There are some games (CAP Games, Heads Up Cash game, etc) that aren't available to micro stakes players which kind of bugs me a little because i think these would be fun to try. the lowest stakes you can play are the 25c 50c lvl. So why aren't these games available to Micro Stakes players?

The lowest CAP games are the .25/.50 games. You can only bet 20 bb's ($10) on any one hand, so it plays like a short stack 10 NL game.

My bad eagle I should have read your post in more detail. I thought you were saying that some games weren't showing up in your lobby. Not that there were certain games that are only available starting at a higher buy-in.

Face palm.

If i'm not mistaken, .25/.50 is still considered micro. I think low starts at 1/2. And they are a lot of fun. Just pretty high variance. Watch a few of these things. There are ppl playin absolute garbage for stacks. But sinse a lot of pots are all in pre (20bb) the variance can and will get ya. You def. Need a roll sizable enough to handle the swings that are inevitable in these games. Was playin em b4 BF.. GL

Well if were going by pokerstars Low starts at .25/.50. And i think my roll isn't big enough to play them($110-$125).... now mind you i did have a few hands just to try it and i enjoyed it but i can't risk my roll like that
