2k hands isn't enough to know if you were beating 2NL, so it doesn't surprise me that the next 2k hands are swingy. Play 25k and repost.

winning 15 BI's in 2k hands is running white hot imo.... 1500BB/20 = 75BB per 100 hands....

winning 3 BI's in 2k hands is running not too bad imo.... 300BB/20 = 15BB per 100 hands....

i dont have PT or HEM but i assume that these above calcs are correct for PT BB per 100 hands ????

A PTBB /100 is twice that of a BB/100

So 1 BB = 2PTbb

Well, I decided to try 2nl again just for a little bit, just to see if the I continued to swing on that... sorry people it IS a small sample.

I do think 2nl is a lot easier than 5nl, it's like people only start to play past 2nl, even thoguh they bad in general, I do feel as though I need to learn different lines at 5nl. For example a donk bet means a completely different thing. Anyway I played 389 hands 9 tabling 2nl and was up 4.5 buyins at the end. I found it completely easy and I didn't even have any real big hands (2 big hands).

SO I don't think that I was on a SUPER SUPER heater... maybe a good run with no real downswings, but not a relaly special thing..

I know you will just say 'small sample' but honestly, go and play 2nl for a little bit yourself.

That's actually backwards. 1PTbb=2big blinds

So 15 buyins in 2k hands would be 1500/20 to determine the big blinds/100 and then divide that again by 2 to get PTbb/100
