I've decided to develop a system that I implemented last night. Game was 5/5. I came to the casino with 3K. My new system consists of buying in and rebuying (if I have to) 500 at a time no matter how much I'm stuck. This gives me 6 bullets per session. Played last night and lost my first two buy ins. Down 1K. My old self would reload for 1K in this spot. My new self re bought a third time for my new stick-to-it approach of 500. So now I'm in the game for 1500. I double up twice and win a couple of small pots and book a win of 840. I'm going to implement this long-term and see how it goes. Erdian, as you mentioned, the shorter buy in enables me to get it in with as low an SPR as possible when I'm an equity favorite on most hands pre.

Thanks Erdian. I usually buy in for 1000 which puts me at 60 buy ins. I may try the 500 buy in if I start to run bad over the next 5 or 10 sessions.

Decided to take a shot at the local PLO 5/5 game in my area (KC midwest). I've been playing 3 times a week about 6 hours a session. Game plays with a $10 button straddle. So essentially 5/10. I play a nut peddling style and try to pick off the whales who overplay 2nd nuts, weak draws, etc. Been running about even since I started playing about two weeks ago. I'm decent at PLO having played it full time a few years ago. Broke even for the whole year which I felt was fine since I was just learning the game back then. Been playing NL since and have built up a decent roll. I fully understand PLO variance and we run it twice in this game when all the money goes in, so that helps a bit with variance reduction. My mental game is fine. Hardly ever tilt. Here's my question: Playing this PLO game with a 60K bankroll. This about right? Under rolled? Don't sweat it, you've got enough? Would welcome any and all feedback on the roll question.
