Prize pool at 6 mans is 6 x buy in.
Prize pool at 9 mans is 9 x buy in.
This is probably one of the main things you're missing
Eh, my roi was pretty similar in 6m and 9m back in the day. I think it depends mostly on the lineups. I guess 6m has more hardcore vpp grinders (like OP), while 9m has more fish, which is probably the main reason 9m rois are higher in general. Not sure whether this is the case at the $7s though.
Why are higher rois attainable at 9m than 6m? It seems like 6m would be higher b/c you get to play a higher % of hands. 6m also probably averages a lot less time per game, which will affect hourly (though not pure roi). I'm not familiar with the stars ST structures though, so maybe I am missing something.
Assuming the same player pool, 9m has more hands dealt on average which means more opportunity to exploit a skill edge.
There is also a tendency for hourly rates to balance out between the different game structures from regs moving to more attractive games. Since 6m games are shorter, they tend to attract more good players (for more tables per hour to increase their hourly) until that equilibrium is reached by the good players driving down the attainable ROI.
Alex, how is the traffic in the $500 and $300ís affecting your goalís expectations?
Do they run as frequent as you had foreseen?
Do you think 10mil VPPís is achievable? Assuming you play 8 hours mon-fri, and 5 or 6h on Sat,what do you think itís the cap given the traffic?
You mentioned you started in 2012 with $3k (at $15?), 1 year later you are playing $500ís for $1M,
Is your br now 100% profit from your htís 2012 run? I mean, donít you consider that quite extraordinary? Didnít you ever drop in stakes through downswings? What kind of ROI do you need for that and how long do you think any decent winning run of the mill player would need to achieve this?
It is very nice how you changed your attitude Alex in the last months, hopefully you could reach what you planned originally. How about the recent updates? Both here and on your website... I just miss them.
Sorry for raising here but what happened with Mouldy? I just checked his website today and there are some bullsh*t gambling links... Zima finished his staking or what?
