# CHAPTER 12 – How to Make a Stable Income Playing Sit&Go’s

Return on Investment (ROI) is the way in which the success of Sit&Go tournaments is measured. This is shown as your profit per game and is expressed as a percentage of the buy-in after the fee is removed. For example someone making an average of \$2 per game at the \$10+\$1 level, they would have an ROI of 18.2% (\$2/\$11 = 18.2%)

Hourly Rate simply takes your expected ROI and number of games you play per hour and gives an average hourly ‘wage’ for your efforts. Using the above example an 18.2% ROI at the \$10+\$1 level and 4 games per hour would give you an hourly rate of \$8. These two concepts are heavily related. Increasing the number of games per hour (by multi-tabling) may decrease your ROI but increase your overall hourly rate. If you want to play Sit&Go’s for a living and live comfortably, following this guide will give you an average ROI below:

\$10 +\$1= 30% ROI

\$20+\$2 = 25% ROI

\$30+\$3 = 20% ROI

\$50+\$5 = 15% ROI

\$100+\$9 =10%ROI

\$200+\$15=5% ROI

Now in order to make a comfortable living playing Sit&Go’s, really depends on how much money you need. Let me show you a simple calculation. This is based on playing 10 Sit&Go games an hour, which is very easy to do with some practice.

\$11 – ROI = 30% – (11*0.20)*6 = \$19.80 / Hour

\$22 – ROI = 25% – (22*0.25)*6 = \$33.00 / Hour

\$33 – ROI = 20% – (33*0.20)*6 = \$39.60 / Hour

\$55 – ROI = 15% – (55*0.15)*6 = \$49.50 / Hour

\$109 – ROI = 8% – (109*0.08)*6 = \$52.32 / Hour

\$215 – ROI = 5% – (215*0.05)*6 = \$64.00 / Hour

## Let’s calculate this per year so you can get a feeling how great playing Sit&Go’s can be when following this guide:

\$11 – ROI = 30% – (11*0.20)*6 = \$19.80 / Hour*2080 = \$41,184.00 / Year

\$22 – ROI = 25% – (22*0.25)*6 = \$33.00 / Hour*2080 = \$68,640.00 / Year

\$33 – ROI = 20% – (33*0.20)*6 = \$39.60 / Hour*2080 = \$82,368.00 / Year

\$55 – ROI = 15% – (55*0.15)*6 = \$49.50 / Hour*2080 = \$102,960.00 / Year

\$109 – ROI = 8% – (109*0.08)*6 = \$52.32 / Hour*2080 = \$108,825.60 / Year

\$215 – ROI = 5% – (215*0.05)*6 = \$64.00 / Hour*2080 = \$133,120.00 / Year

As you can see, it’s a nice chunk of change for playing Sit&Go’s with an achievable ROI. As you go up in buy in of a Sit&Go the ROI will decrease, but the amount you win goes up!

Look when you reach \$200 + \$15 Sit&Go’s, you only need to have a 5% ROI per year and you will still bring home a nice chunk of change…\$133,120.00 to be exact. With the strategies outlined in this guide, you can be making the numbers listed above in no time.

### Buy-in + Usual Fee Bankroll Requirements

\$5 + \$0.50 with \$110 – \$165 bankroll

\$10 + \$1 with \$220 – \$330 bankroll

\$20 + \$2 with \$440 – \$660 bankroll

\$30 + \$3 with \$660 – \$990 bankroll

\$50 + \$5 with \$1100 – \$1650 bankroll

\$100 + \$9 with \$2180 – \$3270 bankroll

\$200 + \$15 with \$4300 – \$6450 bankroll

Here is my suggestion on building a solid bankroll and turning it into 6 figures per year.
