Calculating poker ability/skill using PO

Most of the statistics given to you on pokerowned unfortunately do not reflect how good you really are at poker. leader boards are great, but there is no time limit or number of games counted. Total money earned falls under the same category.

However, one statistic you can use is # of 1st place finishes vs # of final tables made (this information can be found at the top of the leaderboards. Of course the more final tables you have, the more accurate the ratio reflects your abilities vs other PO players. The average on poker owned will be 1/9, or .1111. To find your number, you can do the equation :

Total 1st place finishes / Total final tables

if your number is above .11111, you are above the PO average and if it is lower, you are under the PO average. Happy calculating!
