Hello all, I'd like to think I'm pretty good with math but I tried to calculate my odds and anticipated ROI with various tournaments and it's driving me crazy. For example, lets talk about the Golden Nugget tournament. All things being equal odds of making the final table is 1 in 162. Calculations are from the following: 1st round: 2 of 6 advance (1 in 3 chance) 2nd round: 2 of 6 advance (1 in 3 chance) QTR Final: 2 of 6 advance (1 in 3 chance) SEMI Final: 1 of 6 advance (1 in 6 chance) 3x3x3x6=162 Now....assuming the final table chops the pot each player at the final table will take home around $14,000. Ok, if the average player will make the final table every 162 times they play at $500 a shot that means they are spending $81,000 for every $14,000 they make which doesn't make sense at all. My calculations must be off somewhere but I'm not sure how. I assumed tournaments where fairly decent with ROI assuming the tournament payouts close to what they bring in. HELP!!!
