Very loose table - stay, or avoid
The other day I stopped by the local casino to have a shot at some live poker. I decided I would give myself $100 to play with, and that was it (don't have an active live bankroll, so worked on a budget instead). Most of the tables were Pot limit (which I have played there before), but they were all full and the only spot was a place at the 1/2, NL table. So I grabbed my $100 in chips, and sat down.
I could not believe the play, it was a full table, and every hand, there were at least 2 people all in, majority of the time before the flop, if not that early, then right after the flop. The cards they were going all in with were horrible, in the 10 rounds or so I was there for, I did not see more than a couple of "Playable" hand. 25o, 96s, just complete garbage. I thought it was payday for me.
So I waited and decided I would only get one shot at this pot with my $100, so I waited for the opportunity. Finally I was dealt pocket kings in seat 4. (Not 100% on the exact bets, but definitely within the ball park). Seat 1 limps in. Fold, Fold, I raise to $25 (12.5 x big blind). Guy beside me calls. Rest fold back to seat 1, who goes all in with about $60. I want heads up, so I go all in for the rest of my stack ($95). Guy besides me calls me. So 3 of us in. Guy in seat 1 shows 86o, Guy beside me shows A8o.
Flop comes, 1 Ace of course. Turn is another ace, and river does not deliver my King, so I am out. Having spent my $100, I wished everyone a good game and went back to work
Now, my question. This type of table looks to me like it could be a gold mine, but I would imagine you need to have a large bankroll to weather all the suckouts. Is this a good table to be at? And if so, what sort of bankroll should I be aiming to walk in their with (minimum buyin is $100, max is $200)? Alternatively, should I (especially as a relative beginner at Texas
Hold'em) be avoiding these tables and getting more experience at Pot limit before I get involved in No Limit tables that are this crazy?
