Re: $8 180 players and $3R+

Is there any chance we can clarify pstars mostly played 180mans and other MTTSNGs, stick it all in a sticky thread in regards to the bankroll management becuase i for one have come looking for this info realising applying SNG broll of 100Bis simply is not enough here.

There is alot of confusion on this and it would really help if a great player coudl clear this up for us.

Re: $8 180 players and $3R+

as mentioned in other posts im a good player, but ive busted loads of 50/100 BI rolls on these.
Not sure, never played them really but one could say one has a larger edge when deepstacked. Hence, higher ROI and less variance.

In a month i play a ~1k games and ~500 in the second example.
May we have a small bankroll for the 2nd cenario? If i play less tables my focus is higher...
Well obviously higher focus will result in an higher ROI% and prolly in less variance. But i dont think this will affect your swings thát much to lower your brm from 200 to 100bi's or someth. like that. :P


@ Matt wolfe? In whose? 3rs? Seems pretty standard 150bi swingy.

Re: $8 180 players and $3R+

3rs and 8s only (never filtered for them individually, but i think my 8s will be a lot bigger than my 3r), ye guessing it is normal, had loads of 1k downswings in them, but 1.8k just felt brutal

Re: $8 180 players and $3R+

150 buyin downers/session can occure, if you run really bad. So I guess you were running more than good to only have 30-40 ABI downswings.

Re: $8 180 players and $3R+

A fair amount of misinformation in here. If you look at any regular grinder's 180 graph with a large sample, they will have multiple 200+ bi downswings, and some will have 300+ bi downswings.

Anyone playing a mix of 3rs and 8s without 3k+ is tempting fate. I'd even recommend more, because very few people can continue to play poker unaffected when faced with losing 3/4's of their bankroll.

at LEAST lol ?? just no.

yes, of course that happens

u say it like its a guarantee for every 180 man grinder to go on a at least one 200+ bi downswing per 2k game month, which is just not true.

that obv doesnt mean that its uncommon to go on 200-300 buyin downswing

90-125 bi downswings are quite ocasional at 2.5s even when ur crushing them with 35+% roi.

Recommend 200bi's for 2.5s (e.g. $500); 200 abi for 3rs (e.g. ~2.4k) and 300 for 8s (e.g. $2,4k) if u play them without mixing in 2s.
I'm confused. What's the difference between a losing streak and downswing?

I think 125 BI downswing on 2.50 180s is really big. That's $312,5 and should be even normal you say? Really I never experienced anything like that. I also play only 50 180s a day, maybe that's the difference?

Re: $8 180 players and $3R+

Losing streak is literally how many games can you play in a row without cashing. I guess typical numbers can't really exceed 40 or so. It's pretty meaningless though.

Downswing is peak - trough of graph.

As for the original question, depends completely on your win rate. At a 2% ROI play with no fewer than 1,000BI. At 20%, 200 should be enough. If you're still experimenting with these, take the numbers posted ITT and add some.

Re: $8 180 players and $3R+

I have about 20k 180s logged at ~$8 average stake (and 10K MTTs ~$10 average stake). I wouldn't feel completely comfortable without a 5k roll, especially if you're mixing in MTTs.

This is probably pretty conservative, but a 500 BI downswing will happen for most everyone at some point playing this sort of schedule. I would just control your average BI by mixing 2.50s, 8s, 3r, and smaller MTTs to maintain at least 500 BI. Moving to 15s and 35s and bigger MTTs as you progress.

Just my .02, GLHF

Re: $8 180 players and $3R+

I used to check my sharkscope everyday.Don't do that is bad.Only look at your stats when on an upswing.That way you can trick your brain that your always winning.
I just did 400BI. downswing at $2.50 180's. Didn't affect me as i didn't look at stats until i was winning.

2.5 180 best ROI

Yo,

Just wondering whats the best possible sustainable roi in the 2.5 180.

I have ~45% in 3.1k sits.

Regs with the higher rois over large samples?

Thanks

Re: 2.5 180 best ROI

that's impressive 45% roi but still can be lots of positive variance..
If u have like 10 k games and ur still around 45% then i think u have one of the highest roi's from anyone who grinds these games in 2013
I think over a larger samples around 35 and maybe 40%roi is sustainable.

Re: 2.5 180 best ROI

yeah people will tell you that its not sustainable, it obv is, but there is a difference between $/hour and roi.

you cant play 16+ tables and maintain 40%+ roi

but it is better to play 16 tables with 25-30% than it is to play 6-8 with 45%

and you wont see too many 10k+ games players who crush 2.5s because they move up in stakes.

3.5 rebuys plays almost as soft as 2.5 and the hourly will skyrocket.
