First time ever playing live poker at the casino tonight. It is a long weekend here in Canada, so there should be quite a bit of soft action going around. I will be playing $1/$2 and buying in full once I am comfortable. By comfortable, I mean that I never have to handle chips when I play online, so I am kinda intimidated by calculating the pot size and money behind that my opponents have, if that makes any sense. I'm going with $600, so 3 full buy-ins.
Over the next while, I will be saving to build a live roll (if I enjoy it) and add to my online roll so I can play 50NL once I have proven myself at 25NL. Plus, when I deposit, it helps to grow the roll quicker. Results aside, I play better when I know I can go broke 100 times as opposed to 30 bi's. Live is a bit different, since I don't have the luxury of playing lower than $1/$2. I have the ability to replenish my roll, so I can build as I play.
Let's hope I play well.
