      I recently moved to a new site and had a job finding out who the good regs are. However, after reviewing some of the games, I came across some questionable plays. So I sharscoped them again, but filtered it for stakes and speed and found out that that some of the people who I initially thought were good sucked at turbos. For example, this guys stats are:


      Since I'm only playing turbos, can I mark him as a "breakeven reg", or should I still leave him as a "decent reg"?

      Hi, man!

      I will filter stats for stakes/type of SnG/last 6 months usually. If I don't get enough data than I try to get a general impression on that player based on overall SnG stats- winning/loosing player. I think that's a very solid point to begin with. However, 2k is not big enough sample, even on stars where blind level/pay out structure is super balanced.

      If he's making bad plays, I will just mark his as a bad reg. One bad play doesn't make him bad though, we all make mistakes. So when you get the impression based on both reads and stats(sharkscope/HUD), you will have the answer.


      I usually mark BE regs when they are from -1% to + 2%. Ok regs +3-5%. Decent regs +5-8%, very good regs- +7-8%+. These are all for midstakes on stars. +5% ROI is impossible f.e. on Ongame's turbo 10-player midstakes SnGs.

      Hi, lycoreus!


      Games are very reg-fested + blinds increase every 3 minutes. Almost like a super turbo. Hard to gain a big edge. I don't think I've ever seen a reg having over + 1-3% ROI on the midstakes over a decent sample for the last 6 months.

      Hi again!

      Unfortunately, due to legal restrictions in my country, I am not allowed to play on party. So I can't give you the best answer possible. I, however, forwarded your question to the Party Poker thread and you can check what the answer is by clicking here : Click

      If you want some additinal assistance, I will also suggest that you check in here: Click and I am pretty sure our specialists will give you a full well-defined answer.

      Also, don't get me wrong- if you register to Betfred via our site, you will be getting some very solid rakeback thanks to our montly rake races and betfair's vip system. So no matter that higher ROI is hard to be made, winnings postrakeb will be still very solid even by finishing BE or so.


      Cheers!

      No worries, man : )

      I also saw that you started posting hands in the evaluation forum. That's the way to go! Do it every time you are uncertain what to do and I am sure that it will help your game a lot.

      I said it several times already, but I really wanna stress on it - this week you get a chance to get a free one hour coaching by one of our top coaches/hand judges- Chenny888 by simply posting a hand in the evaluation forum. The more hands, the better chance. Good luck.

      Cheers!

      Same on iPoker. I think I saw like 2 winning regs altogether and I play a lot. They are usually around -6% to 0%.

      But does that mean they are all good regs or are they all bad regs?

      I just got called by break even reg with J9 for 9 bbs in bvb battle. But I guess that's the standard there.

      @ Nomboo, yup- they can be still winning if they get a good rakeb. Roughly, 70% rakeb f.e. give you about +7% ROI if you are running BE. So being minus 6%, will still add up to a small + winnings if you get highish rakeb. Which is definitely possible on the midstakes + on betfair if you are tracked to ps f.e.
