      Hi,

      pretty new to this and I wonder if you can comment on my stats so far? What I could expect in the future? And any other stats you think I should be keeping?

      I play $1 (Occasionally $2) 30 player SNG's. I appreciate it is only a small sample (93), but I only started recording final position a while back.

      Played 93
      Won 6 (6.5%)
      1st or 2nd 12 (13%)
      ITM (1-5) 24 (26%)
      Bubble (6-8) 12 (13%)
      ROI 42%

      Cheers

      Hello,

      Nothing much to comment, nice run. Samplesize is way toooooooooo small for any kind of evaluation, keep going like that and you will earn much profit. But don't get tilted when you get like 500 next games break-even or even negative profit.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      Thanks for the comment and I appreciate it is a very small sample!!!

      I took advice from these forums about playing more aggressively (I was playing very tight limping ITM short stacked). That has certainly helped me increase my 1 and 2 place positions and probably also accounts for the high percentage of times I bust on the bubble.

      A few weeks ago I played 8 SNG's in a session - finished - 4,5,5,6,6,7,12,18 - playing tight and didn't even break even.

      This morning I played 4 finishing - 2, 12, 16, 27 and ROI was 42%

      Cheers

      Make sure you post hands for evaluation, in my experience this is one of the quickest ways to improve your game.

      Negative profit... That's a nice euphemism for a loss.

      By the way, what is considered a sufficient sample size before you can make a proper judgement?

      1000 tourneys is a good rule, I would say.
      On other stats maybe 100k hands? (not sure about that one though)

      Ok, and what's a healthy ROI after a 1000 sngs?

      EDIT:

      Just realised these are 30 player SnGs!

      you can probably sustain 15%~ in the long run but im really not an expert on these games so i could be wrong

      Anything positive is better than 85% of all players online (don't know if that number is correct but it should be close). So I would be happy with anything positive after 1000 games then you will improve more and more and it will get higher and higher and you will get more profit.
      Of course maybe you won't be happy with 1% ROI but I would be very happy with anything above 5% ROI.

      Cheers for the thoughts guys....

      When I started out I was looking (imagining) a 10% ROI over time, and as the sample is so small I guess that I am ahead of the game at the moment.

      Cheers
