To some this may seem impossible, but let me know if this has ever happened to anybody else. Anyway over the last 4 days I've played in 12 MTT's. Out of those MTT's I've been in the money in 8! 4 of those were final tables, and 1 1st place. That's a 75% ITM! My average weekly ITM% is between 18% and 25%. I'd say 75% is just freakish. So anyway would you say this sounds like a change in my game or just a freakish run? Has this ever happened to you?
Gimme your chips or I'll beat you with a dead cat... No really, gimme your chips!

nice dude! I think the swing effect pay for your skills! If you changed something big in your general strategie, maybe it's why you get better results, if not, it's all variation.

Well,... I dont know about anyone else... but Im impressed. Ive never had that good an average. I would say based on that, that your game is probably experiencing an uptick on top of being on an upswing of the pendulum. I dont think you will sustain that average as the pendulum eventually will swing back the other way. But I do think that your game has improved which is a good thing. Would love to know what changes you made in your game... All this amounts to more money in the LONG RUN. After all... thats what we are all playin for right...?hehe. Enjoy the run... sounds like fun.... I may need lessons....hehe Jim

I'd say it's probably both. I've had similar things happen, though not to that extent. Whenever I've made a notable improvement to my game, my success spikes for a few days. Then it slowly decreases and tapers off at a higher success average than before. Who knows? After this, you could start averaging 25 - 30% in the money.

It's a good run, but I wouldn't go as far as to call it freakish. I've done it many times before and know people that do it as well.

Very nice run, I would love a run like that. My problem is I start to get emotional as I get more tired after a while and it doesn't help my chances any.
