Today i bought into a $6000 rebuy for my last $3.
I finished like 83rd out of 845 and got paid $15.75.
After making a few bucks at cash tables, i was at $46 and i bought into a 30-man $5 SNG.
I won that SNG for $60.
While i was doing that i sat down at a 6-seat $0.50/$1 NLH with $30...

...I just left that table with $346 and i didn't rebuy once.

So from my last $3 i have made a $422 bankroll all in about 4-5 hours or so.
Cha-Ching.

I don't agree with Teteban. Of course, variance always plays a role in our results, but having this run of results cannot ONLY be attributed to variance, nor can it ONLY be attributed to luck.

Variance is getting the fashion word in poker lately, I have the feeling. It's becoming the magic word to explain ANY kind of (series of) results, good AND bad. Mostly, they use it as a convenient excuse for a series of losses, but this is really the first time I have seen anybody use it as a way to account for a series of WINNINGS Big Smile This only goes to show that poker players are a very weird breed of people who hardly ever get things like "well played" over their lips. If they win, it's their skill that's used as their explanation, but if they lose, it's never the mistakes they made or just plainly bad play. THEN there's suddenly talk of variance and all kinds of other "explanations" (call it excuses as far as I'm concerned).

So let's be honest here : a progress like this CAN be due to luck, CANNOT be attributed to variance, but the most likely explanation is just plainly (for the biggest part - we all know luck plays a tremendous role in poker, but then again... "every hand's a winner, and every hand's a loser" Blink that it's the consequence of DAMN GOOD PLAY ! Thumbs Up

So... WELL DONE, Btown. you did a hell of a job Blink
CONGRATS is the best thing to say.

LMAO, I just read a thread on BSS & SSS and you're post their was all about how the key to succesful poker is patience and GOOD BANKROLL MANAGEMENT.

Then someone comes here and mentions what OP has done can only be attributed to variance as a result of BAD bankroll management and you jump on it with this reply. WTF

Whilst OP obv didn't play a bad game, if you sit down at nl100 with most of your roll ($30) there's a pretty good chance you're going to lose it, no matter how well you play, you can get your chips in on a 90% fav flop and get out drawn and bam it's gone. That is why good BRM is important, it's not about how good you play, it's about being able to survive a downswing where you loser a bunch of allins that were in your favour as well as the ones that weren't. As apposed to the good times when you win the ones you're ahead in and pickup a few lucky draws when you were behind as well Smile

Well done OP and congrats. but believe me, I play like you, with no respect for BRM (I try and lasts about an hour lol) and I swing from $20 to $1000 constantly. Take it from me, if you shoot up to $400+ with no BRM you drop back just as quick, you'll end up dropping to $200 or something and figure "OK I'll sit @ $1/$2 table and just play real careful" next thing you know you're allin pre-flop with AA and they get cracked, can't fault your play but you now have $0 bankroll.

Thanks for the comments.
I thought I'd add that I'm calling it a day and my bankroll is at $695
Just had a great session. After initially losing $80, I played at 2 tables, profiting $150 on one, and $200 on the other.

lol this all reminds me of exactly how I play, if your roll is/was only around $500 and you're playing to tables the get you $150 on one and $200 on other, then i am guessing you're still playing NL/50c/$1 ?? Lol - i do this and believe me, no matter how high your roll goes, it all comes crashing down as soon as you swing the other way.. Good luck keeping it, seriously. But consider dropping your limits drastically. Or face the consequences.

Very nice, but I think you were just lucky, personally I wouldn't have don it, only thirty blinds is asking for troubles, one raise and a call from you could be enough to be broke.
But anyway very nice, hope you'll manage to keep your winnings..

Wow thats a pretty sick heater to go on. Ive heard of people running on a "rampage" like this before where they buy in short to NL25, soon as u hit a certain amount move it all to NL50, then NL100 etc etc ofcourse you have to be very lucky not to bust out early, but ive also read of people hitting $5K+ from starting with only that $15 that they put on the first table. Pretty sick but you're also bound to have a downswing sooner or later & without bankroll management you'll be very lucky not to go busto! Either way, well done sir took that $3 far!
