not to be a pessimist - but that looks like a 23k very hot streak followed by your normal win rate - and maybe I AM TOTALLY offbase on that so do not be offended (not sure your LT WR), however that is a terribly long streak for it not to be a statistical miracle (assuming a 2BB/100 win rate that is)

If you don't mind me asking, how many hands/month do you play?

As someone who has to strive to get 10k/mo., this terrifies me.

Is this all the same game? Or did you kill one limit and then move up and not do so well at the next level?

You could very well be right, in fact, I am starting to think that myself. However, much of the downswings on that graph are at 10/20 6-max (-3bb/100 in aprox. 7000 hands). If I just filter out the 7000 hands of 10/20 it looks a little better (170,000 of these hands are at 5/10). And this graph is in BB instead of $$.

Hmm...that original graph is pretty misleading then. It sounds like you just took a 7k shot and got burned and that crushed your winrate.
