I have spent the past hour on the phone with H-Money and another bac player I have never mentioned on the board here. We specifically went into detail about each of our wins and losses and as well, other players clearly wagering against or with players winning large or losing large at the table.
I have definitively concluded and called out my past:
My largest wins by far, have been with my smaller buy ins. Defined without too much detail. Buy ins of $1,000.00 to $10,000.00. Wins of $25,000.00 to $190,000.00. Cashing out and retaining far in excess of my larger amounts below.
My largest losses by far, have been with my largest buy ins. Buy ins of $10,000.00 to $25,000.00 Losses of the same plus additional buy ins of whatever I attempted to recoup the lost buy in.
I do believe now, that the smaller buy in allow players to have less false-positives in their ability to return to their regular playing levels and plateaus after they have won, rather than the false positives that are inflicted on most with the larger and longer wagering problem that causes them----most of the time to give back what they won or not allow themselves a clear frame of mind, in order to apply the proper money management methods etc.
Supports my own theory and experience (for myself, might not pertain or apply to you) of, if you are going to win, you will win with smaller money as compared to much larger buy in amounts.
Then comes into play, would be your money management and dividing up practices of your win money and your ability to call it a session and cash out.
