Dine n' Dash

IF you've been reading my blog, you know all about my amazing November. One of my conundrums about it is the massive bankroll I am sporting on Bodog. I seem to be constantly thinking about what might happen if one day I wake up and it goes the way of FullTilt or Poker Stars and getting my money out becomes impossible. But, I'm also enjoying playing at higher stakes for the first time, well, ever online. So I have tried to put those fears out of my mind...for now.

Now I know certain people are going to fault me for this process, but I have been doing the Dine n' Dash method of playing cash online. While playing 50 and 100NL, if I go up one buy-in, I leave. That could be 10 minutes or 2 hours. Granted, these levels have been almost ridiculously soft at times and I am sure my long term winrate would be much better if I grinded more, know what, I don't really enjoy doing that. Why do it if I am not enjoying it? If it makes me happy to leave showing a profit, then I should leave when I feel that way. Granted, it doesn't always go that way ( I left with a 2 buy-in loss last week), but by and large, I've left the tables with a $100+ profit. And, if you block your brain from extrapolating the eventual demise of Bodog, that could easily equal $1500 or so profit from the site monthly.

So, I am going to stop withdrawing at around $4000...40 buy-ins for 100NL. And see how that goes.

In other news, hotel rooms are booked for the WSOP Circuit Event. I plan on playing in two events while I am of which may be the Omaha 8 event. I'll also try to satellite into the Main and play lots o' cash. If you plan on being there Dec 6-10, let me know!

  1. 40 buy ins is a ton of $$$ to keep on there - particularly with the method you're describing. You should target somewhere around $1000-$2000. Remember, you shouldn't really be operating under "normal" bankroll rules in this time of Black Friday. You should work from bare minimum and move down and up in stakes as needed.
