Default Sample Size Question

Just curious as to how big of a sample size one needs before he/she has a good idea of how well they will do at a certian level. I am currently 4-6 tabling the 22s and have logged just over 200 SNGs (just moved up to the 22s from the 11s). I was wondering if this was a large enough sample size to aproximate my ITM and ROI percentages. Thoughts?

Most people don't think 1000 SNGs is enough, for what it's worth. Pros tens of thousands of SNGs with 15% ROI+ see swings that run across hundreds or even thousands of SNGs.

Oh and read the FAQ.
