Default How long have you played break even poker?

I've previously had either two or three (I don't remember off hand and haven't tried to look it up) 10 thousand hand runs of break even poker. The longest was either 11k or 11.5k hands (again, I'm too lazy too look it up for sure).

Right now I've hit 12.5k hands on my latest downswing and am still 86 BB's underwater. So I'm officially paving new ground on a personal record. (Fortunately for my sanity, I've had 400 bucks in bonus's over this stretch and when I get my December rakeback I think it will push me over my highwater mark in purely bankroll terms).

So what's the longest anybody's run in the red? I think I remember somebody saying 16k hands...can anybody top that?


Hey I know this info ain't improving anybody's game so ignore it if that's all that floats your boat, but c'mon somebody's got to have a really eye popping number. Lay it on us.

Of course if you aren't a winning player your losing streak may be untouchable...

Yeah I've had about 15,000 hand breakeven streaks, twice.

I play anywhere from 30-45,000 hands a month though.

From Statking:

Longest Plateau: 981.67 (table) hrs, 3/24/2004 to 7/18/2004

That's 62981 hands, 1/2, 2/4, 3/6 and a tiny bit of 5/10.


Edit - Single limit:

5/10

Longest Plateau: 548.07 (table) hrs, 9/13/2004 to 12/18/2004
39060 hands.

but I played 10/20 all through October and had a good month, so its not the same.

39k hands breakeven. For a b&m player that would be 140 8 hour sessions. Baby jesus would weep before the end. *shudder*

Break even, I'd love to break even. Currently in the mist of a 9K bad beat suck out from hell bonanza. Fighting my way back but still 80BB down.

I can tell you how many times I have said "Only xx beats me" and get shown xx.

Breakeven? As long as I have played. Maybe 250-300K hands.

Losing? Dunno. Recently (within the last 40K hands) 15.5K hands of losing play is my max.

Please tell me you are kidding? If you've broken even over 250-300,000 hands I'd suggest you take up another hobby.
