Online Tournament Pro Statistics

Jun 18, 2008
Are there players who make a living from online tournaments? Yes, there are players who make a lot of money in online tournaments. There are stats available, let's see how they do it.

First thing we see is that these guys play a lot of tournaments. One player, who made $200,000 on one site in one year of play, was in over 2,200 tournaments. He averaged paying $175 per event. His return on investment was 52%.

If he plays something like five days a week, he has to play over eight tournaments a day. You have to multi table to get this done. So, these players are playing a few games at the same time.

One of the great things about playing so many events is that you go through the downswings faster, time wise. The hot streaks and bad beat sessions start to even out quicker. This helps you avoid a losing streak lowering your playing level.

If you can learn to play more than one table you get a couple of benefits. First you can make more money per hour if you can play successfully on more tables. Also, you are less tempted to make mistakes due to boredom. With four or more table going, there is always something going on.

The top internet players make it to the money in about 15% of the time. This stat can vary from player to player, but is amazingly standard. To get a feel for how tough psychologically MTTs can be. The best online players cash on average 15 times for every 100 tournaments they play in, a sobering thought.

They will take the risks, earlier in the tournament, to get a big stack that could get them a win. The top players understand that barely cashing isn't big a deal. Getting into the final spots once in a while is how you profit.

Until you have a lot of results, it's hard to know how good you are. The swings are big in MTT play, especially when you play in big fields. A big win, or ban run, will distort your results.

When you have a lot of tournaments, a thousand (or more) maybe, you can start to trust the numbers. Then you have a good idea of what you can expect. You can to some accuracy predict what your income can be, if things stay the same.

We see that most of the top players have a high volume style. In spite of this volume they keep ROI fairly high. Only the very high stakes players might do this a bit different.

If you feel like you can beat the MTTs, make sure you study up on bank roll management, The ability to play won't help you if you blow your roll. You can't escape the fact that there will be losing streaks that you'll need to ride out.
