Managed to persuade my girlfriend to put off today's trip to the Griffith Observatory off for a few hours, and I got in a couple sessions of 24-tabling $6+.50 while she plays Karaoke Revolution in the next room. First set was good, +$44; second was a smash, +$136. Up to $767 now. Think I will switch to $15+1 somewhere in the $800-$1k range. This is a difficult decision on this occasion because I am very emotional, plus I want to move up very smoothly without having to drop down much if at all. A big issue with jumping up to more than 2x my current buy-in and a significantly tougher group of regs is my emotional reaction to misfortune. The smaller the percentage of my bankroll a swing is, the better I can handle it.

Playing notes:

QJ is an interesting hand. Normally it's about my minimum raising hand with low blinds in the hi-jack. And normally, almost any hand within my normal raising range with low blinds, if I would be offered 2:1 on a shove (now generally speaking about high blinds with no antes), I simply shove in the first place. But I think QJ is a bit too weak for this in the hijack. So if I have 1700-2100 and the blinds are 100/200 with no ante, I just open fold QJ in this position. None of: raise/folding, raise/calling, or open shoving seem likely to be good lines.

In a comparable situation, say I have 2500 and it's 100/200+25, still in the hijack, it's a more complex decision, since it's hard to have three or four out of four of the remaining players to act to have me covered, meaning the 2500 number doesn't usually have much relevance for effective stacks. Shoving, raise/folding, and raise/calling can each be viable depending primarily on the stack sizes, and to a lesser extent the player types.

I am noticing some regs are occasionally flatting with AA preflop in early rounds against other regs (me) to try to extract a stack-off after the flop. I think my larger early position raise sizes (4-6x) in the first round help justify this play. I wonder if reducing my raises to 3x with these villains at the table would help discourage their play by making it seem too risky.

I have played a ton of $15+1 profitably. You have no clue what the fuck you are talking about.

You sarcastically suggested that I made a poor decision in a hand I posted, when 1) apparently you do not even know what a stop-and-go play is, and 2) you denigrated the viability of employing that play against a player without personal knowledge of his ranges (which I have). So on what basis do you claim expertise on how I should manage my bankroll when I have played 25 thousand SNG's with a $40k profit?

Useless douchetard.

LOL

I liked that 22. go back and read what i wrote. that's a spot where as long as you get it in pre or stop-n-go i have no complaints.

You have admitted that you get emotional when you play-i can only assume certain things. Looking through the hand histories and reading everything you chat during sng's is only further proof of your irrationality.

"On what basis do you claim expertise on how I should manage my bankroll when I have played 25 thousand SNG's with a $40k profit?"
is that a serious question? you just wrote a blog stating you were going for supernova with a $240 BR.
you have made 40k lifetime and you have a $240 BR. GOOD JOB BRO.

Apparently the concept of withdrawing to pay bills is confusing to you. Additionally, the fact that I was a part-time player again until recently also confuses you. Reading is hard, I know.
