Better to start off full stacked, learn postflop and then switch to shortstacking if it suits you.
I think I know something you really don't know - or overestimate.
How much BB to start with on the table is a very important part in bankroll management.
Playing poker, the first important thing is Bankroll Management.
Bankroll management way way important and more skill than , playing cards or what you called poker skill.
My initial buy in almost guarantee I am optimized in high hours rating with low variance.
it is far more better skill thank playing. so much for it.
this is middle stack
12bb/100 hands, 1.2 buyin = 60bb variance
run 100K hands, run 1000 times
at least , guarantee wining money.
this is what you called skill player, 100BB full buyin
14bb/100 hands, 3times of the more variance, 3.6 buyin variance= 360bb
I put in 350
run 100K hands , run 1000 times
you want to play 100bb full buyin??
100K hands , not guarantee wining money
bring in 100bb full stack , 30bb/100 hands, this is incredibly top player
100K hands , 1000 times
worst situation is break even.
so you want 100bb buyin???
100bb buyin 30bb/100 hands player is definitely more skill than 12bb/100 hands , middle stack player, but ...
see good bankroll management is overwhelming the skill on tables.
middle stack player almost guarantee win , but 100bb play ....I just ...say...could not GTD wining money after a fairly large sample size of hands.
