Curious what peoples opinions are on the cap games as far as brm

If 16 tabling them i feel you would need at least 80 buyins but want to know how others feel about these games

Matt a good rule of thumb is to always start with 100 buy ins at any level of sng and 200 buyins for mtts due to the higher variance in the mtt's.
As you may or may not be aware I am always taking 25 of those buyins and playing at a specified level of sng as long as I can start with 100 buy ins.
If my buyins are cut in half or put another way if I drop to 25 buyins at a lower level I must drop down to that level until I hit 25 buyins at the higher level then i move up again.
This strategy will almost always ensure good results IF you are playing strong poker.

ie:

Starting bankroll - 100 x $1.50 = $150
take 25 of those buyins and start playing 25 x $.150 = $37.50

SB - $37.50
1. 123456789 - $1.50 4/9 0.00 Current bankroll - $36.00
2. 123456790 - $1.50 4/9 0.00 CB - $34.50
3. 123456791 - $1.50 7/9 0.00 CB - $33.00

8. 123456796 - $1.50 4/9 0.00 CB - $27.82
9. 123456797 - $1.50 4/9 0.00 CB - $26.32
10. 123456798 - $1.50 6/9 0.00 CB - $24.82
11. 123456799 - $1.50 6/9 0.00 CB - $23.32
12. 123456800 - $1.50 1/9 5.81 CB - $27.63

20. 123456809 - $1.50 6/9 0.00 CB - $14.13
21. 123456810 - $1.50 1/9 5.81 CB - $18.44
22. 123456811 - $1.50 4/9 0.00 CB - $16.94
23. 123456812 - $1.50 3/9 2.32 CB - $17.76

31. 123456820 - $1.50 7/9 0.00 CB - $13.89
32. 123456821 - $1.50 8/9 0.00 CB - $12.39

we have now dropped below 25 buyins for the $.50 games and should now drop down! You see!

Gidee Up!

Cowboy I guess by CAP games matt0278 means cash games with max all in you can go with hand (for example, 40bb per player).

Its depends on your style. Are you flipping type or more conservative player? I would recommend 50 buy-ins minimum to 75 (which might be too much). Buy-in 40bb stacks.
