Define what a downswing is to you
are you a multi-table tournament player? If so, please tell us, what a downswing is to you...I'm interested to know if anyone ever goes on a downswing the likes of which you never ever thought possible given what you've seen your opponents do.
For me personally, I'm not really on a downswing, because I am gaining ground overall, but VERY VERY slowly, and the one site that would keep me in business is the one I can't win on. For me "keeping in business" means to have enough tourneys in a day to be playing 4 or 5 tables at a time, maybe twice a day and total about 20 tourneys a day, a very modest goal considering some of you play more like 30-40 tourneys a day and 50 on Sunday.
