Just watched Rounders again last night. Prepping up my return to poker in a month or so. Got several friends who are on the pro circuit. One is on a road trip playing at all the casinos in North America after having built his bankroll for the last seven years online. Another won $30k in the main last year, and a good friend is on a roll placing top 5 in two separate WSOP events! But there's also others who are stuck considerably.
Just finished Josh Duhamel's book and reading another on Omaha to refine my skills and re-evaluate my game. Thinking about building my bankroll back to where it was before and play in the 5-10 games. I despise 1-2 games. Online of course is a bit different. Playing .25-50 with multiple tables running can be the equivalent of playing one big game because you're accumulating VPP points/rake back and dragging down the occasion big pots.
Online cash games vs tournies. I'm debating.
