Set 5: Not complaining

Set 5 has been finished. While I did made a profit, it could have been better/bigger. I bubbled in 4 SNGs. If I did made it ITM in 50% of these the profit would have bigger. One I bubbled out with AQ vs A3, another time when my AK didn't get any help and lost against 99, more unfortunate was the preflop push with 77 when I did run into JJ. But I could live with this push. It was in late position.

I did reach 18 FTs of the 25. Not bad at all. My conversion rate FT into an ITM place is 38%. This should increase in the future.
The 7 ITMs were good for an overall profit is: $10.25. A ROI of 23%, which is good enough.

I only won 1. Not good enough. On the other hand 4 second places. I don't have the feeling that my heads up play is not good enough. I just picked some wrong time to push or call.
The fact that I didn't end on a fourth place is also a good sing. I hope it does mean that my bubble play is getting more aggressive.

The overall profit over 125 SNGs has increased to $21.55, with a still to low ROI of 9,8%.
The average ending position in this set was 7,24, which is excellent for me.

I also finally did came to the conclusion that the quantity of games played in the SNGs is important for and your profit and to wipe out variance.

Can I ask what rake you are paying in these sngs, is it $1.50+$0.25 or $1.60+$0.15? Either way, you are going to struggle to get a better roi on that whilst paying such a high rake. Problem is that at those levels that is around the going rate.

I'd actually go further and say that is pretty impressive, I would doubt if many could beat it. If you are interested in stepping up a level, I would be prepared to have a try at staking you. Send me an email to the address on my blog if this is something you would consider. Good luck!

Thx for the offer Wildcat but I have the feeling that I'm not ready to step up a level (yet).

Did try to find your email address on your blog but the noob I am I didn't find it.
