Awesome Streak Continues…

Good news I got in 18 hrs play at good games this month already. I wonged, I back counted, I played heads up too, spread as high as 25-1.. All good formulas for making \$\$ and in 9 sessions on deeply dealt DD and 6D I managed to leave a winner In 6 of 9 sessions!!

Results you say? Wait for it…..
An awesome -40 units.

So in around 100 hrs I have an awesome Loss of about what would amount to almost 1/2 of a full Kelly BR, without resizing of course.

I have been playing a lot lately with smaller bets then I even want to play with just to build up some confidence and learn to lose the emotional attachment to the \$ but this is starting to get stupid.

curious

What’s your Kelly fraction?

Can u add, do u add to bank?

Expenses?

With my spread I am using now ROR is not even a minor concern so it’s not that. I just more or less don’t like losing and am getting really pissed about huge positive counts and stiffs vs 10s every freaking time lately. Lol.

ive seen half kelly go bankrupt, it doesnt happen often, but it does happen

and it can be really frustrating

Level 2?

You say you wonged which leads me to believe you are using a level 1 count (hi-lo). You also say you have two deeply dealt games you play. May I suggest a level 2 count to take advantage of the great penetration you have available, White Guy (esp. DD)? However, you won’t be able to backcount (wong in) with level 2, and less wonging out (more hands played).

I do not believe half kelly could go broke w/ resizing (not counting expenses or anything else). Is it even mathematically possible?

Depends on size of bank & table minimums in real world

In theory no, u don’t go broke because can infinitely resize down on losses
.999999% chance of not losing 99% of bank
With perfect resizing down on losses
