I think that when you are prepared for something, then you have no problem when it happens, It is like the draws. You don't go crazy every time you did't give the odds to the fish but he made his draw (If you do, then you need to change your mindset and study more). It is expected to happen. To be honest... I am curious... How can you handle a 100,000 hands downswing! I mean... You need guts! I don't play HU but I 'd prefer more than 100 buy-ins for me... lol. @Alex… Relax and enjoy it!

What will i do if i hit 20 like u. thats what i worry about right now i’m playing 22+1 at full titlt. i moved up from 11+.50 HU after about 10 days of playing but i was really playing 1 table. now i’m playing 2. keeps me from clinging on to bad beats and moving on because of the speed.

As a sidenote, I would not recommend playing more than 2 tables of HU and 4 tables of 6max at once. Regarding the timeline, I play around 325 hands an hour 2-tabling HU. The graph above shows close to 105,000 hands or about 325 hours of play. @Alex

I'm using 50 buy ins as a rule but i just started playing 2 tables and i was looking for advice if this right to follow.
