Man I saw the name and instantly thought of some one else,any one else pick that up?


Variance can run on and on,I didnt click on your graph cause Im trying to build up some restraint on clicking on things I shouldnt.

Im guessing the sample is smaller than 20k in hands if cash and less than 1k in tourneys.
Those are your baselines for seeing how you are running and its the very bottom.

Yeah I did a double look too at the name lol... thought we had a bird sighting and its tourney graph but broken down into hands played.... small sample, less than 10000 hands

I know that 100 or so games might seem like a lot but it is really really tiny when trying to figure out truly if you suck, or variance is getting you lol

Keep plugging away op and gl

Yeah sample size is too small to be certain of anything. It could be normal variance, but could just as easily not be. If your graph declined like that over 90,000 hands you could be confident that more than variance is to blame.
