Yep I do the same thing. If I had to guess my biggest downswing is like 30k playing up to 100r and 500 but it might be a lot more or less than that. I don't actually keep track.

Re: biggest mtt downswing?

I can see it being a big number. In the past 2 weeks alone I went on a $10k heater (just over 100 ABI) from putting in a lot of volume. Luckily ft'd a few things last couple of days, but if I hadn't I could easily be down another $10k at least by next week if I get the volume in that I'm planning.

I'm not sure what my worst online downswing was, nothing terrible given the sheer quantity of tables, grinding, and style I played for so long prevented anything from being too nasty.

I know that I reached a bit over $140,000 in make up through predominately live poker at buy ins ranging between $1000 and $10000.

Edit: Just realized this thing is super old and I'd basically posted the same **** in it before. I was wondering why a badass like Blizair was concerned with such a small swing.
