1. MTT variance is way (5 to 10 times) higher than cash game variance, as evidenced by the BR management recommendations that you noted.
2. Completely ignore EVERYTHING that you ever read from JamesMoroski. He is totally clueless (and almost certainly full of shit) and will teach you horrible habits/strategies if you let him.
3. I'd be willing to bet a large sum or money that you shouldn't be changing anything on weekends. Sure, you might have fared worse on weekends to this point --- but it's just a function of small sample size. Do not change your game, as you aren't ready for that yet. Keep doing what you're doing, and add hand review if you aren't currently doing that. Evaluate your play based on the decisions you are making, not your results. If you do that and consistently make better decisions, you will get to the point that your win rate is (roughly) the same every day of the week.
