I know this does not seem like much to people who grind online. However, it is a lot for me. Since then the most I will bring with me is $500. I don't like being stuck. I think it makes me play bad.
I don't know how people can just blow through 6 buy ins in 2 hours at live tables..... I would be sick to lose that much so quickly.
Well most people on CC are playing nano and micro limits, so $800 seems like a lot to a lot of people.
My worst online session was probably about -8 BI's, and live, -4 BI's. Also keep in mind that because it takes so long to get hands live, even though you play bigger pots on average, you will still tend to have bigger swings in a shorter time online.
