After reading a good deal of insight into the “Double-Ups vs. 50/50s” debate, I’ve come down on the 50/50 side of things, and have been playing mostly those for my cash game exposure. However, I’ve noticed a trend over the past few weeks. For one, I can’t really settle on an ideal size, since there are 50, 20 and 10 entry contests all within my price range. I’ve tried them all, with basically the same results. My main problem has been that, with remarkable consistency, I am almost always right along the cash line. In fact, when I play the smaller field 50/50s, I almost always have numerous entries that DON’T cash, with many that do. That seems really odd for a 50/50, so it makes me wonder what I’m doing wrong.
My questions are: 1. What is the ideal 50/50 field size? and 2. What does it mean when I’m consistently right at the cash line, and in many cases straddling it (cashing some, missing some, all with the same lineup)? Any help would be appreciated!
