good evening poker gents, can someone take me to school in learning how to improve your ROI percentage, what are the best games to play and how is this procedure determine in the poker world..thanks for your help and advice..see u around





Play freerolls. Play value added tournaments. Play better poker.
Not necessarily in that order, but you get the gist 




If you have a "go to game"something that you have played a good amount of times and has been a consistent money maker for you ( a certain ring game,a SNG or 2 that you generally kill) work that sucker like a coal mine. It will rarely (if ever.......) be an MTT, as the variance in MTT's is just so great. But if you have some goto's that can steadily build your roll,that's what gives you the bank to use for your MTT excursions. And it's the occasional deep,deep run in an MTT that will give you that big spike in your ROI. (Just winning $33 in the .25 $100 addedthat $100 added is the type of thing I believe Dman meant when he said valueaddedjust that 4th place there jumped my ROI from 31% to 59% in one fell swoop.)
Anyways for me that seems to be the path,my SNG winnings are what I can use to fund my MTT plays so that I can concentrate on playing for deeper runs in the MTT's (hopefully I can sprinkle in a win here and there to)and not worry that my ITM% is lower in MTT's as I have a different goal in mind. 




one thing you want to do with it.... do not try to get too much of a jump in a single tourney. You don't want to be chasing it. I agree with Mox, you need to find a 'go to' game and continually play it and raise your profit numbers.





Without a hud how can one discover what his ROI percentage is?

you can put in anyone's table name and find out their ROI for all public 36+ person tournies. They don't track everything, but it's a good tool to use. 




sharkscope will tell you if you opt in





It is the average of a probability distribution of possible returns, calculated by using the following formula:
E(R)= Sum: probability (in scenario i) * the return (in scenario i) How do you calculate the average of a probability distribution? As denoted by the above formula, simply take the probability of each possible return outcome and multiply it by the return outcome itself. For example, if you knew a given investment had a 50% chance of earning a 10% return, a 25% chance of earning 20% and a 25% chance of earning 10%, the expected return would be equal to 7.5%: = (0.5) (0.1) + (0.25) (0.2) + (0.25) (0.1) = 0.075 = 7.5% Although this is what you expect the return to be, there is no guarantee that it will be the actual return. >Dem 




I forgot to add (because I rarely play cash) table selection.
You don't need to be the best player in the world to make a profit from this game. Just make sure that the eight (or five) that you sit down with are worse than you.
