Stats Of Online Pro Poker Players

Jul 25, 2008
There are pro poker players out there making a living playing online multi table tournaments (MTT). Poker tournament results are public information. So, we can look at these players results and see statistically how the do it.

The first statistic that sticks out is how many tournaments many of these top players play. Here is an example that isn't that unusual for a top player.

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.

One of the good things about playing so much is that you go through the ups and downs in a fairly short time. Your bad streaks are over in days or weeks instead of months or years. This is much easier to handle mentally.

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.

The thing that makes these players profitable is that they make the mot out of the opportunities to get into the top three spots. The money goes up dramatically at the end of the tournament. Getting one third is vastly more profitable that having a few twenty place finishes.

Are you a winning player? This can be hard to know until you have enough tournament data. Once you have played tons of tournaments you will see the real you. One big win or a streak of bad beats will throw your result way off.

Once you know your basic ROI stats, you can start to control how much you make. If you are a 100% ROI player, and you invest $400 in tournament play, you will profit $400 a day, on average.

The main things we are that these top MTT earners play high volume, and keep a good ROI. The ROI is at least 50% and might be 200% and higher in certain rare cases. The guys who play a ridiculous amount of tournaments will have the lower ROI numbers.

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.
