This is a discussion on How often do you make a final table? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; I found lately its been extremely hard to make final table been more thsn 100 torneys played since i last saw a final table
That obviously depends on the field size. In a 9-max 18-man SnG an average player will make the final table 50% of the time and a solid winner maybe 52-55% of the time. In a 9-man 900 player MTT an average player will make the final table 1% of the time and a solid winner maybe 1,2-1,3% of the time. So if you mainly play large field MTTs with 1.000 or more participants, then this is, what you signed up for. Final table appearances are going to be rare, and as a result of this downswings can be huge and last for 1.000`th of tournaments.
Its quite hard a big challenge to make it to the final table, many bad beats or coin flips it seems when your getting near the bubble or final table with everyone holding almost a big stack that can easy knock you out.
Like fundiver999 mentions, it all depends on the tournament size as well as when you join the event (either at the start or as a late registration). Most of my events are MTTs with anywhere from 30-1000 players. If I get a FT every once and awhile, I feel good about my play for the most part.
I believe my final table ratio is 3 for every 100 tournaments played, so I have a lot to evolve, lately I have earned more in sports betting, some member out there also likes to bet on sports, a hug to everyone, kindly bioman
Yes, the final table is rare-it means that we still do not have enough experience and there is something to strive for.Do not stop on the way and go through obstacles more boldly.I think that everything will get better and maybe soon you will even win some tournament!
it depends lately if i get a FT its from a horse or 8-game hi/lo tournament since it field is smaller lets say a normal 5.50 holdem game has 2k+ players its hard but with the other games its 200-400 players and its much easier for me to get that FT and happens more when i play those type of games instead of holdem.
It depends on the kind of the tournament and on my gameplay.
For example, in the 2.5 usd sit & go i used to play i would be in the money bubble one in three times and in finals 1 in 5.
In bigger tournament with 2000 and more i haven't yet.
It depends on the game mode and if it is freeroll or not, but it always costs me a bit to reach the final table, therefore they are not frequent as I would like, it is like seasonally that I have streaks for final tables, but not so much tournaments important
