Default How I make easy money

I go to a high limit ring game, Bring the max in. On the first hand i go all in no matter what i get and collect the blinds. I then switch tables and do it again. It works pretty good, I recommend youy all to try it

So if I go to a 10/20nl table and push as you do I would need to do it about 67 times and get away with it for every $2000 I lose....

Maybe if I won a few billion on the lottery.. maybe

It would be more profitable to play roulette

Dunno coz you wouldn't lose every time. And the likelyhood is only one of 5-6 hands will ever call you. Of course i do hope one day you get called abnd lose three times in a row.

Actually, there is a math way to see if this is viable. Let's assume that you will be called by TT+ and AK and AQs. So you take the odds of someone having one of those hands, pokerstove a random hand against that range, and plug it all in. I think that buying for 25 BB instead of 100 BB would be way better because what you expect to lose when you are called is much less and your expectation when you win will still be the same.

Sounds like I've got something fun to do in the morning.

You would have to adjust the range of hands that will call if you assume a short buy in.

Also, if short stacks are in the game they will call with a wider range of hands.

Anyway, if you do this on this first hand you have to pay a full blind to maybe pick up a blind.

I think a shorthand game would help a lot too. In a 6 person max table, there are at most 5 other potential callers so the likelyhood of SOMEONE picking up a callable hand is less than a 10 person table.

Ok, let's have some fun!

Within this range of hands (TT+,AQs+,AQo+), the odds of someone having one of those hands is 4.7%.

In a 9 handed game, someone will call you 28.3% of the time. 6 handed, 17.7%.

So here is our formula. X is the buy-in in BB. Y is the net amount.

Y=.717(1.5) + .283(.257X) - X for longhanded
Y=.833(1.5) + .177(.257X) - X for shorthanded

Here's a chart with the results.

BB LH SH
25 -22 -22.61
50 -45.2 -46.48
100 -91.65 -94.2

Okay, these numbers are counter-intuitive. It would seem to make more sense to me that you lose less in SH because there are less hands to run into. The more I look at my formulas, the more something seems wrong. I can't put my finger on it, but I have the feeling that I'm adding or subtracting when I shouldn't.

Feel free to point out the probably obvious errors I made if I don't get to it 1st.

And I know that I haven't adjusted for tighter/looser calling. I wanted to get some numbers 1st and then I can make the adjustments.

put the second X in the parenthesis. You only Bet X BB when they call you

Y=.717(1.5) + .283(.257X-X)
Y=.833(1.5) + .177(.257X-X)

Essentially you're losing 3/4 of X everytime someone calls and making 1.5 BB everytime they all fold.

so the table looks like this

BB LH SH
25 -4.18 -2.04
50 -9.44 -5.33
100 -19.95 -11.90
