Or put simply: the profit line has no reason to fall harder after a big unsustainable rush; it has no "memory" of what happened before.
So I thought I'd make this thread. I'd like advice for preparing for the downswing and playing from an optimal mental place while I'm still in the rush.
Easy: Don't even think of it as profit yet!
Forget about the rush and just concentrate on playing more and finding your longterm winrate/ROI... Then you can tell yourself "if I play X hours, on average, I'll make $Y", etc and rushes/downswings won't bother you so much.
