I am currently a 1/2 player and over the last few months I feel like I am getting nowhere. I usually play afternoons at the only casino really good for poker by me. Lately my image there is costing me money. Most players won't tangle with me unless they have great hands, and some almost never will. I have had people sit at my table and immediately ask for a table change, then verbally announce that I always take their money. The irony is I am barely making a profit.
My bankroll is around 4k and the 2/5 game is a 2000 max 200 min buy in. Considering the small size of my roll I am afraid to take a shot at it without playing short stacked but I really need to build a roll.
My options are basically to keep playing 1/2 300 buy in
Take a shot at 2/5 with 500
Or leave my area and go to Vegas or Florida
Any advice would be helpful.
By the way I would not mind going to Florida but I am worried about my bankroll. So I guess I would like to build to 10k first but I am not sure if it is possible at 1/2
