This is a discussion on does your BR change the way you play? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; say for exampe, you have 50 dollars in your BR, you would play small buy in MTT's or SnG's like 2+20's. say for example you
say for exampe, you have 50 dollars in your BR, you would play small buy in MTT's or SnG's like 2+20's. say for example you have 1000 dollars in your BR, you would most likely play anything from 20+2 to 50+5 dollar MTT's or SnG.
would you play differently? who cares about 2 bones right, it would be the 50 that i would be concerned with.
personally, i play the game the same way, regardless of the buy in.
what's your take?

My short answer if I read your question right is that no, it doesn't change the way you play per se. Your BR dictates what level you play at, not how you personally play. Yes, you will have to adapt slighty to accommodate certain more or less skilled players at different levels, but by and large those minor changes you make will still be within the confines of the game you normally play.
