i'm doing this at the request of a bunch of people in gen strat, and because stars was cool enough to make that whole 8-game thing.if a mod wants to merge the "conquering mixed games" thread over here, that would be rad.gl donkeys!i suppose i may as well make myself a challenge, since this is a "challenge" thread, after all:i don't really play on stars much, but wcoop left me with about 300 bucks there, so ima challenge myself to grind it up to at least 6k by the end of the year playing only 8-game. i'll probably devote only about 1 hour a day to this challenge and start at 1/2 (even though this is a bit underrolled, i can move down if i drop to 200 and my winrate should be plenty big enough at 1/2 to have a low ROR).

I'm getting into HORSE MTT's a bit (mostly cuz I took down a $3.30 horse earlier this week) but I really think I have a good feel for all the games, so I'll definitely try to contribute. I'll probably be showing what not to do, initially... Great Idea OP.

I love the 8-game cash tables so far. 1/2 and 2/4 are very beatable if you have a basic understanding of the games.

1st page....WOOOOT!!!Checky...u may be underrolled for 1/2 to start, but I can promise you it won't matter. The players are HORRRRRRID from what i have seen thus far. Unless you run into a bad NL/PLO run, you should be totally fine.I found the players at 2/4 no better in 8 game.And as we all know...I am a FISH compared to you in all these games and I think I have 9/10 winning sessions fo far playing 8 Game.
If everyone plays by the same math rules we all lose to the rake.
If your a 70pct favorite to beat someone in general, why take an allin with them at 66/34 ? your giving them the edge.

yea, i actually have been playing 8/16 and 4/8 a fair bit (i have plenty on other sites--i just wanted to make this a challenge), and i haven't had a losing session yet over my first 8.from what i can tell so far, people play thusly:2-7: so laughably bad it's unrealLHE, NLHE, PLO: hilariously nittystud hi: no one is good at all, but since the game plays so loose, they help each others' station-y mistakes hurt less.stud8: LOLo8: people probably, as a whole, play the best in this game, but sometimes people are completely clueless
