well for me...the key factor the distinguishes my cash game tournament game is variance...

why have a quitted cash games....2 factors

1. The variance of my cashflows are too big for my bankroll to withstand

2. I think I suck at cash games

However, when I switched over to tourneys (and by tourneys I actualy mean 18man SnG, which is wat i grind on a daily basis), my cashflow stabled down ALOT....the same stable cashflow can probably be achieved with big MTTs but...gotta have a hell lotta time for that....

for me...getting a stable, slow and steady increase in my bankroll is more impt than the big wins and losses in my cash games...

the numbers proposed in the article are rather dissapointing though....to think the most successful players onli get an expectation of so low....but then...they didnt get the expectation of cash game players as well...so cant relli compare there...
