Has anyone else noticed that sometimes there seem to be *more* fish at high stakes rather than fewer?
While dipping my toes back in the limit waters over the last couple of weeks, I have definitely found more fish at the 2/4 and 3/6 (Euro) tables compared to 1/2 (and 3/6 has usually been worse than 2/4). In the evenings I am finding a very consistent supply of fish in the 80/5, to 50/20 range. Some hyper aggressive postflop (60% bet percentage), some ultra-passive (15% bet percentage), but all pretty bad. I wonder if this is indicative that some players who are just there to gamble will simply play the highest stakes available - which is usually the 3/6 game.
The results have been very good, or at least I have managed to run reasonably well. The last few nights I have managed to rack up a few decent 10-30BB wins, which at 3/6 Euro is very nice indeed. This has dug me out of another hole which owed to my PLO disaster and a brief NL cooler. Meanwhile I am also racking up rakeback like gangbusters and shaping up well for a $100-$150 finish in the rake race.
