Hello everyone. Been away for a bit due to work. Good to see the forum get away from the whiners and babies, or so it seems so far.

I've played a few more live tourneys during this time and it got me wondering. What percentage of ITM is good for live tourneys and what sample size do you need to judge if your becoming a good player?

I would worry about making the correct decisions each and every hand. The results will come. Once you have an understanding that if you make the correct decisions. The results will catch up.

My results I think are very good I just want a few opinions and maybe some numbers before I post the results. I don't want to come out bragging first. Of course you can see my online results are not very good.

You'd probably need to play over 100 games to get much of a read. If you're making money live though, then

I can't really comment on live stats, because I don't know much about live play.

ITM for MTT is very hard to make a good target. If the typical payout is top 15% and you are cashing over 20% I'd say you are doing good.

I have played 16 tournies in the past 5 months, 5 ITM and 2 of them were wins. All but 2 were 3 table tourneys. Just want these type of results online too.

it looks pretty good actually but looks like the casino in your area is kinda small compared to where i am...

i played the BICYCLE CASINO's dailey tournament several times, made back to back final table... and its usually 70~110 players for about $50ish buy-ins + add on sometimes

i think i played there for about 6 times and made final table twice cashed over 1k...

i also played at hustler down in south played their $100 dailey tourney twice and made final table once but KO'd in 8th so not much there... so like ... 10 tournies of 50~100ish buy ins with 70~100+ players 3 final tables :S

but then... i started to play poker late spring last year :S so i have not much experience.
