Some background first. I follow very tight BRM guidelines. As a result, my BR variance is very humdrum, regardless of whether I'm winning or losing. My profit on positive days is usually between $20-$60 and my losses on bad days is usually between $5-$30.
Now, I know this isn't a new idea, but I've recently thought that on my winning days I could take 50% of my daily profit and play a single heads-up SNG at the end of the day. So, if I win, I'd be increasing my daily profit by 50%, and if I lost, I'd be cutting my daily profit in half.
I've got some recent experience playing heads-up SNGs (around the $5-$10 level), and although I'm not tearing them up, I've got positive ROI.
I'm wondering if this is too akin to "taking shots." I'm also a little worried if these big heads-up games at the end of the day are going to affect my game, and thus become less profitable than if I was just playing them normally.
Alternately, I could take that 50% profit and dump it in a more reliably profitable game, like a single-table SNG, or at a NL cash table and play for a specified time.
Has anyone ever done this kind of thing on a consistent basis, and what kind of results have you had? Anyone recommend trying this out, or does the plan seem flawed? Any feedback would be welcome.
