The variance influences different skill levels. it is normal for a winning player to lose for a certain period of time and others or suffer too much from it. the lower the bb / 100 the greater the sample. So 100k hands can be very much to some, or little to others. I usually rate 100k hands as a good number, but it can easily be more than that depending on the field and player level.
I always welcome a good discussion on variance in poker, but what exactly do you mean by ` suffer from too much of it? `

I would agree with this statement. If your playing 100k+ hands a month and a high stake reg variance will hit you a lot harder than a rec player that only plays 10k hands at micro stakes.

we are all hit by this situation, the more tournaments and hands you have, the greater the variance, the only thing you can do is try to avoid hitting you a lot, that's what the pro games do

Plus, you may want to rewrite your post, particularly the second sentence. It is grammatically tangled beyond the bounds of comprehension, and could mean any number of things, but as it stands,
it is normal for a winning player to lose for a certain period of time and othersor suffer too much from it.
certainly does not mean anything at all. Come on, dude. You mean to tell me that you reread what you had written, were satisfied you had got your meaning across clearly, and pressed post?

regardless of skill level, variance will affect everybody in one way or another. Some people will run like gods when they first play only to later realise that they are nowhere near as good as they thought they were. The same can be true for people who run very badly when they start out. Often beginners end up just giving up because they keep 'being so unlucky'. Sometimes this is the case however usually a beginner does just not understand variance or tilt for that matter.
