Considering the odds, the variance and the fact that you're playing online, how many tournaments would you need to play to win one if you're a PROFESSIONAL poker player? For example, if you're a pro and playing the $11 Sunday tournament, how many of these tournaments do u need to play to win it, or at least get in the top three? Playing correctly of course and making the correct decisions most of the time. As an example, would u say that a pro would be able to get in the top three once every one hundred tournaments played?

Simple math...................

I reckon I'm twice as good as the average player in any tournament I enter. So if I play tournaments with 100 players in them I'd expect to win 1 in 50. Therefore, I'd expect my first win to come having played around 25 of them.

Let the abuse begin....................
