      Hey mates,

      Im currently grinding the 18, 45 and 180Man. I already have a steady up line on the 18's, a good line upward on the 45's, but the 180Man i dont even know if im a winning player. Here's my graph:



      BI: $2,20 tourney, Profit: $183,24 ROI: 18,5%

      Should I wait till I have like 2k sng to make ANY conclusions?

      I really dont wanna grind these $2,20 anymore. I'm starting with the $12, witch is the next level. I do have the bank to play these comfortably, but i still will lose way too much money if I found out to be a loosing player :f_cry:

      MTT 45+ are very swingy. So yes a 2k sample would be more appropraite.

      Yeah, a big sample is needed to see anything for certain... But if you have the BR for the $12s, play the $12s... I don`t see the point in super-grinding a limit you are over-rolled for "just to see if you are beating it"... that's what BRM is for... move up when you can, move down if you have to, and at some point in the future you can say you have beaten any level you don't have to return to :f_p:

      For 180 handed, I would say about 5000. And you are still +- $5000 (approx for $11+1)
