Well I missed all of this earlier but L=L makes a whole bunch of good points, and it can hardly be a detriment to your game to learn how to play at every stack size.

But many of the arguments he makes can also be turned around e.g. at a shallower stack size, you can play fewer hands vs. a fish (less implied odds) and therefore have less of a chance of getting his $$ before somebody else does.

Anyway, the only reason I would half-stack is for table selection e.g. if I can play a much softer table at a higher blind level than I am rolled for. But I wouldn't rathole in that case, if I doubled up I'd go ahead and let 'er ride.

Re: The Never Buy in for less than 100BB 'rule'

I've always played with a 100BB stack but recently began a 60BB venture after sweating regs at higher levels, 50NL-200NL. I hated getting AK in pre with 100BB, but not with 60BB. Also not being as good as I thought I might be, I made some horrendous riv calls thinking I was getting bluffed or , "No way he has Q9 here..." and then he does.

I don't rathole, and once I get to 100BB stacks I'll play them. Right now a 60BB stack feels better as I make changes to my game.

40-60bb medium stack poker is perfect fine and easier for multi tabling...your edge while playing a small # of tables as well if your focused can be quite high in my experience.. people who say "dont buy in for less than 100bb"= elitist who know they have a edge from the fish/regs who buy in for 100bb or idiots who want to sound cool
