5/10 limit and 1/2 no limit
ok the people that know me on here are aware of what happened to me a couple days ago so no need to go into great detail about that. Last two days I have been talking to all my poker friends (and my wife ) and what I have come to a decision. Now I thought I had a terrible bankroll issue and yea I kinda do but its not really the same as most, see I play way above my bankroll because really the money to me is not the issue but the fact that im leaking money is. Like I can deposit money and if I lose it then thats fine with me, the part that makes me mad is the fact that im leaking it (hope that makes sense to you guys).
ok so I think after talking to my friends that know about my skills, have watched me play, and I have helped improve their game I have figured out where my leak is. The problem is I really cant play small stakes but im only depositing enough to support those small stakes. Like I will put 1k online but that only covers me for barley $50 NL and not even enough for 2/4 limit. So as of right now im on a forced ban from pokerstars
for 2 months and when I come back I plan on depositing enough for the stakes I feel like I should be playing which are the 2 that I put in this title.
Now I have played both these levels a pretty good amount and have shown decent results in them. Live I play both these limits and online I have played limit up to 10/20 and No limit up to 5/10, I'm not good enought for these 2 limits. I'm good enough for 5/10 limit and 2/4 NL but I'm only going to put 4k on so I will not be bankrolled for 2/4 NL, honestly the players at 5/10 limit are really not the greatest and players at 1/2NL are pretty horrible. I dont plan on depositing again after this 4k though, again the money is not the issue but I'm thinking this may relieve some of my bankroll issues seeing I will be playing what I feel comfortable at and will see no reason at all to move up for awhile if ever. I think that was my major issue is the fact that I just dont enjoy those lower limits.
Im a thinking player, and a student of the game and at lower limits I feel like some of my thought process is just too much. Now im not saying I can not beat the lower limits, I know I can but its just not enjoyable for me to sit at a $25NL game and I find myself opening like 4-8 tables and I feel that takes away from a lot of the advantages I have on my opponents. If I play 5/10 limit or 1/2 nl I feel I can just play 2 tables and my thought process through the hand will pay off big time.
I dont know what I really expect from this post more then something I just wanted to share with you all. This is something I feel I should of done a long time ago, my wife told me today that it might take away from my wsop
money next year but I feel like if I get in these games as soon as possible I should be able to make that money by then online. So as for the next 2 months I plan on absorbing everything I can about the games I'm planning on playing which includes watching these games on stars and reading everything I can get my hands on. I have experience in them already like I said but all the info I can get on them wont hurt. Thanks guys for reading this.
