This is a discussion on Highest Stakes Played within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; What's the highest stakes you have played? Did you get a big tournament cash/win at sports and jump in a bigger game? How did you
What's the highest stakes you have played? Did you get a big tournament cash/win at sports and jump in a bigger game? How did you fare? Did you notice the gulf in player between this game and your regular game?
For me, I have jumped into $5/$10 PLO on occasion. Felt I held my own although the sessions were short.
My highest stakes game is live unlimited rebuy MTT with 10 euro buyin. I won around 450 euro from this one being in the final 3 and accepted deal. At this time though this money were helped me with another projects so i have not used them to play further. I consider this as one time chance and remain micro stakes player online.
i play Micro tournaments and sometimes low buy ins , but one day i was on a roll and was running deep in most tournaments and winning , i thought my level was too good ^^ so i did buy in for a 162$ MTT at the morning , the first hour went really smooth and good even got to the top 5 but then i got destroyed hard ^^ not winning much on my strong hands and my bluffs getting called often
The highest I played was 5, 10. And the truth is that it lasted very little and I left, I definitely felt uncomfortable playing. That made me realize that you have to have a good bench behind to play at those tables. Now I play 1, 2. thanks for the post you made me remember that moment gg
Highest stake in cash games 0.05-0.10$ 9max , more often 0.02-0.05$ ZOOM 9 max lol (well , when there was a pool of players on Stars ZOOM in the past ).
But in tournaments I have played 11$ tournaments , very very rarely 22$ , not good results.
I once had the chance to win a 110$ ticket in the bubble and with a medium or a little less stack , I called with Jacks on the big blind all in from very big stack on the button , he had A5 , bye bye 110$ ticket , sad , it would have been a great experience Since then I am kinda afraid/very very tight on the bubble and I try to get a 55$ or 110$ ticket in big events/series satellites , but I fail , in the future I will succeed it )
when i first started playing poker in the mid-late 2000s on full tilt and pokerstars, i tilted badly and played up to $150-300 heads up games. i haven't even gotten close to those levels and now only play in micro levels
My highest stakes table was a $5/$10 VIP PLO8 table. I had $2,000, and bought in for the max, twice. I had a few good runs, but losing $1,000 in one hand, was really the last of that. That was a defining moment in my online poker career. I had tried cashing out, but I was playing under my mother's name. She wouldn't sign the debit card verification papers. This was one Poker Nordica. The rakeback was insane, also. A friend of mine ended up depositing and cashing out, about 4-6 months later. So maybe it wasn't all it was hyped up to be.
My biggest tournament was the WSOP Big 50 this year. It was $500 and I made the money but busted on day 2. My biggest cash game was 10/10 $3k max buy in. I did feel that I held my own but also noticed a lot of stronger players. There is definitely a large gap between live 1/2, 1/3, 2/5, 5/10, 10/10 IMO. Having that perspective makes it easier to move back down and be successful in some ways.
