      Can't decide whether this is a big heater followed by being a losing player, or a downswing?
      This is from 12-tabling $3.40 turbo SnGs on Pokerstars.
      Just variance? Too small a sample size?

      sample size too small could be a downswing could be a slow painful death.

      That's reassuring. How big a sample size do you reckon I need?

      I saw a post on 2+2 how someone lost money even in a 1k sng sample size.. while he was a winning player. 500 sng's isn't that much if your 12 tabling and they are turbo's. 1k would be a good indication or 2k would be even better.

      2000 tourneys on a given limit to determine the real RoI. More would be better, of course!

      ur running at 7% over that sample.

      obviously you went on a huge heater and now u are just reverting back to the mean.

      be happy with your awesome roi. nh wp
