Re: Buy-in for 200 or 300 1/2 Live?

It will surprise you but my answer is probably totally different that what you get here. The amount of units you buy it depends how well and efficient you play AK. It all depends on your AK technique. What you need to perfect it's how to bet any other AK and any pair from QQ down to 22 and obviously any AX, KX, QX, JX etc. The only two cards combination you worry about would be AA and KK. All the rest you need to beat in order to be a big winner.
If you can handle AK then I suggest buy for max in order to cover everybody.

Why the reference point is AK?
Because all the rest are simple straight plays: Pairs go for set farming most of the time. AXs and Suited connectors need to hit a strong draw and get the correct price to continue. Nothing left of any value except AK that brings money in. So make sure you know how to handle that hand because the majority of people have no idea how to play AK.

Well, I don't know what LMFAO means but I can tell you that I play professionally in Las Vegas for as long as I remember. I never had a regular job. Poker was and is still my only source of income.

If you from Greenland or whatever you are located know better by reading your little poker books..., I guess I can understand your attitude without having experience of live play with real cash.

As an example:
My AK vs. your (QQ,JJ,TT,99,88,77,66,55,44,33,22, any AX, KX, QX, JX, suited or unsuited middle or small connectors) you cannot overcome the stress and comfort level I will put you in to be able to even see a flop. The only risk I take is if I bump into your AA or KK when I will be in trouble but for less then 10% of my effective stack.
Your QQ/JJ/TT will not be able to see a flop and reevaluate. You will have to shove preflop and make a decision for your entire stack, and that is a very very hard decision to make.

My balance stress has become so deep, it's part of my personality and is imposible to be reversed now. I'm a poker winning machine.

I've made at least 3 billion decisions in my life that involved less stress than jamming TT pre-flop against someone wearing a Rolex.

Yup. Poker is simple. If you can't play AK, just muck it preflop and you will print money.

Okay. I will try to originate some thought here.

So, how do you "handle" AK?

Either your trolling or your absolutely out of your mind MamaRolex Reading your posts literally just gave me a headache. If you can play ak buy in for the max looooooool I can't believe I'm even dignifying that insanity with a response. I'm going to stop trying to understand that thought process before my brain explodes.

p.s very nh and gg if you're leveling

As for OP question it depends on bankroll. Comfort level, deepstack playing ability, position relative to player types and if you can handle the ak47 with extendo clips

If you don't know how to handle AK in such a way as to beat any other AK, all pairs from QQ down to 22 and all other combo of two cards you cannot make it in this game. As soon as you learn how to play AK to perfection you will always be a winner at your table.

Do people get nervous playing against you cuz they know their entire stack is in play when they are in a hand v u?

Are there players in your game who are going to make massive errors post flop for over 150 bigs?

most players would be better served not buying in deep cuz they can only answer yes to the last question
Very correct Squid. As to the OP, if it is just a question of comfort, move past your comfort zone and buy in deeper, if it is a confidence in your deep stack play problem, dont.


*There is also the dynamic that, when you buy in deep or to max, it induces egos (fish) to add on or rebuy in deep.
