6max HT lifetime graph - variance at 100k sng sample

This is not cry blog. I cry constantly every single month on TiltBook (didn't cry just twice), but example how big variance is in hypers. You can't imagine how many times I was thinking like "I have to run better now, it is impossible to be more below EV". Variance have no memory!

I played 100k sngs lifetime since I started my way from $150 to SNE, starting at $1.50 stakes. The first 30k sngs are from micro and lowstakes and then $60+ games with abi like $130. The only time when I was losing in EV was in december 2012 (I was big fish trying to make SNE playing $200s without table selection haha). No need to talk more, here are graphs:

And in buy-ins:

Ok, it is not that bad and I have some money for life, but there is a lot of regs playing hypers who thinks 100-200 buy-ins below EV is a lot and they need to run bad after that. It's not true and you all can run even worse, variance is bitch. We can just pray!
