No i did not misunderstand ........ I read it on a bill board thingy of which there was a roped off area where there were poker tables and people playing.
so I asked the attendant (person who takes your name etc. & shows you to the table)
Anyway the min was $100 and the stakes were $5/10 $10/20 and something else even higher - I got that
What I was saying was that if I sat at the table with $200 @ $5/$10 I'm going to go broke in about 3 orbits if that, it will likely cost #30-$50 preflop so if you miss the flop - you can only miss 7 and more likly 4-5 hands and your dead. Even playing tight I can't Imagine buying in for only 20 BB and lasting long
At Casino Rama they offer $1/$2 $2/$5 $5/$10 a MUCH better mix IMHO than Blue Herron were min game being offered is $5/$10 with a min $100 buyin (I had $200 with me, what if I only bought in for $100 that's 10 BB that seems like robbery to take peoples money like that) So I just played some blackjack instead and walked out down $40 after 2 hours, disappointed to have not played any poker - and I should have walked out after the first hour, I was up $350 on top of the $200 I came with, a new person came sat down to my right and it never went the same i got out down $40, could have been down $200, sad about the poker though
