# Friday plays

nothing early again today. Much of what I look at develops during the day. Unless it is obvious the plays are going to be late plays.

These plays are free….so if you want to sign up…just send me an email and I will add you to the group. You can receive these via text , email or both.

4. Respecting variance….(that breaks many good players)

This is probably the most important of all. You can be a top player and go broke and stay broke unless you respect Variance.

All variance is probabilities. Variance can work both ways. You see people on extended winning streaks. This is variance. You see people on bad runs..variance.

So…what type of bankroll do you need to play at certain limits. First let me say….that for many players variance is not much of an issue except that it might keep them afloat for longer then you would expect.

Many players play so bad that eventually they will quit or go broke.

But for the players that have a positive expectation the consensus seems to be 300 big bets to give you a 5% chance of ruin(losing it all). So in a 40-80 game that equates to having a 24,000 bankroll set aside to play.

This assumes that you are close to a big bet an hour player. Most players after the rake are no better then a small bet an hour…so depending on what your win rate is the 24,000 would be the minimum required.

What are the chances of losing it all? I have seen people in the 40-80 mixed game go through 25,000 in one session! albeit they played 3 days straight. But it can happen..and its happened more then once and more then 1 player.

If you are a winning player and respect variance in the long run you will be fine.

With the nba and nhl in full gear now late plays will become more important. There is very little overnight action so when I post around 7 am there is not a lot to go by for me. I will only post the clear cut morning plays and will update later via late plays.

These late plays are FREE. So if you want them sent to you send me an email and I will add you to the google group.
