      Are 6max turbos less varianced than 9max turbos?
      What swings can you expect( size and frequency) at 6max turbos( 1.5k starting stack, 5 min level blinds like stars) at let's say 10$ limit?

      I'm guessing you should have a smaller roi in 6max than 9max..

      Yes the variance is a bit smaller.
      The ROI is a bit bigger on 6max than 9-10 max, since u have to make more decisions.
      Calculated for a ROI of 5%

      If u have a lower ROI the variance gets bigger.

      1000 games --- A drop of 32 buy-ins on average is expected
      5000 games --- A drop of 60 buy-ins on average is expected
      10000 games --- A drop of 69 buy-ins on average is expected
      50000 games --- A drop of 103 buy-ins on average is expected

      If U have a lower ROI the variance get's a lot bigger.
