pokerpro comes to hot springs
no not A poker pro the electronic table pokerpro very nice tables .
so I think wow this is my shot at making some money on a regular basis , I head down to our casino which is normally just slots
and a few electronic blackjack
tables only to find out the tables are $1 - $2 blinds and minimum buy in $50 , I buy in for all my money $50 , sit down and everyone at the table has $300 - $900 , needless to say I had to play very tight . PF raises were $10 to $20 almost every hand , I only played like two hands and won one to end up with $67 (total)for the night . go back tonight and put my $50 back in and noticed lowest player has $712 and highest was guy on my right with $2850 who was in his high 70's . 10 person table but only 5 others playing .
I got lucky early and was at $140 after a few hands . then I was UTG2 with KK and just limped knowing a raise was coming , it did , $25 and got 3 callers so when it came back to me I raised ALL IN , got 2 callers . flop came 9 - 5 - 4 rainbow and they put a few hundred more in , another rag on turn then the ace on the river . one guy had QQ the other guy had A3 for the win .
so I'm titling inside but know it won't effect my game and go rebuy for $100 that wasn't meant for poker but......gotta go for it .
waited for BB then hit QQ on my SB , it was raised to $25 by a guy who raised it every hand and again had 3 callers , I raise all in and get two callers , the lag had AA and other caller had K-10s , flop comes K-J-Q , turn is a rag and river is an ACE . k-10 wins with a str8 and I'm last with a set of Q's . major tilt inside but just smiled and said GG GLA and left knowing I would be back and I would be short stacked next time too but knowing I can't stay away .
very very good money to be made there but not an easy task with no live BR and not much chance of getting one except get lucky . cashed out at bodog for $300 tonight so I can play again but realize thats not even close to enough . I am way over my head but cannot and will not stop myself . I play only small stakes online ($10NL)and am not on this level so I'm here for any help I can get except the proper advice of don't be so stupid
I'll probably buy in for $100 next time so I'll still be shortstacked and only have 3 buy ins
should I buy in for $50 again since I'll be SS anyway ? then I would have 6 buy ins (not great either )
how many buy ins should I be willing to lose in one setting ?
can I get anywhere playing my already to tight game or should I TRY to loosen up ?
etc. etc . etc
I need all the advice I can get please help with your opinions
