What is ROI and how is it calculated?

ROI stands for Return on Investment, and is the key statistic used to compare your performance across different contest types and buy-ins. It is a statistic that shows you how much you have won relative to the entry fee.

The figure is expressed as a percentage. If it is positive, you are profitable in that contest, and the higher the percentage, the more you won in proportion to the cost of entry. A negative number means you made a net loss at the contests, after paying the entry fees.

It is calculated with the following simple formula:

ROI = (total won - total entry fees) / (total entry fees) * 100
