"downswings" and "upswings" opinions
I just wonder what your thoughts are on down swings and upswings in general.
There is a specific reason as to why I'm asking this and this is based on my recent experience in a down swing and then a sudden upswing.
As we all well know, your poker client or the deck of cards doesn't "remember" your down swings or upswings or give you a bad run of cards and say "ok, lets now give this guy his upswing"
Recently however, like I was saying I have been playing SnG's again in the MTT 18/45/90man format and was doing "ok" with gradual progress. I was mixing in 10c/25c and 50c SNG to build a BR again and move up in stakes for anyone wondering. I actually managed to move up to the $1.00 and $1.50 games I'm currently at, however
like you see with peoples graphs, when they hit a "downswing" it's quite a big bad run but then if they ride it out and don't tilt and just continue you grinding you always (if they are a winning player) without fail see a sudden spike in results going "your way"
It's the same every time, a massive downward spiral in your graph and you start questioning your game and then all of a sudden, 50 games in a row you cash and win 10 or whatever it may be. A massive ROI% for these games and it blocks out all your beats and suddenly you're in profit again.
I'm asking because I knew after a while I'd start wining again and this 50 buy-ins downswing was "ok" because I was getting my money in good for example and yes, it finally happened. I ran good, was hitting flop after flop, people was stacking me light when I picked up aces/Kings etc and everything has been fine, the last 50 games I just crushed but I wonder why/how it happens?
As you can see from my graph here, it's been a steady progress all the way through and boom I lose 50buy-ins. Believe it or not, I didn't tilt and I continue in the $1.00 games it really was just one session of 100 games and a net loss of $49.00..I didn't exactly tilt, might of tilted of a few buy-sin but not that many.
The following 2 days I've just grinded out 50games each day and first day won 20 buy-ins back and then the following day I played like literally 21 tournaments and won 50 buy-ins..
As I expect when I contiunue this, I expect a "steady eddy graph" but expect swings again, I just find it weird that in most cases you hit a big down swing then hit a big up swing with the same part of the graph, you don't really ever see a gradual "grind" back up it's just a sudden "boom".
Thoughts on downswings/upswings?
I'm just wondering if it's all physiological as we all know it doesn't "remember" whats happened in previous games but I find it with nearly everyons graphs two sudden spikes up and down within the same preriod. It's not exactly happened at the begining of the grah and then at the end, it's all within in the same time so to speak
