I can withstand the blow but I'm way disciplined.
For the $1 - $3NL game I buy in for $240
2 Stacks of red ($5) $200
2 Stacks of white ($1) $40
I play Tight, not tight aggressive.
If my stack ever reaches below $180 I take off.
I will continue to play if I've made a profit of at least $100 after 1.5 hours, if not I leave.
If my white chips are starting to dwindle after making $100 in 1.5 hours or less I refill my whites (2 stacks $40) then if I lose those to blinds I take off.
Well actually my strategy for "on table BR management" is actually kind of really hard to explain on text.
Anyway from each win I start a new stack of chips and build them up and do my best not to play them unless I wake up with AKs, AQs, AA, KK, QQ, JJ then it's okay to dive into the red chips.
I allow myself to reraise 4x initial raiser with AA KK QQ
I allow myself to call 4x raise with JJ TT
I allow myself to call a 3x Raise with Pocket Pairs of 7 8 9
I allow myself to call a min raise or limp with pocket pairs of 2 - 6
Suited connectors can be played only if they meet these requirements:
1. There was no raise
2. Only Played on the button or 1 seat before the button.
3. Must be suited connectors that are capable of open ended straights. (ie: A2s cannot be played 23s is really iffy) 34 or higher
There's alot of other crazy things that I do in my head when I play, my own set rules and stuff. If I could actually put them into words maybe I could sell a book or something, I bet it would sell better than the "How many outs do you really have?" book.
