Am I crazy for taking a shot at 100NL with only $500? And 4 tabling at that. lol. I'm a maniac.



I started at 10NL with a $50 bankroll four tabling =) I used to get real pissed when I got sucked out on.

I assume you are addressing me? I started playing poker "for real" (moving beyond donktastic play in $5 tournies at school) in September 2005 with my $50 roll at NL10. I 4-tabled right off the bat after learning that "tight is right".

I currently 4 table NL100 with a bankroll of about 40 buyins. I could move up I guess but I'm not happy with my winrate at NL100. [edit: small sample size, 15k hands, yada yada yada, regardless I am not achieving the results that I feel I am capable of) I'll be down here for 20k more hands at least. And I still bonus whore every opportunity I get. I rarely play without a bonus.

By the time I move up to the 200s I'll be rediculously overrolled, which is great for building confidence. Variance be damned when I move up. "When Sup Bro moves up in stakes, you will know it"

edit: I spelled confidence with an s

200NL when:

- you're ok betting your stack on a draw
- a PFR from you doesnt always mean AA-JJ and AQs+
- you're starting to play one hand while holding another
- you have more than one mode
- you have 3000 or more





Good post. I still don't find this to be true at this level though. *Sometimes* rarely against other decent players. I feel like this is still -EV, or I'm just not representing the hand well enough.

I was thinking, wouldn't it be great to make a guide from this post? We could find a post that discusses each guideline and make a link to it. So for instance you could click on "- you understand position" and get a list of posts that discusses importens of position and hand analysis where position was a major factor.

Re: dumb question - what is PT in PTBB? [Re: Niediam]
      #4365488 - 01/06/06 03:53 AM

I pretty sure one big bet is 2 big blinds. I don't have pokertracker but when it says bb I'm pretty sure it stands for big bets and not big blinds. I don't know why everyone calls them PTBB instead of big bets though.

That was one of the best posts I think I've ever read here. Even though I play at the lowest level, this was a truly helpful guide.

Because there is no such thing as a 'big bet' in no limit poker.
