Taking for example (hypothetically) that you have 1m (play money) .either you should go with max chips on a table with 400k as max buy-in or you should go with minimum chips on a table with 200k Or 400k as minimum buy in (more skills are required including bluff if necessary and to fold even with good cards at same time...much faster win and much faster loss ...

There is this concept: bankroll management. You can't enter a table and just sit down with all your chips, that's a real bad idea. In general you might want to have 10 to 20 buy ins with your bankroll. Example: If you have 100 euro/dollar on your account, you should be playing on tables with around a 10 euro/dollar buy in. So if you go broke, you only lose ...

Low stakes poker is otherwise known as "no fold 'em" poker. Most players for low stakes are "calling stations." This causes you to alter your strategy in two ways: First, when you raise with your big hands (big pairs and AK), as you should, realize that you will raise people in rather than out. That is, you will occasionally win with hands that have a 20-30 ...

Many people have an impression that because the chip leader at a table has the majority of the chips, they should be "bullying" the table. This isn't the best way to look at the situation. What a large stack gives you is more utility. The utility to outplay your opponents by having the full arsenal of poker moves at your disposal. If you were short stacked, ...

You shouldn't be choosing a starting hand because it's been X amount of time since the last time you played a hand. The primary goal in poker is to win chips. You achieve this goal by: Identifying your opponents strategy. Determine, and implement, the maximally exploitative response. So, before you even sit down at a table, whether it's online or live, ...

I have always followed the Sam Farha mantra: Against a good player I can outplay him, but against a poor player I need a hand. Good player recognize a situation in which they may not have the best likely hood of winning a hand. It could be argued it costs them pots, but on the long run it would be a profitable situation. Weaker players don't recognize ...

In lower stakes games I tend to not try the ticks to win the hand, i've found that if I just play my cards the weaker players will just knock each other out at which point I can usually win heads up (6-9 max SNG). Players at lower stakes tend to be quite predictable so if you're the aggressor driving the hand you've probably got the best hand, if they are ...

I definitely disagree that it is disadvantageous to play loose or "non standard" at the micro stakes. If you are an experienced midle/high stakes loose player you will have the skill to adjust your palystyle to the opponents. The problem is that if you dont know what you are doing you might often find yourself in bad situations and loose overall. On the ...

"...thus the player who simply gauges his odds the best is the one who can maximise his profit." This is always the case. Edit: Jubbat, right. There are many odds in poker (it should be obvious). Of particular importance are the odds your opponent will have a certain range based on their betting line. Also the odds they may react some way to your decisions ...

ABC poker at low stakes is the best way to play. I used to play 10-12 tables at a time on the $0.10/$0.25 tables. Really just folded until I got a strong hand (AA KK AK QQ JJ) and would raise pretty strong if in early positions or just go all in if there were limpers or raises. Maybe not so much with QQ and JJ. You can't focus on an individual table too ...

Many years ago I struggled to play at micro stakes level because the level of the players was so bad... Anyway, once you adapt to it, it's actually really really really easy to win at those micro stakes. If you want to play ABC poker, then go play on low stakes, just outside the micro stake region. Remember, at any level there will be fishes, and one does ...
