So nobody knows and those who might won't, nor should they, share.

Brilliant.

There are a bunch of problems with answering this question. First, MTTs vary greatly in size and structure. Second, MTTs have huge variance, so you need a ridiculously large sample size of MTTs to get reliable numbers. Third, combine problems one and two, and you see that you need a ridiculously large sample size of similarly structured and sized MTTs, which is really hard to come by.

Really rough numbers (i.e., within maybe a factor of 4) are 100% ROI and 15% ITM.

FT% and win% are totally bogus statistics because FTing a 9000 person MTT 1/10 times'd be amazing, while FTing a 50 person MTT 1/10 times'd be pretty pathetic.

This reply makes the most sense out of it. Thanks for taking the time. I have similar ideas. What it boils down to, I guess, is that entering these things should have the same expectation as flushing $100 bills down the toilet. If you can afford to, great, you can, but if you can't you shouldn't. By the time you know it was a bad idea, it's going to be way too late anyway.

Ummmm... no. I've met very few people who flush bills down the toilet professionally and most of them have quit by now saying that the myths of easy wealth are bull.

Yes, flushing $100 bills down a toilet is so parallel to the big tournies. I forgot that in MTTs, you never seen your $100 again. MAN! I wish I knew that only plumbers won the $500k tourney, or I would have quit long ago.

You seem like a person who believes we're all out to harm you, make fun of you, purposely sidestep questions. However, what we're trying to tell you is that your approach here is kind of brash. The answers to these questions are so broad that even trying to give you an exact answer is hard. Yes, someone gave you some rough numbers, and you'll take them into your style and pray for 15% ITM. However, what if you are capable of 20% ITM? What I am saying, as my opinion, is that you need to figure out what YOU want to accomplish and work towards it. How is that not a sufficient answer?

Why don't you keep track of your own statistics and draw your own conclusions based on your own results? That seems to me to be the easiest--and only--way to come up with a valid answer.
