Variance insanity

I have had an upswing of $3k in the last week, nearly all of it at the fish tank which is Purple Lounge. That's just crazy stuff - the equivalent of at least 300BB at the stakes I usually play. It follows a nearly $1k downswing over the week previous to that, so it's not entirely plain sailing.

Of course all of this is raindrops compared to the utter insanity of the high stakes action at Full Tilt of the last week or so. Unknown newcomer 'Isidur1' has been wreaking absolute havoc - yesterday he was playing eight simultaneous tables ($500/$1000 blinds NLH) against the three best players in the world: Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius and Tom 'durrrr' Dwan. The new guy is up overall to the tune of about 4 million, mainly thanks to crushing durrrr in some insane six table matches, but all these guys have seen million dollar swings over the last few days.
