For Full Tilt players who are under-bankrolled (and I can’t think of many who aren’t right now), it’s important to get as much out of your bankroll as you can. I started playing micro stakes on FTP, and I’ve learned a bit about how to maximize a minimal amount of money. Here are two things to start the series:
1. Learn your HORSE limit games. Why? By learning your limit games, you protect yourself from a micro-bankroll’s worst enemy: variance. By playing No-Limit Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha, you expose yourself to a greater upside with a staggering potential for loss. By playing Stud variants, you have less upside potential over a given period of time, but can protect your bankroll because the suck-outs won’t hurt you nearly as bad. I am not an advocate of playing limit Hold’em simply because you will see an enormous number of ridiculous suck outs–raise your aces all you want, and that jackhole wit 7-4 offsuit will still shoot for the straight.
2. Exploit benefit programs and promotions. Happy hour on FTP is a perfect example of this. If you can fit in some cash games during happy hour, you can rack up points that can be used to enter tournaments or sattelites. Even playing micro-limit games, I have been able to rack up thousands of these useful little things to enter larger tournaments, and nothing feels quite as good as cashing in a tourney you didn’t pay to enter.
Addto the equation, and you have a sure winner.
