Well I don't exactly consider myself a weak player, but I'm trying to protect my bankroll. I don't have enough to comfortably buy in for the max, and there is rarely a 1/2 game at my home casino. If I bought in for the max a cold streak of 10 buyins and I'd be broke.
The laws are strange in Washington state. You can't have a bet over $25 in any cardroom in state jurisdiction. The indian casinos
negotiated to make it $500 max bets, so that's where I play, but again 3/5 is the smallest game, and I don't have enough trust in the legitimacy of online poker to play at these stakes.
