Keep grinding them out Ads!

You've made some solid cashes there and I know that a couple of wins and top 3 finishes are well within your ability.

You know as well as I do that a few top 3 finishes would bring your balance right up there!

Keep it simple at this level, play solid ABC poker and at the same time ship it in if you believe that you are ahead in the hand. Nobody ever won a tournament while waiting for premium hands so be prepared to take a risk when it's an educated risk. Risk is good!

I wish you every success my friend!

4/14 ITM in these is spot on. Just make 1 of those a top 3 finish each time and you'll be on your way.

Good luck.

Charts beginning to look nice
You know Cowboy is about the only person I know of who has 23% ITM
I know of one other player who also has 23% ITM and he turns out to be a student of Cowboy's
I thought that was interesting also .
My ITM is at 19% Boku87 I think hes at 15% Gravy is at 15% .
I find players with high profits are around 15 % ITM
However this is also a reflection of the fact that they play large MTT's , so just one or two hits in a large MMT at 1st,2nd, or 3rd place can generate huge ROI overall. Not only that but the top money makers in S+G's also have a large range of buy ins. Buyins ranging from $55.00 to $1000.00 plus.
So you can have low ITM yet a high ROI due to fact you win at the richer buy ins or in the larger MTT's. The reverse can also be true . A player could have a 19% ITM at say $1.00 buy ins but his losses at $5.00 buy ins could destroy his ROI from his $1.00 buy in wins. However anyone with a 15% to 25% ITM should feel comfortable that they are doing some thing right. I almost think that 20% ITM could be a defining point of a really good s+g player. Yet we know from real stats that players with just 15% ITM yield huge profits in the hundreds of thousands typically. All things being equal I would prefer to have Cowboy's 23% ITM . Give me that and the money will follow.
Mine is currently at 19% I think , yeah 9078 games and 19% ITM . with a negative 7 ROI.
See that is a direct reflection of losing at higher buy ins and winning more at lower buy ins. It yields a negative ROI even though the ITM at 19% is impressive.
Well I managed to make a reply without being rude or drunk or slightly mad.
It's gonna be a good day tater.
