Thank you for answering the question.
This isn't at all about what I want or don't want. I just stated my situation and wanted to know which avenue had the higher potential win rate. I'm just trying to survive and build a bankroll.
So what you're saying is that if I have enough to play 2-5 with a 300 buy- in, I have enough to play 1-3 buying in for 500?
What would you consider enough? I have 30 buy-ins for 300, whichever game I choose, and 2 months living expenses. So, if I put the 500 on the 1-3 is the variance low enough for me to proceed with only 18 buy-ins?
I really can't afford to go broke. Also, if I try to play on too short of number of buy ins it's too much stress for me and up my danger of tilting.
I guess that leads to another question. If I am able to build my bankroll to 30 buy ins of 500, should I continue to play the 1-3 for 500 or buying in to the 2-5 with 100 bb enough to start trying to move up?
