Matt,

At first you wanted to try 50/50's, 24-48 table the 1.50s
to do this i need to play 640 1.50 fifty50s

Now you're trying cash games with unrealistic bankroll management
Do a search for poker bankroll management calculator or search the forums here to get a better idea of what you should be playing

Cap games are tough, as most regulars (with huge losing stats) will go all in with A8o and up and any pairs pre flop. You can make money fast, but you can also lose very very fast.

Good luck in what ever you try

You might want to consider some sage advice from the professional gamblers. According to a program I watched about playing table games, (blackjack), the professional player goes for a profit of 10% within a specific time limit. If they go over that amount, they play looser with the excess, hoping to do better. However, once they fall below the winning percentage, or they reach the time limit, they leave.

I know playing for a hundred percent gain on the casino table games is a formula for failure. Seen it more times than I like to remember when I was a dealer. Though you're not playing against the house, you might want to consider a more conservative expectation.

I just took 5th in a 1r for 480 and have a 675 br right now i think 10 buks at the cap game for fun wouldnt hurt too much. I played online poker for a living for 5 years recently taking a break having multiple 5 digit cashes and an ftops win. I am having trouble adjusting to play the lower limits again yes im just not sure if i want to grind mtts or not. just messing around a lil bit atm to see where i should be playing and whats most beneficial for me

playing the micro stakes player

1- Dont bluff, they are incapable of thinking higher then level 1, in most cases

2- Be prepared to get called down with nothing, they are hoping always to hit on the river

3- if you feel you are ahead, and are shoved on the river, you are probably beat

4= post flop play from micro players involves calling or shoving

5- make smaller value bets and keep value betting, but always keep in mind rule 3 when doing it

6- watch all of the training vids in the archive and the live sessions, most if not all are aimed precisely at these levels

7- Be prepared for a lot of bad beats, just comes with the nature of the newer players, they will play almost any two cards at times, and crush your AA

8- keep tilt to an absolute minimum, some of these sick beats will get you questioning your strategy

9- remember that even though you are a winning higher stakes player, that beating the micros is not as easy as you would think it should be, you will find yourself in many many spots that are just plain weird and confusing to a thinking player

10- Find a game and stick to it, stop jumping around wasting your time and money. Find a game, focus on it and crush it

Hope this helps a little, I know that you can always ask questions here, there are a lot of people that are way more knowledgeable than I, and are more than willing to help out

thanks roomik. i am doing very well at the micro mtts with alot of deep runs in the huge fields but im not sure i want to get back to just those. i have spent alot of timing focusing my learning on the fifty50s to understand them better so i can play them optimally when i am reading to buckle down and grind

i will be posting some hands in here for people to see if i go for
if you got the money(and losing wouldn't affect you financially) and you got above average knowledge of the game, it's worth it/there is no problem to take a shot! every card player will take a shot, whether it's a miniscule shot or their house and job shot lol! go for it! as for silverstar just get your feet wet at the tables and find which game(sng, ring, tourney etc..) works for you, silver star is easy when you find the method to your madness
