Hey PS.

Just a quick question, how much do you buy in for in NL 2 BSS? should I buy in for 5 dollar or 2 dollar?

Hi Heffron89,

You can buy in for either \$2 or \$5, depending on what you like.

\$2 is fine because its 100bb (make sure to rebuy) and this is what the BSS is designed for

But if you are confident with deepstack play then \$5 would be ok because you can gain a lot more potential value from your monsters.

You should aim for \$5 to maximise ur value and because often enough person who has learned and read strategy (!!) is capable of beating NL2 with no problem.

Ya pretty much - But i forgot to mention only do it if you have the proper BRM for \$5 stacks

How can you buy in for \$5?

Isn't the maximum buy in 100x BB which is only \$2?

every site ive played on (never played on stars) unless deepstacked table max bi is 100bb so nl2 = \$2 Nl4 =\$4 as far as i know thats were the nameing comes from (could be wrong)
but yes if following proper brm and confident in your BSS play \$5 will maximize rewards but at same time maximize risk its your call wichever you are comfortable with if you do decide to go the \$5 route reading the guide on playing deepstacked cant hurt at all

i would also worry that some of the tactics used for BSS would not work well @ NL2 or 4 I honestly have no experience useing BSS at these levels but while you would have fold equity i think there are too many players who cannot lay a hand down at these levels but someone with experience in this area would know better
