Default Varience at its best...

Let me start out by saying this is NOT a bad beat post (or a post complaining about a series of bad beats for that matter). I know I am new to the forum but I am trying to fit in [img]/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]. Keep in mind that I do understand varience and I have no control over the swings.

As I continue my downswing for the last 40 games, I thought I would post a little graphic for you all to see. I know that 70 games is a very small sample size, but darn is this normal? have you had much worse swings? Can you tell me a bad swing story so I can feel better about myself? (It will help me play my A game during rough times).



My SNG Tracker stats:
ROI -10%
ITM 30%
$/tourney -$1.14

I play strictly $10+1 games.

Thank for the help!!

This is nothing and you don't even have a samplesize.

I went -ROI for over 250 sngs at 10+1 and i know people have been on the negative side for more than 1000 sngs.

Yes. However I have been playing SNG games elsewhere for nearly 5 months.

why is it that when people lose for x games they never ever think that they might be a losing player instead of just "on the negative side"?

Probably because they are a long term losing player, and you very well may be too.

You know, most people are.

I've lost my last 14 SNGs (a new record for me!) and 25 of my last 28.

Varience is a bitch.

I know I am because I'm a long term winner at 109s

Didn't raptor say he had -ROI for over 1000 sngs at the 109s? or am I making things up?
