Everytime I accomplish this, I seem to donk it all off in a couple hands trying to bully the table around.
Should I leave the table no matter what? I want to stay and really get a bankroll going but when I get the big stack everyone takes shots at me and I usually go along for the ride.
I try to play tight but its tough when everytime you 3x raise the BB everyone jumps all-in or folds to you. Seems like I'm more willing to take risks when I'm shory stacked.
I hemmorage when I am big stacked.
This is a rambling post because I'm playing at the same time (a no-no for sure)
If you get the jist of this post please tell me what you do, sorry if this is a old topic as well.
Another "it depends".
If I double up and feel like I really had to work for it and am evenly matched at that table, then I leave ahead. If I double up and think I can keep outclassing the table, I stay.
I think the key is to NOT change your game at a cash table. Play the same as when you started. It may be correct to be the bully with the big stack in tournies, but I don't think it is in cash games. Even if they take shots at you, don't change. Yes, you can put a really small stack all-in if they raised PF and you have a strong or semi-strong hand. But play normally against anyone with near half your stack or more.
I'm not an expert. It's just my opinion based on my experiences.
