I thought I would answer some viewer mail. I'll try to do this somewhat regularly, so if you have questions, let me know:
A: Lately my average BI is probably like $300 (since NL 400+ games are somewhat scarce - especially for full ring on Merge). I haven't been putting in much volume lately because my interest rate newsletter business has been surprisingly busy (later post), and with the holidays, birthdays and my researching my book, I've been a little busy.
Q: How is your play split between FR and 6max?
A: I probably play 60% 6max and 40% full ring... mostly because there are more 6max games going. Sadly, FR is a dying game midstakes and above (NL400+), so small stakes FR regs should probably start getting more comfortable with 6max. I think the small stakes full ring game could be around for a while, since a lot of the live noobs will be more familiar with the full table, but I just don't think you can move up and grow as a player playing just full ring NLHE.
A: Yes. In the US, I think Merge is the only site worth playing if you are a mass multitabler. The software is reasonably good (I actually prefer it to Stars, after a few minor fixes), and if you don't mind mixing up 6 max and FR, you can generally find enough NL200+ tables to play like 12 hours a day. At least one skin allows for large cashouts (still takes a few weeks tho), so that is less of a barrier. I don't like Cake since the HUD is limited to that session only, which makes it more difficult for a multitabler (especially since I don't take a lot of notes). But I know a guy who just had a 5 figure month on there, so if you like playing a more read-less poker, that might be worth a shot. Bodog is just retarded - I can't play just 4 tables (or whatever it is), and I heard some/all their tables went anonymous, and I thought they were supposed to be spun off or something this year. AND virtually nonexistant VIP benefits. Sorry - you don't deserve my business.
If you have any questions you would like me to answer in a future post, let me know. I know I owe one reader some answers to some trading questions, so I'll try and address them in a trading update post soon.
