Full Tilt 10NL rings
I have mixed feelings about Full Tilt. I play ring games NLHE at the .05/.10 and built up a nice bankroll. I like to buy in for the maximum 100 BigBlinds and rebuy to keep a full stack. This worked very nicely for me because I was able to win a couple of full stacks on big hands every couple of hours. The big stack players seem to now have become "victimized" by the short stackers. They like to buy in for the minimum and go all in on long shot draws and face cards. The problem this presents is that the pot odds
are never there for a big stack to bet out on a pocket pair and the variance gets really high. I try to scout loose tables on Tilt but the loose tables all have 5 shorties in there. I would like to see some NL games with fixed buy ins like you would see in a home game. It just seems that it is harder to make big pots with so many short stackers in there. Of course, if you are playing a short stack strategy then maybe you feel differently, but I seldom see short stack players ever build their stacks to equal one full buyin at this level. They usually win a couple of all ins and then get wiped out on one hand.
