  • 100 $1.50 Turbo STTs

    Hello

    I have been intending for some time to go for some volume SNG playing.

    Last year I had some success with 180man turbos but Now I have not been having the bankroll for them.

    After my score in the last BB I decided maybe it was time, but 2 things made me reconsider my game choice:
    a) My time available is sporadic (work, family, other interests) so it is difficult to build up any volume in the 180mans
    b) The BB was the longest tournament I had ever played in my life (almost 6 hours) as I am a turbo guy so I fancied some shorter gaames.

    I had not played STT for ages (well maybe a couple) so why not try them out.

    I decided not to make this a public challenge immediately as I did not know how well I would like them.

    After a few games I decided to do it.

    so:
    * 100 9man $1.50 turbos
    * target of over 40% ROI
    * no time limits on challenge, as I cannot be sure of free time, but these are short so should not be a problem to finish the 100 during the Golden SNG promotion.

    if things go well, I might extend the challenge to 250 games before the end of the month. This will give me Silverstar

    I plan to play few other games during this, except the league games

        OK

        After 3 days (I might add another session late today though):

        I played 2 regular speed Knockout games by mistake before I changed mu lobby filters. I am counting these but not sure if HEM is taking bounties into account. I will check that later.


        Games played: 30
        Total buyin: $45
        Prizes: $66.59
        Profit: $21.59
        ROI: 48.0%
        ITM: 14/30 = 46.7%

        finishes in the turbos:
        3rd: 3 x $2.37 = $7.11
        2nd: 1 x $3.56 = $3.56
        1st: 8 x $5.95 = $47.60

        finishes in the 2 KO games:
        2nd: 1 x $2.91
        1st: 1 x $5.41

        so far so good, I'd say

          minor corrections:

          HEM says I won $2.91 for second place in one of the KOs, but according to Pokerstar's email I also received 3 bounties $0.27 each giving me a total of $3.72
          HEM says I won $5.41 for winning the other KO, but Pokerstars says I won $4.87 for 1st place + 7 bounties for a total of $4.87+$1.98 = $6.85

          Maybe I'll just add 2 games to the challenge and not include the KOs

              I played one session tonight.
              This time I played 10 tables (up to now I had only been 4-tabling or 6-tabling)
              This might have affected my game a bit as the ROI for the session was only 10.9%

              this sessions info:
              10 games
              ROI 10.9%
              ITM 4/10 = 40%
              profit: $1.64
              two first places, two 3rd places

              total for the challenge (I am only counting the $1.50 9man Turbos, the knockouts do not count):
              38 games
              ROI: 31.4%
              ITM: 42.1%
              profit: $17.91

              finishes:
              3rd: 5
              2nd: 1
              1st: 10

                I also found out that is is very difficult to multi-table these games at the same time I am playing league games. I am afraid I have lost some points.

                  Another 11 games
                  This time lost $4.60
                  only 2 ITM, both first place

                  now 49 games played
                  profit $13.31
                  ROI has lowered to 18.1%

                    Played another 13 games yesterday, again with a loss.

                    ITM: 35.5%
                    ROI: 11.2%
                    W$: $10.45

                    finishes:
                    3rd: 7
                    2nd: 1
                    1st: 12

                      HEM doesn't include the KO bounties (at the 1.50 level at least). It's a constant annoyance, even though I rarely seem to win them, but you can manually edit your results to make your graph look pretty.

                        good point.

                        I've decide not to include the KO games in this challenge, but I might do a series of these later.
