      Ok guys so does this graph mean my game has some SERIOUS leaks or am i just not being patient enough ?

      I remember reading about a 300BB swing in FR games, guess now i have experienced that.

      I am just glad my $285 bonus is due soonish !

      Hi Eveilpopcorn,

      well I want to say that it's a downswing but to be honest it doesn't look like it is one. This doesn't mean that you have huge leaks but maybe you play too many tables at the same time. Tilt could be a very big problem as well if I see how much you lose in a hort time.
      Try playing just 4 tables and focus on your game.
      You should also try reaching silver to be able to read some advanced articles.

      I have cut down my tables by two and am now playing 10 tables. Feeling extremely comfotable. Even catch myself reading poker forums sometime lol

      Yes their are leaks in my game.
      No i dont tilt very easily

      I suspect my big downswings are a combination of a suboptimal game, minimal tilt at times and just running plain bad.

      The only thing i can work on is my game, and i am quite actively doing that.

      Just feeling frustrated and needed to vent. Posting a graph is how i vent.... lol

      Well with playing 10-12 tables (which is far too much in my opinion) your winrate will drop of course so your swings may be normal again. :)

      Thank goodness for PokerStars FPP i can cash in ! :D

      Still i firmly believe that i can with enough study and working on my game play 10 tables almost as well as i say if i was playing 4 tables. Alot of my lines are habit at the moment. Just need to make sure all my lines are optimal.

      I suspect i get a little over eager on my turn bets. Might be spewing there a bit.

      Is an TAF of 3.5 in FR a little too high ?

      2,5 should be better. :) Take more freecards, don't bluff opponents who call any turn anyway. Go for check/call instead of bet/fold with marginal hands.

      S you played a maniac style at NL? ;) (well the AF might be higher as you bet/fold more often at NL).
