Re: Simulated risk of ruin in $1500 WSOP events

I guess things would be different if I weren't so overrolled for online play, or if mid-high stakes MTTs required a bigger roll. Like, I only need a $50k roll to play a $80-$100 ABI at small field online MTTs/low-midstakes cash games. But then I step into the live arena and I'm technically not rolled for even the lowest of WSOP tourneys.
gl with that 50k Roll, pretty sure your risk of Ruin is much much higher than you expect.


Great work, did you do it with Excel or did you code something yourself? Would you make this public ? That would be awesome!
