      I just don't get it. Even if you're a super good player you still need to run very very well to achieve it. I just don't see that it is possible if you run normal

      table selection maybe?
      If I see more than 1 reg at a table, I'm outta there.
      You win from fish making mistakes at the lower stakes.
      I imagine that at high stakes you need a lot of info on the regs to be able to play them because that is the thing to do there I think.

      Oh, and keep playing your best, the margin is very thin. :D

      Yeah, can't really quit after 1 reg because then there wouldn't be any play :)

      I agree with lower stakes. I think the generally quoted win rate over 3BB/100 is actually achievable up to $1/$2 with a sample of 5K-10K hands. There are lots of factors: bad and too loose play, not defending BB enough, not raising enough buttons, sometimes people go to tilt.

      From $2/$4 the edges are very small and lot of it depends on reads against certain players and overall run in short term.
