hi guys... i have one question for u ... please write me you profitability of playing SNG ... my calculations are : (games x buy in)x(ROI/100)=

my (679X5,5)x0.23=858\$ (for 5,5\$ sng)
(164x11)x(-0.034)= -61,33\$ (for 11\$ sng)
profit 796\$

profit/number of games = profit per game

796/858=0,92\$ per game... im playin sesion of 4...one session takes maybe 1hour....

my profit per hour is 3,8\$ ... dolar is very low today=it suck.

most of time i was just building my BR but i seriously thinking to stop playing SNG coz low profitability (unable to beat 11\$ sng on mansion coz of dumbiest players in the world)maybe in 22\$ it will be better

pls write my your calculations (using stat by sharkcope or pt3 or whatever) glad to see profitability of higher sng stakes

Playing 6\$ games, about 1\$/game, after only 30 or so at 16\$, about \$2.5/game. All in all, ROI swings between 15-25%

I've worked out per 100 hands, if I were playing limits within BRM - it would be equivalent to around 12BB/100 - I think I can improve a fair bit still.

After sample of 30 SNgs I dont think you can do any conclusions mate

Sorry, I meant that only 30 games at the 16\$ level (now about 70)
About 250 total games including 6max 6\$, 9max 6\$ and a few210FPP tourneys for this month that I decided to start playing SnG's seriously using BRM. ROI is 17%. Is it enough to draw any conclusions?

I'm more a cash game player, but I still play sitngos from time to time. I have played 1000 of them on the last 10 month, and my figures are very similar to yours: I am also stuck at the 10\$ level where my ROI is desperately swinging around 0% whereas it is a decent 20% at the lower levels. And I've never ever took so many bad beats (even when I was playing the 1\$ tourneys!!)... But it should turn to my advantage sooner or later...
