Downswings Running Badly
Posted 22 November 2012 - 09:20 AM
All players experience downswings at some point, and they can be extremely troubling times indeed.
In reality,that downswings really don't even exist from a theoretical perspective. They are a figment of the imagination of the player involved.
But the poker community talks about them, they believe in them, and they assign properties to them.

Isn't downswing losing period in your game? Downswing is not less earning than expected....
When PROs that earn 1M per year (like Galfond) writes in his blog that he recently lost 700 K, showing earning/losing graph ( including EV+ graph) in last 10 days that means "he is on downswing".

2) if you run bad for weeks or even months, its not normal variance anymore, its rigged software of the poker site.

Your definition is not close to the definition of the common use of downswing. When people say "downswing" they are talking about losing money, not running below EV. You can run below EV for a given period and still win, if you do so its not a downswing. You can run even or + for a period but still lose, if you do then its still a downswing.
You say all players experience them and they can be "extremely troubling times indeed", but they theoretically don't exist. So, you are saying they actually exist, but theoretically they don't? I've never heard of something that exists in reality, but not in theory. Are there any other such examples in the world?
Can;t think of any in the world but there is a restaurant at the end of the universe!
- Anything that happens, happens.
Anything that, in happening, causes something else to happen, causes something else to happen.
Anything that, in happening, causes itself to happen again, happens again.
It doesn't necessarily do it in chronological order, though.
