      i've been on a break even session for about 3 weeks
      and i can't stand it!
      the and luck must hate me

      to give you an example:

      Full Tilt Poker Game #4824696162: $6 + $0.50 Sit & Go (Turbo) (36627018), Table 1 - 150/300 - No Limit Hold'em - 20:40:40 ET - 2008/01/11

      Pairdrawer65 zet de small blind in van 150
      JuanTaboneya zet de big blind in van 300
      De knop is bij plaats 8
      *** HOLE KAARTEN ***
      Gedeeld aan Pairdrawer65 [9s 9c]
      mrzigs gaat mee met 300
      aardvark5 gaat mee met 300

      Pairdrawer65 verhoogt naar 1,525, en is all-in
      JuanTaboneya past
      mrzigs verhoogt naar 2,165, en is all-in
      aardvark5 past
      IchySack past
      mrzigs toont [8c 8s]
      Pairdrawer65 toont [9s 9c]
      Niemand meegegaan met inzet van 640; gaat terug naar mrzigs

      mrzigs wint de pot (3,950) met three of a kind, Achten
      Pairdrawer65 staat op
      *** OVERZICHT ***

      Stoel 7: aardvark5 gepast voor de Flop
      Stoel 8: IchySack (knop) gepast voor de Flop

      this is like the quadrilliont time my overpair gets cracked by a set when pre-flop all-in.
      its driving me crazy and my bankroll doesn't seem to like it asswell.
      went from 230$ to 90$ to 260$ to 180$

      anyway just wanted to get it out, maybe now i will have more luck or something i don't know...
      because if i don't i am about to go on an extreme tilting session and loose all my money

      you don't have the bankroll to play these s&g's, especially since they are turbo's. These things are happening to me all the time, you don't know what a bad beat is. Just had aces cracked by QTo (great call), after it went all in preflop. Get used to it, s&g's are EXTREMELY swingy. I use 100buy ins for these turbo's.

      I agree i would stop playin these sit and goes and maybe move down to lower buy in sit and goes if you think this is your best game. I would make sure i had atleast 50 buy ins to play any level of sit and go, maybe more if they were turbo. That means you should at least have a bankroll of $300 to play these tournaments.

      well actuelly...

      the bankroll management for SNG is (atleast) 30 buy-ins. it says so in the strategy page.
      i know the swings are huge. but i feel very comfatable at these limits with my bankroll.

      anyway that's not the reaspm why i posted this.

      Doesnt have to do with the fact that u feel comfortable or not, it has to do with the fact that turbo's are huge variance. Turbo's are full of marginal preflop all in spots.

      long time since i read it, but anyway. Pokerstrategy should hush, since i think that is a bad plan. Regular 50 Buy ins is an absolute minimum, and for turbo you want to have at least 60-70. You swung down to 90, so you have to realize that this is very dangerous. 15buy in swings are everyday business, so you can go broke in two days/ two swings.

      Both hands are wp. But i don't see you post a lot in Unam's s&g sample hand board. Post more hands, especially ones you have doubts about. I play 16's, and Unam still helps me a lot.

      You are right. 50 buy-ins should be the minimum. We will publish new SNG articles very soon.

      Good luck at the tables!
