Re: biggest mtt downswing?

I went through a 3 week period in May where I lost about $4000 playing 60/45s and $20-$100 tournaments. That's not that big of a downswing so I consider myself lucky. Most MTT downswings are remedied by one huge score and Ive just been lucky to have several medium sized scores peppered throughout the last few months to stop losses
