Default My 5 biggest downswings are...

In chronological order:
268BB
196BB
397BB
381BB
178BB

Will I ever beat this game without those enormous downswings? [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Sometimes I wonder, do I really suck that much, is this normal or am I just unlucky...

Thanks,

Guido

some of those are pretty huge. My biggest is probably along the lines of 200. Of course i'm currently in about a 300 BB upswing.

175 and 2 around 100

this is from about 100k hands from 3-6 to 10-20.

I've had many at 100-125BB. About 3 at 125-150.

My 2 biggest... 175BB (3/6 full) and in January 275BB (5/10 6-max).

I had 4 seperate people look through many of the hands of the 275BB downswing, and they all said it was variance. I guess the more hands you play, the more you will see. So if you've had those downswings over 50k hands, you may have to worry. If those downswings were from 2 million hands... I don't think you have a problem. (FWIW.. my downswings are in about 250k hands).

Guido I'm guessing you are talking 10/20 sh here. I've had one of about 350 and some of that was at 5/10 as I dropped down mid slide. I did some _very_ rough calculations at the time and figured with the amount I was playing and the winrate I was used to, meant this would happen once every 5-10 years.

Maybe you play more than me. [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

My 60k first hands at 5/10 I had one 300BB downswing and now I'm in a 150BB downswing, look at my crazy graph , not at all smooth as I want it, and I'm only just over 1BB/100 so I suck [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

This is from since I started playing 6-max. Before that I only played full ring and never lost more than about a 100BB is my guess. I've played about 73K hands at 5/10 and about 136K at 10/20 so about 210K in total.

Thanks,

Guido

guido - if you don't mind me asking, over how many hands did each of these downswings last?

i've been struggling with a pretty dismal winrate over the past 50k hands...I blame small sample size! [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Anyways, for what it's worth, keep on posting here, I value your posts along with 2 or 3 others as the best. I haven't seen many posts/replies from you lately :\
