Look at that ugly downswing from $40k back to around $10k or so... I'd sure like to get the story on that. Good on him for overcoming it though!
How does one hit a 30k downswing like that following his strict BRM rules? That's 75% of his bankroll. Is it really possible to encounter that much variance? Or is it really possible that Ferguson went off his BRM plan, went on tilt and donked it off?
Neither of the two scenarios seem that plausible, but if I had to choose one of the two to believe it would be that even with strict BRM losing 75% of your bankroll is possible.
Which is simply terrifying to me.
