Return on Investment

So you're always worried about the ROI and that doesn't always need to mean monetary though that's usually the first thing we think of when considering ROI. For me I'm also considering the ROI of playing within the skill league tournaments under the current conditions. Is it worth it for me to attempt to wade through all the shove monkeys and hope that they don't get lucky when I finally get a hand worthy to play their game of donkey bingo or do I take that time and spend it elsewhere.

I've made quick work earning the necessary FPPs to be active next month as I started when I was sitting on the leaderboard with 1612 in points, but after the recent mass influx of monkeys I've dropped a couple hundred points to the lowest levels I've been all month. In the same time I've seen my ROI on playing straight cash games rocket in the other direction making the time I spend on the ring games much more profitable and a better ROI for me.

So I'll be active for Feb, but we'll see if I bother to try and attain the leaderboard standings. As of right now I honestly don't think it's worth the time, energy and frustration of trying to improve my game when there are clearly so many that are failing to see the point of the PSO in the first place. I'm not quite sure where PSO failed, maybe the quiz and requirements to particpate are simply too broad and easy that it doesn't really challenge anyone. The mentality just doesn't seem to be there for a "school" and students wanting to improve and learn.
