View Full Version : 100 SNG's in 1 day!

03-15-2004, 01:19 PM
Later this week, i plan on playing in 100 10 player SNG's in one day and my goal is to cash in 50% of them, which is tough, But i plan to cash at LEAST 40%, which is 3% under my current rate, and am looking to get a 1 day ROI of 40%, which is about 9% higher than usual. What is the most tourneys anyone else has ever played/ heard played in 1 day?

BTW, b4 anyone asks how, i play 4 at once, and average 6-7 per hour.

P.S. Cross-posted in Internet forum

40% in the money, 40% ROI ?? Wanna bet ?? That's very possible over time, but to do 100 in one day I find unlikely - no offense here to your skill obviously.

I think going 100 without having anything to happen and put you on temporary tilt is unlikely. I also find getting those numbers while playing 4 at once over long periods unlikely. Good luck, it's an interesting goal !!

Nice goal. I used to 4 table low buy in SnG's and probably played 25-30 in a day before, never anywhere near 100 though. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

To play 6-7 per hour you'd have to finish them all in 45 minutes or less. Not very likely for me, however maybe you're the type who either doubles up early or goes broke trying.

If you're constantly finishing 1st-5th I think your numbers (timewise) are pretty much unobtainable.

After 150 $30 SNGs, my average is just under 38 minutes each, with an average finish of 4.2. Given that the $10 SNGs probably have more nuts that knock themself out in the first round, I would think the average time for that level would be even shorter.

I was thinking about trying the same thing, although playing 6 at the same time instead of 4. 100 in 1 day just sounds impressive.

I think cashing in 40% is reasonable but I predict you'll miss the ROI figure by a good margin. Good luck though, I hope you succeed /images/graemlins/smile.gif

Right now, in 325 tourneys, i cash 43% have a 31% ROI, and win 12%, place 17%, and show 14%. 40% is VERY reasonable for cash % for me, 40% ROI is a goal, and a lofty one, but i was there for my first 85 tourneys, as is 50% cash rate.

Yes you have good numbers. The thing that interests me is the number of tables. I found when I went from three to two my ROI went north of 50%. To me that is the real challenge, keeping the ROI up when you're on four tables at once. I think getting into the money will be easier, but winning when you may have 2 or 3 playing heads up at once is tougher to fathom.

Well, i've done 45 in 7 hours b4, not really trying to pound in games, so yes, i realize i'm looking at 16-17 hours of play. I may use another account on the same site and get more in at once, but i'd rather not, since i dont want to divide the player points i accrue. Most of my games do take, 30-60 minutes, but 6-7 per hour is reasonable, even with my current high cash rate. I have little problem playing 4 at t ime, and am doing so now while typing this even, so skill falloff due to 4x is no factor for me.

At the level i'm playing at, i'm much better off playing 4x than 2x, even if i had a 10% or so increase in ROI, whih is doubtful.

Stay away from coffee or tea as they are a diuretic(spelling) as I don't think you will have time to pee.

they seem to space out ok, but yes, there are times when i have had 3 HU matches going at once, but it's not terrible. Again, i could probably eek out another coupla %, but, without trying to sound arrogant, i pretty much have my game down to a science in these.
