re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

my favorite winning session ever, not because of the $ amount but because of how ridiculous it was, how many hands I needed to win, and because I had the full amount in front of me in $1 chips, was a time where I won $1600 at the $40 max buy-in $1/$2 at commerce. this was before i knew what a color up was so I ended up walking to the cage with 8 racks in each hand.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

All of these at 1/3 NL live:

Biggest session: $2218 in ~10 hours in July 2013 (other than having it in my records and knowing I did in fact do this, I have zero recollection of how I actually did it). My next biggest session is $1598, so my largest session is 39% larger than my second largest session. Interestingly enough, the previous session I booked my 6th biggest win of $1492 over ~7 hours, which means in back-to-back sessions in July 2013 I booked $3710 over ~17 hours. Ah, the good'ol days, although somehow this year in April I booked my 4th biggest win of $1537 over 10.5 hours (an anomaly for me nowadays).

My biggest win streak was 15 in row, from Feb - May 2013, where I won $5676 over ~138 hours @ $41.01/hr.

My biggest heater was Oct - Dec 2012, where I won $8553 over ~144 hours @ $59.50/hr.

Those two heaters are all within my best 1000 hour stretch, where over 118 sessions / ~1013 hours I won $38895 to the tune of $38.37/hr from May 2012 - Apr 2014. This overall stretch really stands out as an anomaly on my overall giraffe, but lol @ 1000 hour sample sizes, amirite? ETA: Looking at my overall record as of today, this means that 40% of my overall winnings came in this 21% of overall play time period.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Biggest wins huh?

$1/2 PLO: $1880 over 5.3 hours (2/'19) My top 7 winning sessions are all PLO.
$1/2 NLHE: $1130 over 3.2 hours (5/'14)

How about biggest losses?

$1/2 PLO: -$800 over 6 hours (11/'18) Think that was McGregor / Mayfield fight night and a crazy game.
$1/2 NLHE: -$800 over 6.3 hours (4/'12)

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Biggest losses in 1/3 NL live:

In 605 sessions, I've lost over $1000 twice. First time was June 2011 where I lost all $1200 I had brought with me (the last two BIs were abortions on my part). I rectified that by since always bringing $2000 to the poker room and being very cognizant of the importance of not tilting off good $$$ after $$$ (I was still relatively new to NL and the importance of this really sunk in with this loss / my play). In March 2015 I lost $1013 (in a session I felt I played fine).

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Biggest heater was begging of last year. 37 sessions, 75 hours, $154/hr, 37.7 BB/hr of mostly 2/5 and some smaller games mixed in for a total of $11,538.

Longest streak was 14 sessions in a row, almost matched that recently but ended that streak at 13 last month.

Largest single sessions scores are not impressive since I usually cut and run after a double up+ but the last couple of years I've been pushing the wins further on occasion depending on how much time I have.
1/2 - $1,354
1/3 - $1,435
2/5 - $1,799

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

My past ~2.3k hrs. Probably coming off my biggest heater now, right after a terrible downturn/BE stretch. Past 500 hrs are half 5/5, half 5/10. Everything before is mostly 5/5. (To be honest, I have 1.1k hrs before this, but they're mostly BE because I played BE. Just look at the HH I used to post)

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances



Since May 2017, > 90% 1/2 and 1/3. Rest 2/5 and 5/5.

Breakeven means between -$50 and $50. Interesting how I have 35% sessions that are straight up losing. I usually end the session if I'm down more than two buy ins unless I have a very good reason not to. From the graph, it looks like I was running good until about 900 ish hours in. A brutal break even stretch followed and it was in Vegas during last years WSOP which was very tilting since I was expecting to have a higher than normal win rate during that time.

Biggest Wins:

1/2: $1500
1/3: $1900
2/5: $1050
5/5: $800

Biggest Losses:

1/2: -$710
1/3: -$690
2/5: -$900
5/5: -$890

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Biggest 2/5 win so far was only $3500. I don’t buy in super deep and I tend to lock up wins.

Biggest heater was when I won ~22,000 in five weeks this June and the first week of July playing 2/5.

Biggest single loss was ~$1800. I’ve lost that amount two or three times this year. Biggest downswing was ~$3500.

I don’t have very big swings, my results month to month are abnormally consistent.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

I play short sessions, so my per sessions results are going to be smaller. My average session is 3 hours. All at 1/2.

Win: $1090
Loss: -$684

When I look at consecutive sessions, its a bit better. I am in the middle of my biggest heater right now. My last 5 sessions were all wins, totalling 16 hours, and up $2365. I hope I can keep it going.

Twice I have had stretches of 4 straight losing sessions, both losing a bit over $1200. My biggest peak to valley downswing was almost $1400.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

My biggest downswing was $4.5k playing a lot of 5-card PLO. Single-session loss was over 24 hours, $1,800 playing very badly at 1/3. Biggest win was $2,500 (also 5-card).

do you mind explaining how you're able to do that?

once I sit down at the tables all semblance of time disapears and i'm there until noticeably fatigued or more probable, the game breaks

if i got back into heavy grinding i definitely want to do shorter sessions but can imagine i'll keep finding excuses to stay and keep playing

Im married with 3 kids and a full time job with the nearest room almost an hour away. I typically play Mondays. I get the kids in bed by 8, at the room by 9, play til 12, and in bed at 1 so i can get up at 6:30 for work. 1 day a week of that is all Im good for. Weekends are typically family time but if its slow I might be able to get in another short Friday night session.

Any tips on getting through breakeven stretches?
I’m grinding through one the last few hundred hours and it’s getting to me.
Amazing results btw Quantum. I’m very impressed.

I used to be a marathon sessioner. Like 8hrs was the minimum where I felt like I even played. And often I'd play 18-24hrs. Sometimes up to 36hrs.

But now a days I don't think I play longer than 6hrs at a time. Majority of sessions are 3-4hrs. I think I just get bored and then want to go do something else.

How do you guys have the endurance for that? At some point (and it's usually by the 12th hour or so) I don't care how good the game is I just wanna sleep. Your games must be randomly VERY good or you're some kind of machine.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

I also had a brief run as a marathoner in my early 20's. I'm not sure if I ever hit 36 hours, but 20 was not uncommon. Dealers would be like "weren't you just at this same seat yesterday?" and it took my a minute to realize that another day had passed.

Poker had this weird ability to make me lose all track of time. I rarely got sleepy at the table. There were several others in the room that were notorious for playing those kinds of hours. Poker is like the only thing that has ever had that sort of hold on me. I'm not sure what it was.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Yeah I eventually accepted what I'd end up doing and started booking my hotel room for every other night and would leave my stuff behind the front desk and check out and then get my stuff back and check in again in 24-36 hours or so - it was annoying, but less annoying than paying for an unused bed.

I wouldn't get or feel tired so long as I was able to lie to myself and convince myself that I was still making rational decisions I'd keep playing

That was in my 20s though, late 30s noe and not sure if I could still do... But then again I just did a marathon one recently but that was largely because was waiting for my flight and airport was 10 minutes away but last few hours was definitely aware I was losing my edge and the chair was hurting my back

Now get off my lawn

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

I also have always played long games, for several reasons. One of the most important ones is that i am pretty certain my edge gets bigger after couple of hours of play cause i get even more in depth developed reads on my opponents, and i feel more and more in the zone the longer i play up until 3-4 hours.

Ive also always felt and known the importance of logging lots of hours in order to smooth out variance as much as possible, so the motivation to play long hours have always been with me since ive started playing.
