A good ROI is one that's a: positive, and b: higher than the percentage in rake you're paying for any given game
If you're playing $1.20 SnGs, for example, the rake is 20%. So an ROI that's higher than 20% will be profitable in the long run. Just remember to include the rake in your calculations (ie: remember that you're investing $1.20 per game, not $1)
A 35% ITM rate is an OK start, but it really depends which positions you finish in most often. If most of them are third places then you're probably going slowly backwards. If most of them are first places, you're probably alright.
