Just been thinking lately and wondering why variance seems to come in waves. Like you will have a week downswing or something and when it comes it seems to stay for a while never just for a few hands. Just seems that when I bad run happens it runs the full 100metres before it goes away?
And Im not talking about tilt, I mean card dead/variance
