      Do people think these are profitable? 2c ones have no rake so obviously are, but 9c+1c and 45+5c? 6 handed and 10 tables - 60 players! Thinking of trying a little experiment with them..

      Oh and this can be moved to a more necessary forum if a mod thinks so!

      Thanks!

      I played the 88man 88c on 888(top marketing team) when I first deposited there and they are so soft that the variance is much lower than you would expect. I don't think the rake is that high really either compared to like some of the $1+20c you see. You should be fine, good luck.

      i couldnt yet make a rule for it, but often the toughness and softness between different buyins levels are not directly proportional with increase in value of a buyin, and sure as hell are not linear proportional

      i found lot of games at 1.20 tougher than those at 5.50 for example

      one simple explanation of this strange phenomena is that NOW in .....2012 almost .... hehe

      more and more people employ correct money management strategy , so that even if i can beat the higher level , variance of the game and money management rules force me to play the lower ones.

      it was a nice surprise for me though to find softer games at higher buyins
