Hi all just thought about this might help some fellow players.. I am a solid Limit player and getting Very comfortable in my NL game,, Anyway I used to play 15/30 and feel like i was ment to be in that chair but soon as I would sit in a 20 40 was like a school kid in the principles office.. Didnt belong there and it wasnt about the bankroll because it I was in good shape to play,, Any way i have backed a player in 100 min 200 max NL game a local casino and he always did well Well another casino has a GREAT 100 min 300 max game .. well i been crushing the game on a regular basis So my buddy asked me to back him in it so i was not woorried becuase i has done well for me in the past so he comes down i buy him for the 300 and he is at a diff table than me well he gets moved to my table because he was at a must move game I was in Main game ,, Well I am watching him play and wasnt like him.. So i pulll him to side ask if is comfortable he was like yea he was fine just not catchin any cards well I end up giving him another 300 and he loses it as well..So we goto dinner and then he tells me he wasnt comfortable with those limits.. So he was destine to lose in my opionion which I knew from past experiance from my 20 40 days..So Point is never play where you dont feel good about your self or your game ...

Hi all ! Just thought about this, might help some fellow players. I am a solid Limit player and getting Very comfortable in my NL game. Anyway I used to play 15/30 and feel like i was meant to be in that chair, but soon as I would sit in a 20 40 I was like a school kid in the principles office. Didnt belong there and it wasnt about the bankroll because it was in good shape to play.

Anyway, I have backed a player in 100 min 200 max NL game a local casino and he always did well. Well another casino has a GREAT 100 min 300 max game. Well I been crushing the game on a regular basis, so my buddy asked me to back him in it. I was not woorried becuase (I/it/he?) has done well for me in the past.

So he comes down, I buy him for the 300 and he is at a diff table than me. Well he gets moved to my table because he was at a must move game I was in Main game. Well I am watching him play and (it) wasnt like him. So I pulll him aside, ask if (he) is comfortable. He was like yea, he was fine just not catchin any cards. Well I end up giving him another 300 and he loses it as well.

So we goto dinner and then he tells me he wasnt comfortable with those limits. So he was destine to lose in my opionion which I knew from past experiance from my 20 40 days. So Point is never play where you dont feel good about your self or your game ...

My apologies for editing this, but the story is good, and good to remember.

I started to, and a few remain. My intent was to make a tale worth noting a bit less painless. My first edit would have been unrecognizable as the authors story.

Actually, I was channeling the Punctuation NAZI last night.....
