because you want some postings. There is no point in answering threads that were dead for years.
