Advice on course of action
So, I went to the casino at montreal to play poker since their poker room opened Friday.
The first day I turned $200 into $670, the second day I turned $200 into $0 (99<23, KK<AA); I was playing $1/$2, their lowest stakes. Obv I'm still up from what I originally started with, but keeping in mind that I only have about $400 besides what I've played with to be able to afford to lose, I'm vexed as to how I should proceed in playing. I'm clearly not bankrolled to play even $1/$2, but the players are just AWFUL. It seems hugely +EV to continue playing there, and besides I really need the money. I'm curious though, would any of you recommend buying in for, say, $100, and working with that, or is max buy-in the only way to go? I mean, I always buy in for the max online, but here, it seems like risking $200 at once might not even be worth the extra EV, simply because the players could have ANYTHING, and a bulletproof set could easily get rivered by a gutshot etc.
Clearly set mining w/ $200 is hugely +EV, but it's also tedious, since live hands take much longer (even though its an electronic table), and you can theoretically go for an entire session without seeing a playable hand (and losing $ to rake, blinds etc). I mean, would anyone advocate just playing TAG with $100, and sticking it in with 2prs, sets, overprs, huge draws etc?
Surely this is still +EV, and perhaps safer in terms of BRM?
Thoughts are appreciated
