I'm in no position to be giving you any advice though but I just wanted to say good job! And also to ask how your tracking your bovada stats? I'm on the old columns and tally mark system myself.. I know.. I'm a darn caveman...
yes, when I make the money I am rarely squeaking into the money. I think what this would mean is that I'm taking considerable risks on the bubble, to "abuse" the bubble mentality and build a stack for first place. Since my 2 highest finishes are 1st and 4th. I don't know if that is ideal play or not, but I would say that it is what I usually attempt to achieve (depending on the exact stack distributions of course and whether or not a NIT is in the BB).
I track my Bovada stats very tediously "by hand" in an online free poker database called pokerdominator.com So, at the end of each session, I pull up my account information on Bovada and it tells
me how much money went out, how much came back for each game. Bovada will give you this info for 30 days, but I usually do it once per day that I play so that the work isn't overwhelming. I also track all my live play in this online database, and use my HUD to track all of my other online play.

to analyse the numbers, focus more on distribution of finishes more than anything. However here your first place is higher than anything, so just play more volume and keep playing the same game for now, if it ain't broke don't fix it
it should be possible to get over 10% ROI on carbon, there's (i assume) not many good players so 10-15% Is totally achievable.
because of the low sample size it looks like a heater, or because the ROI is higher than a typical winning player...or both?

it would be interesting to see the breakout between super turbo, turbo, and reg
ie if your super turbo numbers are anywhere close to your mean results you should play more of them
I considered breaking the numbers down by buy in, and by game type but then the sample sizes would get really small. some would be as low as 72 games and the highest would be 275 games. My rationale in including the stats all together is that I'm employing the same basic strategy in all these games (I didn't include the hyper turbos for example since those are 6 player and are a push/fold game which is significantly different strategy).
But, it's easy enough to do....I have all the data, so I can put it on here in a bit. Just please realize that I DO know that the sample sizes are quite small.
