I play a lot of 6max cash game online and my redline (non-showdown winnings) have always been around breakeven or slightly winning, which I use as a good indication of me not giving up on opportunities to bluff or overfold in spots. However, I usually play tournaments on sundays and recently started playing more tournaments. When going over my graph in bbs I realize my redline is quite rapidly declining in tournaments. Is this just a function of how tournaments work? It being 9max, having to fold vs shorter stacks reshoves, ante, etc? Or is this something I should work on?
My question is also for all you winning tournament players, how is your non-showdown winnings?
