I usually play the $2/$3, $100 buyin now,
but when I started it was worse - the smallest stake game is a $1/$1, $20 buy-in (everyone starts with only 20BB). Also known as Texas
Yeah, I find it annoying that you can't buy in for more than $100 with those blinds, but every casino (technically card club) in Los Angeles has a mandatory buy-in amount - maybe its a regualtion they have to follow in California
, because I know its not like that in Vegas.
