I play mostly MTT's
But my bankroll has suffered on some reckless play/TILT..
I play many Freerolls
and 6/10 I am in the Top 10% Finish.
I just finished a 10,000 Player freeroll and finished 1499 (Top 14%)
If that were a Higher Level buy-in and a 15% finish is usually the bubble.
Or just out of it!
When I was playing MTT's at low/micro levels the bad play factor is there.
Hence the reason going on tilt due to bad beats players calling 4xBB bets with 6-4s and hitting a set of 6's..
But aside from that if you are playing in Tournaments that have around 1500-2500 entrants, Aim for a Top 10% finish and you will usually double-up your buy-in.
As far as winning % Go I would say depending on your Avg. Buy-In.
# of MTT's x $ value divide by Expected Win Ratio
Say 10 MTT's @ $5.50 per = $55.00 if you expect to Cash in 7/10 then you have 70% win ratio.
ITM in a $5.50 MTT is usually around $9.30 (depending on # of entrants)
so if your goal is to double-up at least then that is the base minimum rate to draw the relative comparison.
If there are 1250 Entrants then the target of Top 10% is usually a double-up. Top 1% or 12th place is around 7x ROI.
And these take around 5-6 hours to complete.
So to win 1 MTT at this example out 10 = Top Prize of $1320. roughly
if you cash in 6 and win one outright then you average All your winnings, $30 + $1320 = $1350 - $55.00 = $1290 (+) in 60 hours. 709.5% ROI
Now Winning % is a variable based on how much you Cash, when you Cash, so you can see a winning % is relative.
and if you want to take your winnings of an average out of 10 - $5.50 MTT's Take your total winnings after 10 MTT's and divide by the Total Profit. Then you average $129.00 Profit / 10 Tournaments.
So if you think you are wasting your time then stay with what pays best ROI / per Buy-in, staying within a BR management strategy.
Like I said MTT's and going deep = Bigger $ out, but the time factor.
60=$1290 vs. 60 hrs @ ring game...hmmm
Ferguson Played S&G's and MTT's to build his BR then he went to the Low limit ring games when his BR permitted his Buy-In.
~Time factor it's your Call!~
