or he's played like 10 games... lol. No one can sustain a 70% win ratio in these things, it's basically impossible.
To be considered doing really well in these games something around 38-40% Win % would be considered crushing it over the long term.
That 33.3% number is a little flawed because of the skill element and the rake. It's also flawed because the payout amounts vary. so you don't really win 1/3 of the time, if you do you are losing money playing these. You need to be at least 36% win % to be breaking even, this number of course varies with the lower rake in the higher games, and the $5 massive jackpot games that used to run, which lower the amount of 4x and 6x + games to pay for the bigger jackpot. The games would be impossible to beat if they only ran the 2x multiplyers, it simply doesnt pay out enough and no one has that much of a skill edge to make any real profit in the 2x games. But the amount of 4x 6x etc makes up for it. So realistically you will want to have a better win % in the higher multiplyers and accept a lower one for the 2x games. Basically the idea is you want the 2x games over as fast as possible so you can load another game with a chance at a higher multiplyer, conversely you want to really avoid big all in pots in the higher multiplyer games, putting more focus on them so you can have as many wins as possible in those games.
