What's your annual salary? How much do you have in your 401k or IRA?
His roll is essentially his income, or it can be closely estimated from knowing his roll.
In case you find my words rude, I apologize. Based on the information I fetched from this thread, I understand that you are playing under rolled for a living in a hyper swingy game. 100 hours is no sample. even my graph on nearly 1k hours is just a swing
I guess, but i didn't start a discussion thread about it, and say to ask me anything.
I’m surprised it has taken this long for @Anthony Martino to lose 3 buy-ins in a session. In PLO it is very easy fo find spots where Hero is a 40-50% equity favorite but only putting in 30% of the money. While this is a long term winning proposition, in the short term it is very easy to lose 3 of these in a row and be down $3k. Have it happen a few sessions in a row and the bankroll will take a massive hit.
I would consider going with 4 buy-ins of $500 and a last bullet of $1k if needed. It will give you more chances to win one of those big coin flip hands.
then it takes forever to fill those seats because of a combination of the room sometimes being slow calling names
This is something you must absolutely address with the brush or poker manager. Notwithstanding that you are playing for a living, you are a (I assume) well known regular to the poker staff there. They should be placating you by filling your game up ASAP with how much you're paying in rake day in and day out.
As someone who has never considered playing for a living, I'm curious to know how you know this about the 5/10/25 player pool if you're regularly playing 1/2.I know which players at the table are going to have strong hands and which are prone to spewing and play accordingly.

Is the pool that shared between the stakes? It seems odd that people would be moving up and down that much considering one game likely plays 3-4 times higher than the other.
This is actually my fourth time hitting my daily loss limit since I started in September. Depending on the lineup and stack sizes I do adjust my buyins up or down accordingly.
