Default Re: Bankroll for 5.25 heads up matches on stars?

$50's probably fine.

Just FYI, I like these games a lot. I screwed around with them for a little bit. The players are horrible, and they're fun to play because they're so incredibly player dependent. In 300 I had a 30% ROI (small sample, I know, but I think it's very doable longterm), so they're nice to play and the $/table-hour is much bigger than for 10-person $5.50s. You can't multitable though, so they're not nearly as profitable.

Actually, 300 games is probably quite a nice sample size for HU matches.

Meh. I've been doing way too much math on these boards today, so I'm not gonna attempt to prove/disprove what you just said. Maybe you're right; I'm just under the assumption that sample sizes are almost always too small [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]. I do know that after ~150 games my ROI was like 15%; so that suggests that there's still significant variance at this scale.
