Bad down swing?

      What do people consider a bad downswing when playing the low stakes 6man sngs.

      I play around 30 games a day and have been winning over the last few months with the odd bad day but iv lost 6-7BI on 2 of the last 3 days.

      Maybe this is standard, just wanted some opinions.

      Cheers

      100 buy-ins downswings are common to regulars in those games! the bigger your %ROI is the less big your downswings will be overall

      6-7 BI downswings are nothing, even in cash games. Of course it sucks, but you must treat it as completely normal thing. And yes, you MUST do that :)

      Cheers for reply guys!

      My ROI is around 26% through 900-1000 games, though it took me the first 300 to break even after losing several bankrolls as I started out my online poker career.

      It's good to know this is standard and I managed to stop the rot last night so hopefully that downswing is over.
