I think that you are right, the more hands you play then variance becomes less of an issue. I am a big believer in saying that luck evens itself out over a period of time, so you just have to take the rough with the smooth

yep i agree too, the more volume you put in the more variance is reduced, though if you tilting you probably gonna lose your stacks faster. So it has a downside if you multi table a lot and has leaks, your leaks will multiply itself and you will get tilted by losing and can go bust from that. I am talking from experience here. Anyway have fun guys and crush those fishes out there!

Some poker formats (MTT´s) have bigger swings.

Some playstyles can result in bigger swings as well (3bet, 4bet a lot), if you don´t want such swingy game play a lower variance playstyle.

G'day mate

Ok as per your request I have waited one full minute.
I would like to point out that I hate waiting for most things.
I did so this time out of respect for a fellow mobster.

Yes I am a published writer.
My very first published writings was published way back in 1990 if memory serves correctly.
I also then had 12-15 short story sections published in 1998-2000 in the UNB Brunswicken.
The Brunswickan is Canada's oldest official student publication. It's been around since 1867. Sections cover not only news, but sports, health, opinion, and arts and culture and provides a place for writers to hone their skills.
I have also been offered two book publishing deals in the last 5 years both of which I turned down because they were not good deals for me personally.
Currently I have been offered a new deal to publish the book I am supposed to be writing now.
I have complete the first six chapters and 7, 8, & 9 are all partially finished.
Have not been able to write lately do not know why.

Yes I am considered by several people to be a semi-pro poker player right now.
For 18 months back in 2006 & 2007 poker was my only income source and I did pay all my bills with poker winnings. I no longer do so now however and do not play any where near as much poker as I once did.

Hope this answers your questions.
Long message for 10 mob points Shock

be cool

Hi Ronin,

For example sharkscope graphs, names, ect.

Don't be so offended if you told the truth. Frankly I was curious since your body of work here is posting pictures of naked girls, telling us about which dressing you ate your garlic fingers with today and sometimes babble about 'bankroll management and more'.
And why would a semi-pro waste his energy and time coming here doing that things I mentioned above is still beyond me.

I was thinking a little bit the same.
Also a semi knows his ICM play for sure, i remember Ronin folding AA/AK/AQ/KK/QQ just to get into the money in tourneys, thats insane for a semi.
Also Ronin goes busto over and over for what i read at times so this also is a little strange for a former semi, imo for a semi its very easy to build a roll, question is when this happens not if it happens.

But i dont have info to know his semi story is fake so cant jugde it really, on the other hand Ronin has stats/graphs to back up his semi pro story so he can just put it life Thumbs Up

Btw the tits part i do like Tongue
When i played 8 hours a day and people knew i was making money and constantly win, it attracks women/girls, it was a very fun time i cud talk for ages, many many things happen Worship Worship

No dude I was not offended. I was really trying to be funny. I swear the entire waiting for one entire minute things was ment as humor. In regards to looking at my stats I am on opr or at least I was before. The last time I looked it was sadly out dated and only showed about 15% of the actually games I played because it does not track most things I play like ring games if memory serves.
But I am pretty certain if you look up my name on opr acrossed the 6 sites that should be listed there you would see that since 2004 when I start using the online name of Ronin Harper I have never had a losing year over all.
Also when it comes to live play there is no graphs sorry.
You can beleave me or not it really matters not.

I just want to ask you one question.

"Are you not entertained?" gladiator quote, you got to love that movie Smile

be cool

I am exactly the opposite.

Instead of falling in a trap of unsafe bankroll management, I will sometimes be way too carefull.

yea i think im way too careful with my br too. I mean i started at freaking $20 (which is actually a part of money i cashed out of winner poker, and i got that br for free too from brm...) and at some point i was sitting at healthy 120-ish BI. I did transfer some to ftp, cashed out some and then again i got to 80 or so BI before taking a break.

But i only played micro zoom (the microest of them all, with occasional NL5 sessions) and never actually dared to play anything higher than that, even if i got all that money basically for free. But its probably because zoom can be a bitch, and it didnt do much to encourage me to try higher limits, lol. Besides, all that time i knew ill have to hit downswings at some point (and i did hit a few), plus i wasnt really convinced im a good player either, lol and i still believe part of it is to me being relatively new to stars.

speaking of which, i defo think you need a bit more conservative brm for zoom, and not only that, after playing so many hands i also firmly believe making money zooming is actually much slower, unless you are one of those that play 24 tables at a time and can cover that difference

im still a relative begginer, but i strongly believe wr in zoom is at least 1/2 of wr at normal tables, but i got no numbers to cover it up because i havent played that many non zoom tables in the past. but for someone like me, who can play 3-4 tables tops normal tables seem like a better choice.

also i like your blog, so hope you continue with it for your next br challenge.

The bad thing about zoom is, that you can´t play just the bad players, in a regular ring game you can choose a table where you think there are the worst players, but in zoom you are constanty re-seated and only sometimes you get lucky to be seated with a bad player.

One should only try to understand the variance of the game with a big number of hands played, otherwise those numbers won't be giving any clue about how the game is running for that player. About your challenge, it didn't run the way you hoped for but it wasn't that bad either so i guess you and your partner shouldn't be disapointed when looking forward to the next challenge you will be launching soon!

Even if you play big numbers of games, you will feel the variance quite significantly.
The downswings will be the same amount of money as if you played only 1 game a day.
The difference would only be in the length of the downswing period, a 5 hours/day player will experience several down and upswings in a shorter time than somebody who plays less. For a less frequently playing player will be the downswing period much longer and therefore it can feel worse for him.
