That's a really low nut and it's covered by your SSI, so I think you can be more aggressive with your BR once you've made your move. 20K is pretty sick for a live 2/5 BR, imo, but we all have to measure risk independently. With 20k, 2/5 would be my regular game and I would feel extremely comfortable sitting a juicy 5/10.

JFC that's the sickest heater I've ever seen.

Is 200bb/hour sustainable?

Game plays uncapped, players often buy in for 1k plus. My biggest pot came during a dealers choice where we were playing crazy pineapple. I flopped a set of kings against a set of sevens and a nut flush draw. Three way all in for just north of $3500. We all decided to run it once, I held.

I've been thinking this recently. Only thing that is really keeping me from taking more shots at 2/5 even it isn't a juicy game, is that I am killing 1/2 capped (200 max) since I started playing for a living averaging 17bb's an hour. I'm gonna give it a while, rest on it, sleep on it, and make a smart decision on whether to move up. Sad thing is, at the local cardroom I visit, is all the grinders play 2/5. Everyone in the room that knows their stuff, plays 2/5. So I will be up against good players instead of fish-fest 1/2 capped.

I posted my biggest hand a few replies back. It was a dealers choice crazy pineapple hand. Flopped set of kings vs set of 7's and nut flush draw. Pot was around 3500. Didn't take pics of stack. It's at a local cardroom with guys I play with a lot and didn't even think to take a pic, nor would have wanted to rub my huge win in their faces that way.... Well, maybe I would have had the thought crossed my mind.

And I even lost a hand that night where I slow played a set of queens on a QT2 rainbow board and got runner runner quaded by T9

Most i've ever been sat with is 1180 bigs, but it was only 50p/50p and you could buy in 150 bigs deep so not that impressive.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

do you think this is reasonable:

i have a bankroll of X

as long as the bankroll is at X+ i am going to take 25 percent of each winning session and use it for life. (hookers and blow)

if bankroll dips below X, i take 0 percent for life until i get roll back to X.

also, anyone have a link to Risk of ruin? i can't seem to find one that helps me.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Guys, I have to plan my daily cambridge > London commute.

I'm thinking during festivals and soft weekends I get a hotel, but otherwise I take a 45-1 hour journey every day I play at 12-6pm and take the train back at 6AM, giving myself 12-16 hour days, with plenty of days off, and if possible I can play 2-3 days in a row when games are really good/whale's in town.

I'd leave earlier but I have no car so I have to take the train. Train's like 20 pounds return, and 10~ taxi each way from train station to home/casino, so that's like 40/day on commute, but I do expect to be able to cover that pretty easily.

Thoughts?

I think if I force myself long hours my 5/10 winrate is def going down but still my hourly in those deadish games won't be so low so that it wouldn't be worth it so it's still okay.

After that I have to decide whether to stick to the Vic or to play at the Palms as well. =/

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Would hate to play anything more than 6 hours a session. I know playing 10 hour sessions for the first 6 months of this year made me startt0 hate poker.

12-6pm and catch a train back? Read a book, learn a language/ipad/kindle, and its not really wasted time.
