How often do you win when you reach the final table?

Postby Pred1984 » Sat Aug 27, 2005 6:29 pm

Assuming 10 people at the final table, the math says you should win 10% of the time - assuming your chip position is spread evenly so you're not always getting there as one of the small stacks.

My percentage is somewhat higher than that, but the sample is still relatively small.  So I'm curious if anyone else keeps track.

My percentage is lower for a couple of reasons.I am almost always one of the shorter stacks because I play so tight.I just try to make one level at a time even if I give up some winning hands to do so.My style of play gets me to alot of money but very few wins.The other reason is I am not real good at heads up play.Heads up takes alot of luck which I lack.

ive often find i make  last 3 tables 50% of my tournaments and also find that out of them 3 tables 50% of the time ill make the final table, i also find that i make much more loose calls when ive reached the prizes and never really win a tournament unless i get a large stack and a lot of luck!!!  :D

I have a nasty habit of making it to the top 4 or 5 before stalling out.  My short-handed play late in tourneys is a definite weakness that I hope to improve upon.

If I had to guess, I'd say that I win the whole thing 10% of the time once I make it to the final table.

I got final table several time if i play in private table.
rarely in some freeroll with 2000 people.
Prefer short-handed table than many people because too much probability get knocked out with crap hand.

reaching final table

Postby Cultin » Sat Nov 19, 2005 2:13 am


So for the most part I get within the top 30 or so.... have only made it to the final table twice.  Don't think I make dumb bets... and rarely bluff.  What do I do to get that little bit farther?  Any tip??

Everytime I make the final table I will get top 4 if I try. I will let the people that are happy they made the money out and then chip away at the big stacks. I have gotten plenty of 1st place finishes.

Not often... but the biggest mistakes I have seen people make is not playing their game.  You gotta stick to your playing stratagies... they got you this far... the blinds are so huge, you can not sit and hope to wait it out.. you will be eatin alive.
