So far in 2010 I have been playing mostly 45/90 mans and some larger mtts. I think so far this is what I am going to mostly keep playing. My results have been pretty good in the 45 mans and 90 mans but terrible in the mtts.
I think there are a couple of reasons for this. First, I play way more 45/90 mans so the variance evens out in fewer days. Second, every time the number of players in the field doubles the variance goes up also by about the same amount. Twice as many coinflips and 60/40 situations increases the chances of a bust out.
So I think 2000 45mans is a safe number of games to play and be close to what your true ROI will be in those games. So if my above comments are true that means 4000 90mans. My average field size in mtts is around 1000. So it will take a huge number of mtts played to get a true ROI in mtts. If you guys have any thoughts on this topic I would be interested in the comments.
One of the most common questions I get is my HUD for sale. It is available for $5 as of today. I know in the video I say it is $3. But fulltilts lowest transfer amount is $5. So that is the new price. If you want it email PimpinDonks@gmail.com
Also, I have come to the decision to not chat at the tables anymore unless I am only playing a couple of tables. When I am 16 tabling and chating I have had several misclicks that have cost me.
I don't do deals in the 45/90 mans anymore either. I prefer to play out the tournament. I have had several people ask to do deals heads up and I just want to get the word out that I prefer to play it out.
Sometimes I question myself as to why I even want to play mtts. I have figured out that with my ROI in the 45/90 mans of 30% so far this year. I could play 100 per day (which takes about 9 hours). For 300 days out of the year and make $450,000.
Here is the math if you want to double check. $50 avg buyin x .30 roi x 100 day x 300 days = $450,000.
It is pretty sick to think I can make that much just playing those games for 9 hours a day. Hopefully, I won't get to lazy and not hit 100 a day.
