Haven't played poker for about 4 days. Decided to take a few days off, spent the weekend at a friends house just hanging out and it was really awesome spending time with her. Tuesday I'm back at the online poker tables from 10am to 10pm stretch figuring a couple of hours of breaks maximum during the day still gives me a 10 hour run bare minimum and a solid seven hours of that being spent 4 tabling $10NL. The further along in the months that we get the better it off I am regarding the shortened bankroll for this level. All I need to do is get myself to December and I should be able to run pretty smoothly as far as bankroll management concerns are, of course no guarantees as fasas profits considering the first 6200 hands.
Looking to get some input from some live no limit cash game players. In the first 6200 hands the main thing that I have noticed is wild swings comparatively speaking in buyins fluctuation. The first sessions ran pretty much consistent with a profit of $23 on that very first day, but that was only two and a half hours of play so I really can't get any determinations from something like that. Sessions 2, 3, & 4 we're all a minimum of 7 hours and some of them were over 9 and I notice massive fluctuations during the course of those days play. Day 2 was the smallest of these down 4 buyins and actually a little more towards the end I was able to recoup two of those buyins, but still a $20 loss for the day. Day 3, over the course of the first 3 - 4 hours, I was up $41 then I ran into some hideous both what I would call bad beats and unfortunate run ins and when the session ended I went from + $41 to down $16 for the day. Day 4 was a wild one as I went up about $12 and again due to bad beats and unfortunate run-ins was down in the neighborhood of $38 which in of itself is a 5 buyin fluctuation. The fluctuation continued when I climbed out of that hole and ended up making a $1.10 in the 1300 hands played. As you can see day 4 could be considered close to a 10 buyin fluctuation when you consider going from +$12 to -$38 to +$1.10. What I am interested to know is is this just something experienced online to this degree. Remember we cannot look at it for monetary value standpoint we must look at it as amounts of buyins. Do live players go through these kinds of fluctuations to this degree or is it just online players because I am getting 2000+ hands a day, which for a live player could easily represent a weeks worth of Poker. Anybody with any thoughts or opinions on this matter please leave a reply in the comments.
That's all for now. Going to try to get some sleep soon as I have the alarm set for 830am so I can get started by 10 a.m. . Looks like it's time to get back to work so yake care one and all, and I'll see you at the tables.
