Keeping 100k cash around the house probably isn't a great idea.

If you said "buy lunch every day with poker winnings and never pay taxes on that money", you could get away with that. Trying to hide $100k form the IRS to buy a house is just crazy talk.

You have to work in Shooter McGavin, but otherwise go for it.

Very nice! How about some other stats?

Standard deviation?
Deepest downswing?
Longest breakeven period?
whatever else you feel like sharing

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Anyone have a reliable sample for live Limit Omaha 8. Just wondering if it would be worth splitting my time between Omaha 8 and NLHE.

If you live in Vegas or anywhere with 24/7 2/5 games, 10bb/hr should not be the gold standard.

10bb/hr is easy. Not sure what it should be, never been that lucky to play in such paradise.

I wasn't going to comment as my sample is a bit small (150 hours). But a 5/t with full kill (so about 25% of pots played t/20) game ran in my reg room on sat nights. Lots of limit h/e players and maybe 1 decent O8 player. I read up a little, listened to one of Bart Hanson's podcasts from deuce plays days where he had an O8 specialist on.

I was a winner in the game. Around that time I was moving from 1/3nl to 2/5 and the game stopped making sense to sit in from a w/r standpoint but was a nice diversification to my previous 1/2-1/3 portfolio.

If the game has some bad players in it you should be able to play it profitably if it's 5/t kill or 6/12 half kill or higher.

Edit: I'll add this was a time game $5/half hr.
