re: Poker & 1/2 NLHE, Short Stack
Yeah, I totally realized that my math was terrible about 2 seconds ago.
With the pot being ~14ish, that gives us a fairly awkward stack size. But even still, you'd probably get callers with a raise of that size ^_^.
Yeah, I think I'd buy in for like a 30 big blind stack, since most likely it will get bigger and you'll get into that funny 60 bb stack area anyways fairly soon. And live games are loose & limpy, so you certainly want the ability to get most of the way in preflop and capitalize on their looseness preflop.
