      Unfortunately I am not aware of any active discussion groups in the english community atm.
      Hopefully you will be able to find some people to discuss poker anyways.

      If you have any specific strategy questions feel free to ask them here in the forum. You should also try posting hands in our hand evaluation forums. That way you should be able to get the answers you are searching for.

      Regards,
      Asaban

      Several hundret BI swings aren't uncommon in MTT's.
      I don't want to give out any exact numbers regarding my personal results.

      Never really played the 45men. Therefore I can't really give you a solid number.

      These kind of swings seem relativly normal.

      Sorry that I couldn't help you more.

      in 45 man turbo $3.50 it's possible to have a 100 BI downswing, but 30-40 is more normal.

      I have overall 10% ROI in the $3.50's over about 8k tournaments so far. there are many bad regs knocking each other out but because it's so shallow on the FT, luck really takes over.

      I find many people call far too loose on the FT.

      Hey Pokerlogy,

      Thiis a blog by a friend of mine and fellow 45 manner shanesmith, I,ll Play Anything Challenge - :P

      I've linked you to a post where he started a 1k game challenge with a 31BI downswing. I would also recommend reading it from the start. There is some interesting stuff in there.

      Downswings of 50+ BIs are fairly common and they can really blow out if you don't have a solid mindset.

      Regards

      Laz
