This is a discussion on 1/2 vs 1/3 NLHE within the online poker forums, in the Live Poker section; Hello, I just went to Encore Boston, I sat at a 1/3 table, I play 1/2 at Foxwoods. what is the opinion of the members
1 is it still the smallest game spread? If so same. I agree
2 is the buy in larger 150 bb vs 100bb? If so players may chase more the max buy-in is $300 equaling 100bbs
3 is it a warm up game for a 2-5 game?
Better players or more willing to gamble players in game ok I understand
4 are there more 60bb buy in stacks on the 1-3- same $200 as the 1-2 but now short stack I saw on an early Saturday Morning , on the 9 player table a couple with 200bbs or more, but these players have been playing over night.
Players at this level do not adjust to short stacks so it becomes a preflop game for you. Ok
