Good advice all around but it seems I'll never really know because I just can't put in an ample number of tourneys for a true ROI. I thought 450+ would be enough but I guess I'm way off. Wish I could just take three months off and play every night to see where I'm at from a standpoint of fatigue because I'm sure that's factors into it as well.
see that's the thing. 1k tournaments is nothing, you could actually end up making absolutely no money at all during that size sample.
Best thing i can say is go to a tracking site, sharkscope
.com and look up the biggest winning MTT players and really have a look at their graphs to see how big the swings can be.
Yes fatigue is a huge factor. But it's not really fatigue as much as it is keeping your game on a very good level over many, many hours played. Setting volume goals to improve productivity is really important and controlling tilt levels becomes way more important also, especially when you hit an inevitable downswing.
