I know this is a very small sample size, but I want to make sure I have the calculation down. Could someone please calculate my ROI for the following SnGs? Please write out the formula, as well, if you'd be so kind. Thanks for the help.30 + 3 - 2nd - 8130 + 3 - 1st - 13530 + 3 - 3rd - 54I played 9 SnGs yesterday, including these 3. I thought ROI = 99 / 270 = .366 = 37%Here's 5 more from yesterday, all 20 + 2s.3rd - 366th - 06th - 0 3rd - 364th - 0 - ouch, i hate 4th placeNow, by my above formula, my ROI = 110 / 72 = 1.527 = 153%This 153% doesnt make sense to me. What am I doing wrong?

you makin no sense manyou take how much you bought in for (stop the 30+3, its 33).take money bought in, then take how much money you made after bought in...and there you go.like if you bought in for \$100 and you end up with \$200, thats 100% roi - your return on investment was 100%. (more importantly you made \$100)

10+1 sitngos so far from ft bare with me im doing the math in my head1, 2, 6, 1, 3, 2, 5, 6, 1, 5, 1, 1, 4,5, 8, 2, 2, 4, 1, 3, 5, 4,2,1,7,1,6,3,21= 8 so 8 times 11 = -88 + 8 times 45 = 360=88= 272 2=6 so -66 + 6 times 27 = 963= 3 so -33 + 18 times 3 = 214-9= 12 so -132? meaning from 29 sitngos i have made \$257 and i have invested 319 so what is my ROI ? i have also read the bet the pot artivle but i still can't figure it out

257 / 319 = .81 -1 = -.19 = -19%0% is break even

its only 19%? wierd they say 45 percent ROIs are possible but that means there ITMs must be 70 percent and have a far larger amount of 1sts than 2nd or 3rds

257 / 319 = .81 -1 = -.19 = -19%0% is break even
We calcaulated it wrong. Let's try again, lol.(45 x 8) + (6 x 27) + (3 x 18) = 360 + 162 + 54 = 576576 / 319 = 1.811.81 - 1 = .81 = 81% ROI

200 sng's is next to nothing, 1000 should be a minimum to even start to see your winrate.
1k is stone minimum. 5k-10k gives you a pretty accurate picture as to where you're at.

The link you gave is dead, so I don't know what its telling you to do but:ROI% = PROFIT/INVESTMENT....or (WINNINGS - INVESTMETNT)/ INVESTMENT.....oror WINNINGS/INVESTMENT - 1so for your question :(72 - 110)/110 = - 34.5 %have fun.

Both of you are so far off I'm not sure if you even play SnGs.

Pat, you're killing the 10+1s, move up to 2os if your br is 400.
