      Hello guys ! Can You share some experience about biggest break even in 6max cash games ? I never had so huge b/e. It's almost 100k hands if we look to EV. I played 12 tables mostly, thought that's the problem. Now playing only 6, but that shit continues. Don't have many hands at stars, I was playing on ftp before, but there my biggest b/e was something like 40k hands over almost 1m hands. There's my graph.

      I'm no expert but unless you're like a huge winner at NL200 this can happen and is "standard".

      Plus your "true winrate" doesn't always stay the same.

      had the same on NL25 FR on stars over 110K hands, although i was beating the level over 300k hands on 3BB/100. i played 18 tables. just couldn't do anything right. but it turns around eventually...

      Rakeback?

      From my own experience I can say that variance in sh games is absolutely sickening, especially if you are not a risk aversive person. I play NL100, recently went up 40 BI in 20 000 hands, proclaimed myself a poker god, then lost 30 bi in 10 000 hands, felt like I want to cry and puke and puke while crying.

      Cliffs: this kind of shit is inevitable unless youre a full ring nit, if you can endure it you can make it.
