Wow, I actually won a place in the overall table? Wow!
@Marth: I think the first table after overall is win% not winnings.
@kirby007: I can't bet 5000 as I only have an overall wealth of 3900VG$. And usually there are three rounds open. In the past I had already to calculate pretty strongly to make my bets and hope that the payout of an older round happens before the one running was closing, to get some decent bets in.
with time you will get enough to do that and frankly its just % wise best to bet big on things you are most sure on.
lets take last round as example
with that additional 3k in bet amount marth made an extra 700vg$ which does sound as ALOT but its less effective as ROI,
IMO ideally you would want to spread those 3900vg$ over the best money makers in multiple rounds
as it turns out in this round betting big on the SWITCH rewards little due to the average being so high, so if you feel that an average is very close to what you expect dont put much money in it and see if a next round has a better opportunity. The thing is Marth has so much vg$ due to his database work it doesnt matter for him where to put money on, which is why i suspect his winning% is lower because he isn't picky what he bets his money on
