      I like to play a bit of mid-stack strategy sometimes.

      I seem to have a problem buying into a cash table for 40BB.

      I'm forced to buy in for the table max all the time.

      Anyone else have this problem?

      Hey chiliyen,

      I think PokerStars removed all (or most) of the MS tables. No doubt a mid-stacker will confirm or deny.

      Regards

      You can buy in for 40bb (but not at the deepstack tables I guess), for like 24 times in a 20 hour period or so, but if you leave the table with more than 40bb, you will have to buy in for at least the amount you left with.

      Just found out that if you cash out 8 tables within an 20 hour period for more than you bought in for, you will be unable to buy in for the table minimum on any table in that range until the 20 hours has expired. I guess that puts the mockers on Pstars mid-stack play. There is not enough traffic on other sites, so perhaps MSS is dead, unless you play over multiple sites I suppose. Not worth the effort for a lazy dude like me.
