About the same?

To answer your original question, my ITM for 66 MTTs (all that I've tracked) is just over 18%.
Hi Chuck, thanks for that. So it is roughly the same as me?
I accept the ROI is a good way, I do track that also, but as you know I am still finding my feet and messing around with MTT, SNG`g, cash. I am going to fly in the face of what a lot of ppl say here, but I think you would be better specializing in one area, for example MTT. The reason I say this is because I feel you need a different strategy and, more importantly, mentality
to play either MTT, SNG`s or cash games.
The problem I find with MTT like all of us is the time factor. I am, however, going to play only MTT until the end of the year and see what happens. I also feel that using ROI would not be a good way to track your return on MTT. I feel, playing MTT, you are looking for that big hit every now and then. If you used only ROI to track your progress on MTT you could give up after a month or two!!!
