I would say the winrate gets higher along with the variance, the former due to higher concentration and the latter due to less volume in general
Can you explain this to me? I can't understand it because some words I am not able to translate like "former due" "latter due". "out of ruts"

And it does make sense to see getting better as an increase in hourly. But I think at the micro's its way more important to focus on the hands you play and the reason why you play them this way
It's so easy to forget the reason but memorize the play.

Good post, DK. I've been playing six tables too and feel a lot better about my game lately. Less spew, less "let's shove this draw cause there's another table blinking" and a lot more focus on every play. It gets really easier to explore the fishy players at the table when you have the time to watch how they play their hands.
Right, you improve in hand reading too because you are following other hands that are being played way more too.
Last session I saw a leak of a regular I really didn't notice before

With 12+ tabling you are just going to miss a lot that goes around on the table. Maybe thats made up for because you play more tables thus your winrate is higher, Idk.

For people that want to improve a lot, are running bad or lose focus to soon I really would advice to play waaay less tables
I've been running bad lately for about a week, haven't been able to get anything to go right. I took last night off and went out and got drunk for the first time since NYE.

I'm a little hungover today so I didn't really want to play too much but I started chasing a fish that someone posted about in a 50nl game (25nl is my normal game but I remember Digger suggesting to try playing one table of a higher limit to get out of a funk so I thought I'd try this).

I made 2/3 of a buy-in from said fish so I thought I'd dabble a little more with 50nl. I played one table and I thought, Ok I'll open 2. I did that for a while and after about 1-2 hrs, I decided I can 4 table and still pay good attention so thats what I've been doing.

So far so good.

Been there bought the Tshirt. Poker is actually the reason why I quit drinking for now. Wanted to be able to focus mentally and drinking + hangover = way too big of a time leak.

However after not being able to get my mind right for over a week, I had to try something different.

I drink to get drunk, so when I drink again, I'll be getting drunk. However, the days of getting drunk for days on end are over.

And it does make sense to see getting better as an increase in hourly. But I think at the micro's its way more important to focus on the hands you play and the reason why you play them this way
It's so easy to forget the reason but memorize the play.


Variance itself will not increase, but perceived variance will increase. The micro stakes player who posts on here who plays 20k hands a month will have more perceived variance since his or her breakeven stretches will last longer since their volume is low. Whereas the grinder who plays 100k hands will get through a rough patch much quicker.

I don't think increasing hourly is the best strategy for the micro player, especially the micro player intending to move up.

Ya. At one point I moved all my play to live, and that's one of the reasons I moved back to online. Variance is variance, but at 30 hands per hour, take a couple sick beats and it'll take months of grinding to make it back. When you're racking up the hands, you can grind it back in hours or days, and the same run of variance drifts into the background.

Perceived variance. I like.

I'm at a little warm-up carnival home party atm and hope I can post before anyone realizes that I'm sitting here and not just browsing random stuff.
There's four girls with me, no other guys and one of them is the girl I'm into. We're preparing to go out and are like 2/3rds drunk already. I'm dressed up as a king, she's dressing up atm.

uNL, what's my play?
