      -9BI on NL10 in 500 hands. Twice.

      Happens at any level huh?

      OK how about some upswings? I personally weathered my downswings, and successfully analyzed/corrected any tilting/leaks. My BR has since recovered and is once again steadily rising.

      Funny, my best upswing is +9BI on NL10... go figure.
      With that in mind we can expect teslasecretweapon to go on a huge upswing very soon. Go get em tiger! :D

      Biggest downswing is 7BI on NL20 on titan...first real downswing i've had, and still the donkeys friend at the moment..will update when the upswing starts!!

      ps. the 7BI is after some relief from the rakeback at titan, actual downswing is closer to 9BI

      im currently at -7BI on FTP and it looks like its still going down =( unfortunately i wont get anything back from rakeback as i cant retrack this account lol. i ran into AA literally 4 (with QQ, AK, and 2x JJ) times in 6min while playing 5 tables.

      I did have a +6BI streak just before this downswing so i guess it's sort of even.

      still down about 12 SnG BIs though =( (usually where i make most of my money)

      PS. after how long of a downswing in your sessions do you decide to just get up n stop playing for a little while? do u play for set times regardless of swings and just control your tilt if its bad or call it quits for the day?

      *update =D* down -15BI on NL25. I've never copped so many bad beats in a row and never seen so many pocket AA in my life. my QQ lost to 77 then again to 33 and 99. My 99 lost to 88, AK lost to KQ. and i love ppl limping with AA when i have KK =(

      So what BRM do you use? Do you stick to 30BI rule or do you use more like 50?

      TTT

      P.S.: Yesterday got -3BI on BSS - one all-in with K full of A against royal flush... lol ;)

      I use the 40 BI BRM, but on the higher limits I will use more.
      I had over 60BI when my downswings began. Now I have maybe 40BI

      I'm playing at NL10, and just had a 15 BB downswing, got back 8 BB in the next 300 hands, then lost another 7 BB in the next 700.. Variance is a b**ch

      I'm only made $25 from NL10, over 21k hands.. this sucks.
