      Yeah well, title really says everything, but I say it again anyway:

      How many SnGs do I need to play to get a winrate that is actually telling the truth and what is a good ROI percentage...

      Thanks!

      Some say 1000, some say 10000.

      Some say 5%, some say 10%

      from the german forum:

      100 games: ~23%
      300 games: ~40%
      1000 games: ~66%
      2000 games: ~82%

      it says that if you play 2000 games there is a 82% chance that your current roi is your "true roi". most likely you will never have enogh games to really figure out your true roi. the games/opponents are getting tougher and your own skill is evaluating as well...

      it´s hard to say what a "good roi" is. it depends on a lot of factors:
      - which limits do you play (higher limits -> better opponents -> lower roi)
      - do you play normal speed sngs, turbos, superturbos (faster structure -> less time to wait for good spots -> lower roi)
      - how many tables do you play at a time

      I´m playing 5$ 10 people SnGs, normally just regular tables but when there is not enough traffic in them I sometimes ad one or two speed tables..

      Are these DON's? If they are then a solid ROI is around 5% I believe.
