It helps to have a HUD again I would expect to min cash over 50-60% of the time
coming in the top 2 three times in 50 attempts as a good record for most.
20-25 would be excellent
The were one of the most profitable games pre-black friday, nowadays they are not so beatable. Yes they still are profitable, but more and more regs are playing them, which makes it hard, and the fish are not playing them as often as they are going to the hyper turbo formats more often.

Anybody have any experiences with these tourneys or had a decent ROI playing them?
Ya it's great when you are winning, but don't automatically assume you are a genius, it takes literally thousands of games just to give you a ballpark of if you can beat these games or not. in peak hours, you should expect there to be 30-60 regs in these games minimum, which makes late game really difficult. you have to take really thin shoving spots, getting ITM with a shortstack is an absolute waste of time in these things, you need to gogogogo to get a big stack to abuse the final table bubble, and of course, abuse the final table payout jumps, which can be also hard to do these days.
Cotto- what do you mean? you think you can cash in these games 60% of the time?
