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.

How does this suggest significant variance?

Well in the first 150 he had a 15% ROI, and in the 2nd 150 he had a 45% ROI, thats a pretty big change?

My ROI for first 150 was ~15%. My ROI then was ~45% over the next 150. That's variance.

you can play at least 2 of these at once.
the 4 person headsup matches are better i think.

I'm not sure if you're joking or not. That's actual very possible... if you win these 60% of the time, your ROI is ~15%. If you win 70%, of the time, it's ~35%. Not sure if it's realistic to say that I jumped from ~60% to ~75% chance of winning.

Your ROI will be, generally speaking, higher, but so will your variance - so your bankroll needs to be very solid.

I think thats right anyway, i cant be arsed to get the calculator out however.
