re: Poker & How often are you in the money in MTTs ?
At the moment I'm only playing the various freerolls on 888
, and almost exclusively on the weekends, and looking over my stats I've been making it into the money about 2 out of 3 times since I've been keeping track starting April 13.
It sounds high, but these freerolls are mostly paying out better that 33% of the players registered.
For example I played 2 games this morning (I went 2/2) and they paid out 4500 out of 11442 and 1099 out of 3814.
My whole style of play is to make it ITM and then take it from there. In these you can usually make it just by merely doubling up (or even less. the 2nd game I'm sure some of the sitters who never played a hand made it ITM), and that is incredibly easy given how most people play them. I have no qualms about open shoving AA or KK since I get called at least 90% of the time (half the time by multiple players).
