Reasons for Having 1/1 Cash Games

Postby cyrius14 » Wed Apr 07, 2010 11:13 am

Heyas!

I am just wondering why are there 1/1 cash games out there since it will totally change the dynamics of the whole texas hold'em poker game.

Not necessarily just 1/1 but games which have the same SB and BB. The only reason i can come up with is that these games are raked and it will make things easier for the dealer to calculate the rake to take out at the end of each round.

Any thoughts on this, guys?

1/1 buy in $ 100 (main reason i think)
1/2 buy in $ 200.

lower buy in

1/1 in an 8 handed game will blind you out in 50 orbits / 400 hands
1/2 in an 8 handed game will blind you out in 66 orbits / 528 hands

1/1 by nature more action.

1/1 makes stealing more worth it as there is 2 bb already in the pot no matter what instead of 1.5bb

rake not tough to count , every $20 take out $1 lor ( 5 %) rake or $33 take $1 ( 3%)

Obviously the thread starter is comparing 0.5/1 to 1/1 or similarly 1/2 to 2/2, instead of 1/1 to 1/2.
