However in NL cash, all your decisions (the vast majority of which are in 20BB and less pots) are going to be overwhelmed by the decisions you make in the 200BB ones.

Possibly true, but not necessarily.

So if a hand has really no chance of winning you a 200BB pot, is it worth all the aggravation?

It can be -- if you are good about not playing 200BB pots with that hand.


None of the above is meant to be snide, though I'm sure it sounds that way. My general thoughts on AK: I use effective stacks of approx 50BBs as a dividing line. Below that, I'm very agressive and pretty happy to push all-in pre-flop. Post-flop I'm mostly fit or fold but usu willing to get it all-in if I flop TPTK. You probably are fine with that style from your tourney experience.

Above 50BBs I play it much more passively, looking to keep my hand disguised most of the time and trying to keep the pot relatively small. Hard to generalize much beyond that.

As always, post hands.
