Premier League Minimum Level Costs

By: CorkiePoker @ 12:37 (EDT) / 240 / Comment ( 0 )

The following table assumes 9 hands / level are played, this might actually be as low as 6 or as high as 14. It assumes breaks are exactly 5 minutes, they're more like 5.5 to 7 It assumes costs for the break level are evenly split to both sides of the break, this isn't true in practice but it should average out over time.   Why is this important or interesting? The level cost is your cost to "sit out" a particular level.   If you finish the first hour with 3000 chips, that might seem like a great result (all things considered, it's not a bad result), but you can see from the chart that it means you're only 3/4 of the way to finishing hour 2 flat broke. In order to finish hour 2 at least as well as you started, you must earn (win) 38% more chips than you now have.
