I started to play 45/180 $12 Turbo last month...

13 tabling

So far very good

4x times this month swing down over $500 (over 40BI).

You have to have at minimum 130 BI for 45 handed,

And 200+ BI for 90/180 handed...

To be very effective expect that you have to play at minimum 3h sessions.

You may need a lot of tourneys to show some profit as swing can be large.

Created some excel, that generates results (30% ROI for 45 handed, 50% for 180 handed assumption)... on 5000 games you can see downswing of size for

45 handed up to 100 BI

180 handed even over 200 BI.

Mixing 45+180 or 45+90 handed like 80%+20% will reduce overall variance (linear combination of normal distributions (similar like adding stocks to your bond portfolio, reduces overall variance)).

The material I have read and like very much is Kill Everyone... recommend that.

That's my five cents...
