I do think it's deeper, and yeah I think that impacts the hourly significantly, but I didn't think it was THAT much deeper. I've seen pretty deep stacks in games elsewhere too.

Except for those 5/10 games. Those are crazy.
The average BI for typical donks in your game is probably 2-3x bigger than the average BI of donks here at the same stake.

Is there a substitute app for Poker Journal for the Android phone? I can't find Poker Journal for the Android and want a good substitute to match it. Do I have a choice at all?

$2/5 at my casino is uncapped, but usually almost everyone has at least $500 in front.

I was going to initially call BS on this, but then I went over my own records and I'm not too far off.

Yesterday, I booked my 2nd worst session ever, a 2.95 BI (with BI = 100 BBs) loss (thanks in large part to running KK into AA twice in one session, something I've never done before). My single session record remains a 4 BI loss (2 BIs of which I blew off with very poor play).

So then I went over my worst "downswings" over my lol ~770 hr sample size at 1/3 NL. I've twice recorded 4.57 BI stretches, the first one over 3 sessions (one of which included my 4 BI session loss), the other over a 4 session losing streak (my record for number of losses in a row, which I've done twice). Only one other time have I booked a streak where I've lost more than 3 BIs (losing 3.15 BI in my other 4 session losing streak).

So, it's actually not as far fetched as I thought about never encountering a 3 BI "downswing", although it still seems a little unlikely.

1,000 doesn't seem that small. Compared to the number of hands you played online it is, but it would give you a true-enough idea that you can crush.
Also, I hadn't seen this graph get much love (golf claps) but it's hot.

Re: *** Official Winrates, bankrolls, and finances ***

I have a 720 hour sample. I have won money in 76% of my sessions and am a winning player.

The average length of my winning sessions is 3.9 hours while the average length of my
losing sessions is 4.4 hours. Do you guys think its a leak that I am staying at the casino
longer when I am stuck compared to when I am winning? And do you guys have the same leak?

.5 hour is what, 10 - 15 more hands? If it's a leak, it isn't much.

Re: *** Official Winrates, bankrolls, and finances ***

I only win 65% of my sessions, but I include changing stakes in one session as multiple sessions (ie. play at 1/2 while waiting for 5/10 seat)

I do this, too; it seems the only way that makes sense to me.

Re: *** Official Winrates, bankrolls, and finances ***

I find it almost impossible that anybody has ever had larger than a 3BI downswing over an extended period and think it is far more likely that they are benefiting from a sampling error where they are only sampling at the beginning/end of each cashout. There is a concept in electric engineering called the Nyquist Criterion where if we sample a signal incorrectly we will get a signal that looks similar but is incorrect (different frequency/amplitude) due to aliasing.

Re: *** Official Winrates, bankrolls, and finances ***

if we play longer to get "unstuck" our swings in the "real sense", if you were to keep track of it in poker tracker, would be the same but because we are measuring them from the time we buy in to the time we buy out we see much smaller swings in our graph

So you think we should be tracking each buyin instead of each session?

Re: *** Official Winrates, bankrolls, and finances ***

I don't think it really matters, just that it is like mathematically impossible to have only a 3 BI loss and it is much more likely that it is a measuring error

Whoops... Made two 900$ river bluffs in 5/10 that got hero'd. Why couldn't I just have value hands?

short sessions are great. i try to play 2-3 hours when i play now. it's improved my hourly tremendously (that and the heater i've been on).

you'll argue that i can't get reads on the table. right now, i get reads in two hands or so. plus there are a lot of people i recognize at the table so i have history on them.

two hours doesn't give them time to figure out how aggressive i'm being.

How long does it take you to get to/from the casino? Ever order any food? I would think these things would devastate the overall $$$.
