Re: biggest mtt downswing?

do lifetime downswings count as downswings?

Re: biggest mtt downswing?

Re: biggest mtt downswing?

~50k online with avg BI probably ~200 (includes like 10 or so bricked 1k's and lots of bad 150r's / 200r's / 500's)

currently ~55 from live with a few 5k's and lots of 1-3k's.

Re: biggest mtt downswing?

Probably around 100k online with some live. Ave buy in around 300. I'm pretty surprised a lot of the hs mtt grinders haven't had 6 figure downswings. They are definitely coming...

Re: biggest mtt downswing?

just started mtts this year again. But i just hit a downswing this past month for about 13k with an abi on stars for about 84$ and 99$ for tilt. This is my biggest downswing since i started playing tourneys again and i dont know when its gonna end but i can always fall back on smaller stakes if it gets tremendously bad.

one of the nice things about not being backed is just not counting. i play until i notice i have too much money online and then i take some out and keep playing. i dont really sweat it i just pretend it's a video game and keep grinding.
lol this is such a sick way to look at it. i like your style.

Re: biggest mtt downswing?

lol, not this thread again.

fyi:

after 3.5 years of profits, playing online mtts from jan until early june 09:

-24.126 K$
$158 ABI
-152 buy-ins
439 tournys

so that didn't work out too well so I went to vegas to play live:

Played 26
In The Money 1
Final Tables 1
Buy-Ins $33,710
Prizes $1,340
Profit -$32,370
ROI -96%

luckily i was staked for 60% of those live buy-ins (oops stakers), but nevertheless i haven't played a hand of poker in the 6 weeks since leaving vegas broke...

...and i (re)started working a real job for a living again last week!!!
