  • $0.25/$0.50 NLHE Cap Games

    So, I've been building my bankroll at the cash tables over the past week or so. So far, I've been succeeding, and it's been a lot of fun. I'm currently playing at the $0.10/$0.25 tables, which have a buy-in of $25 per table. I've noticed that the next two levels are the $0.25/$0.50 cap games (also having a $25 buy-in), and the $0.50/$1 tables ($100 buy-in). Since my bankroll can afford the $25 buy-ins, I'm considering moving up to the $0.25/$0.50 tables (since it's technically not a move up).

    I'm wondering if anyone has any information on cap games that they'd like to share, and I'd like to know if people think it's a good idea to treat the different $25 buy-in tables the same way, with respect to bankroll management. I certainly want to make my way to the $100 games ASAP (which probably won't be that soon, but I can dream), so I want to max out the money I'm bringing in, so my bankroll can build as fast as possible.

    Anybody have any advice? Thanks for reading.

    Edit: There do seem to be $50 tables before the $100 tables. Just to point that out.

    Was watching you from the rail
    IMO you was pretty hot
    Keep to what you are good at
    If it aint broke don't try to fix it
    I'm sure you will build your bankroll staying as you are
    Don't try to run before you can walk

    All the best at the tables

      Thanks spike. I'm certainly getting better at Hold'em, but let's just say I could still use a Live Training or two.

      I accidentally sat at one of the $25 cap tables. Might as well give it a shot. I'll probably leave pretty quick.

        i've had sucess by useing 1/10 of my bankroll on any one session. Each session has a goal, to win 10 percent. i.e.
        $10 bank - so I go $1.00 on the .02/.04 limit cash game. Goal win .10
        $20 bank - go $2.oo on the .05/.10 limit cash game. win .20
        ect......
        i am at the $80 dollar bank now, risking $10 on the .25/.50 limit games. win $1
        The neat thing is that I always come off the table w/ a win of 20-30%.
        If i play a .55 SnG,,,i'll go to the cash table, win my buy in and bank the rest.
        In 6 weeks, my bank has grown from $4.00 to $83.00. And thus with bigger buy-ins, the bank grows faster. Add the VPP bonus, PSO monthly bonus, freerolls, it just keeps getting better.

        and the $1500 i'm gonna snag the end of March will be so sweet,,,,,yeah right

          That's very interesting, D. I enter and play for a little under 50% (might change that up, though). Glad to hear you're doing well. The 10% system is definitely an interesting idea.

          And the cap game didn't work out. Lost $20 within the first two orbits. Back down to the 10/25 games. I'm such a fish.

            lol,,,i heard that I did. I just try to stay within the confines of my bankroll, and try not to expose more of it than I have to. The variance of the limit struture is easy to handle. And the fishing is really good,,,and he waited,,,and he waited,,,,then bamm,,,,one hand, 10%, and gone

              I believe that's known as a hit-and-run.

                Don't move up the limits too fast man. The faster you can make money, the faster you can lose it too. I've read advice on the PSO talking about moving up the limits fast and 'taking a shot' at it, even though your not 100% properly bankrolled. I guess if your feeling confident and lucky, you can try it. Just make sure your fully prepared to move back down the limits if your luck is no good.
