15k-ish with an avg buy-in of $100-$150, whee. Part of it from not being as good as I thought I was after being on a massive heater and not studying/reviewing whatsoever, which I think is pretty common.

Re: biggest mtt downswing?

What's a "downswing"?
I play Micro, I think 50 str8 non-cashes playing $1-$4

Most of that was helped by never really having a huge downswing at the $5 STTs though.

Re: biggest mtt downswing?

I don't really keep good records, or any for that matter, so I'm not really sure. but, from march 10th till april 28th i know i did not do very well at all... and i go through ~15k in buyins a week

um just db'ed myself. forgot i was playing a bit live and put in very low volume online. anyway from the above dates: -12k on ftp, -17.5k on stars, and like -6k between AP UB bodog and cake

so i guess i run good and havent had that bad of a downswing.... considering i just remembered i won a cake sat for like 8k , and on my last live trip of the season (san remo) i cashed 2 tournies for like 33k so.. meh i run good?

Re: biggest mtt downswing?

Nadir 1
-$28.0K
300 tournys
$244 abi
-115 buy-ins

Nadir 2
-$14.1K
196 tournys
$155 abi
-91 buy-ins

bur actually my worst period has to be this:

+$0.3K
523 tournys
$153 abi
+2 buy-ins

luckily i had a few upswings as well, and live results sometimes go opposite of online swings, but the life on an MTTer can be grim sometimes

Re: biggest mtt downswing?

assuming online only:

I've hit 20-30k a few times. To give you an idea of how retarded 100r variance is/how much Pstars is rigged, I also hit a $40k downswing in Stars $100rs alone, despite having an average buy in under 500 and being a lifetime winner of over 100% ROI even after the downswing.

Including big buy ins like $5k freezeouts and $25k HU, I've probably done over $50k. I think KUSH and AaronBeen have also had downswings of $20-$30k multiple times, and Aaron much bigger. It's pretty standard, although not usually in a single tournament. I think the best next to my rebuy run was when Aaron went something like 79 Stars $150s without one cash

when you come back in the country, you fill out a form and checkboxes, and one of the boxes ask if you have more than $10,000 on you. I reported no, and was lying. Aftre getting my luggage and upon leaving they made me go in this special line, searched my **** hardcore, every nook and cranny, every pants pocket, etc, and eventually found my money dispersed in random amounts throughout my luggage. I managed to get 4k euro by them but thats it. so after like 2 months they got the forms to me, i filled out the petition to get my money back, havent heard yet, wish luck.

edit* tbh, i wouldve gotten out of it fine, they wouldnt have found the money etc, had I not had "drug paraphernalia" on me... i had an empty tube, rolling papers, an automatic roller, all of which are totally paraphernalia imo... but i did have a grinder on me with some residue in it, so, gg me. bc of this they searched me more and the 2nd guys that searched me saw the bulk of the $ and then questioned it. the funny part is though, they thought i was an iraqi drug muel, kept questioning me about iraqis, how many iraqi friends i have, how many i live with, etc.

Can we please make this a more positive thread.... does anyone ever measure upswings? or are they usually only marked by one large score? I want to start playing MORE tourney poker, this thread is really making me not want to play...
