To answer the OP...
If you are talking OPR then look at their distribution of finishes. It should be heavily skewed towards the end.
An ITM of 15% or greater and lots of final tables.
All dependant on field size of course how many FTs they'll make.
The money won can be very misleading with a lucky result skewing a bad player into profit or a good player being negative ROI% for a decent sample.
Speaking of which if they've got less than 50 recorded then it's very hard to tell much unless there's a really clear pattern and less than 100 is still not much evidence.
Generally though the OPR rankings for the year seem to do a pretty good job of sorting things out and taking account of all the variables. They keep exactly how they do it a secret but you won't find many donks near the top or good players near the bottom.
