So...you think that player you looked up on OPR is a DONK cause his ROI in -74%?????
Do you think because a player has a big -ROI he can't play
One big thing to take into account is that both OPR and PokerDB (the major ROI reporting sites for MTTS) really have ZERO idea what your ROI is if you play rebuys (because they assign an average rebuy to your buyins since they can not find your true amount of rebuys).
In case you dont think it makes a big deal...it does, even for a couple MTTs. I will let you do the math yourself. Just play a weeks worth of rebuys, keep track of your actual rebuys and match it to PokerDB figures (or do it for a month and compare it to OPR).
Now on the unscientific front...I was just curious how one of the best players in the world measured up on PokerStars
Daniel Negreanu must be a real donk with a 120 day ROI of -74% and a Full Tracking ROI of -8%
I want to to be a DONK like him
The lesson to take away....Use these tools to help in decision making, but in no way believe reported ROI is gospel in online poker
