Default First 101 $30 SNGs at Party - Should I move up ?

Question is in the title, are these results indication enough that I can play the $50 SNGs instead ?

Finished in the money: 42.57%
1st places: 10
2nd places: 17
3rd places: 16
Net amount: $657

Those results aren't great, IMO. You're looking at about 20% ROI. Something like 40% would be better.

I think by gaussian statistics you're probably not a net winning player to even 75% confidence yet.

All depends on your tolerance for risk, though. If you don't much mind giving back your net winnings, you could give it a shot.

Fair enough, I'm in no hurry to move up. Played another 6 and came 2nd in 5 of them.

Seems like my ratio of 2nds to first is far too high, any tips for the short handed play at the end ?

How many hands do you raise or all-in, typically?

Tosh I agree with east the numbers are great but from what I've seen of your play you should have no problem beating the 50's at party. That was the limit I was playing at until I had to withdraw a huge amount of my bankroll because of an emergency. I still remember that one sit n go at stars when you stole my blinds all night long and I never got a chance to play back at you.

Typically any pair, any ace, KQ to about K9, and maybe some other hands like QJ.

~28% of possible hands. A little passive depending on blinds and your opponent, maybe.

Try raising any hand >50% on this list:

and see if your results improve.
