      As long as you use BRM, the variance shouldn't matter to you ;) . Only the game matters, results don't. (Read the poker mindset).

      this is not variance, this is just a downward slop because of people making donkey plays and getting rewarded for it...

      P.S. where would you find the mind set article?

      And how is that different from variance ?(

      The poker mindset is a book. You can also just read our psychology articles in the strategy section.

      That's still variance. You need to run pretty much godlike to win a tournament, that's why it is advised to have an at least 100BI BRM for the MTTs (and as someone in a post one day mentioned, even 100BI is actually too little, 200BI would be better).

      Best regards,

      +1

      If you use proper BRM in theory you should not go broke because you would have gone down in stakes. You are playing SSS when the minimum is 40BB buying and sss does not work.

      I play mostly rush and I have made quite a bit but I play a lot more hands than you.

      If you play a lot the reg will realise that you play only premium hands and will only play even better hands.

      I also read recently that the better you play the more bad beat you will encounter. so you should be happy. That is because a bad beat only happens when you are winning when you put your money in and the odds are favourable to you and you opponent catch up. Therefore the more often you are ahead the less often you can "bad beat" your opponent, and the more opportunity your opponent has to bad beat you. (I think it was in the theory of poker (Slansky))

      Therefore if you were playing perfectly and always made the right action the bad beat would always ocure against you and never in your favour :) .

      If you had allowed enough bank roll to never go broke you would have found that it all balances out. after nearly 400k hands on NL10 Rush MSS my rockets AI preflop have won exactly 80% of the time.

      same here man.. 3500+ entries, 7500 rebuys, 2000add-on's
      300 players left, i'm at top 50 with a quite big stack and this is what follows..
      early potition raise from me with KK . i get 2 callers
      flop: 10 10 3 i bet half size pot and a bigger stack calls my bet.
      turn: K i check in order to induce a bluff, and the guy donkbets me 2BB's
      i minraise him and he goes all in ofcourse i call him! and he shows me quads!!! ... i reach quite often high places in all theese mtt's guarantee tourneys so i will go on trying to get to the final table!
      (the tourney i was refering was a 32k guarantee rush)


      ps: is there any article about any differentiations some1 has to include to his playstyle when playing rush mtt's instead of normal ones?

      or if your only playing QQ+, your probably playing too tight, and the blinds are killing you.... check out your red line for proof

      Wow....FullTilt can really get me worked up! Had 20$ on my account and decided to play the NL5 Rush. Got dealt AA 4 times and lost every singel one! All in one session. 3 of them to KK (2 was a 4 card flush - 1 hit his set on the flop) and one to 77 (set).....SO SICK! Guess it's just variance but never had this happen to me before. Should mention that villain instigated the preflop all-in...Busted my entire bankroll in less than 2 hours. Played well (ok...some bad plays....saturday after all...) but got sucked out on over and over. Taking a break from FullTilt for a long time now. :baby:
