Some Summer Plans & Live Cash Game Queries..

By: Croyd93 @ 20:46 (EST) / 275 / Comment ( 0 )

So as of today I'm not such a busy student who doesn't have time to play, still have Uni but I expect it to calm down now until after christmas. With the extra time I'm going to have free over the coming month I want to start making headway with one of my long term goals.

I've always had ambitions to forray until live play, this might sounds a bit ambitious but I always hear about how soft the play is, Dave has told me that a player who beats 2nl consistently can win at the lowest live stakes.I also have further motivation to get some practice in on the live felt, as I am hoping to make it out to Hong Kong this summer.

Hong Kong is very close to Macau. the Vegas of Asia, and is supposedly very accesible. From what I have read on the internet the games have value dripping from them. While I am out in Hong Kong it would be a shame to miss such an exciting opportunity, even if I could only play a four or 3 or 4 times it would be awesome. You never know if I did well I may be able to squeeze a week in before I leave.

If I'm to take this seriously I'd like to get a bit of live play in before hand to see how I fair, so this month is an ideal time to start. My only problem is, I don't know how big a bankroll I'd need. The lowest buy in at the local casino is £0.50/£1. I'm not sure if an online Bankroll should have a different number of buy ins to live cash games due to the speed of play.

Any opinions and advice would be great

I've set a thread as well as I realised I had quite a few queries/questions.
