Ona small bankroll I plan to play my own strategy il never risk
A full buy in in one hand say im a slight favourate or hold a premium hand pre flop
I wont take that chance because I know if iose thats gonna take a huge dent
I prefer to give it up wait for a better spot with someone likely to pay me off and stick
To my post flop analysis playing smaller pots no more than two opponants preferably, if I sense weakness ill stick around with a half decent hand test the water,
If by the river that doesnt change il either look to push them off if confident and have a piece or call if I have any indication or spot a oddity in the betting.
And in addition tend to be able to extract value from made hands by different approaches to diffrrent player's
Our dear friend cotta,
It sounds like you are going to lose your entire 200 dollars very very fast.
Ive been where you are in the past and ive tried to win back money i lost(as fast as possible but playing good).
Unfortunately theory and practice are two very conflicting things when it comes down to playing poker.
Lets talk about some facts. Fact number one is that if you dont have a minimum of 15 buy ins for the level you want to play,dont even go there. Id say 20-25 buy ins but ill go as low as 15 since you feel like you are a winning player.
Fact number 2: Even the best players in the world go through horrific downswins of 10 or even 15 buy ins by playing their A game due to a bad strike of variance.
what are you going to do when you sit down at 25 or 50NL with 4 buy ins or 6 buy ins and you suddenly lose 2 or 3 in a row?
I'll tell you what you'll do. You will go on tilt due to being scarred of losing the rest or mad cause the site is "cheating" and you will blow the rest away within 30 minutes max. I obviously dont wish this happens to you but it is a reality te majority of poker players have faced.
The best advice anyone can give you is to play at 10 NL maximum with a roll like that since you believe you can win and take your roll up to 450-500(which is only 25 buy ins up) and then you can take some shots at 25 NL. Even then youll be kinda short but hey, better have 18 buy ins that 6 right?
Winning in cash games requires alot of time and patience and it is highly unlikely for smeone to succeed playing cash in the longterm without the number one quality of PATIENCE.
Anyways, i hope this sinks into your brain because if it doesnt, you will have to discover this information the way alot of us did. THE HARD WAY.
good luck and i hope you do well.
