Buying in for More in NL Cash Games

Danny Negreanu wrote a nice post dispelling the common misconception that having a massive stack in a NL cash game is an advantage.
I played 3 1/2 hours of live 1-2NL Friday evening, coming out -$21 for my troubles. I made one brilliant play, one atrocious play, and one weak play - I decided they were so un-debateably uninteresting and obviously wrong that it made no sense to write the details, but it was good to get back in the flow after a month off - and to tune up for my trip to Vegas November 5th.
I think I finally decided what game I should challenge Negreanu to while I'm at the Wynn: Follow the Queen (yeah Bones, that joke was just for you.)
NYC's largest poker club was busted Friday night. 2+2 thread here. Daily News report here. In any case - this sucks for the future of live poker in NYC.

you are an idiot josh, he doesnt say that it's an advantage automatically, only if you rate to be one of the best players at the table.

you missed my point G. The point was that players who say "it's not fair that HE has such a big stack - that gives him an advantage" have no clue... Danny does a good job describing why this is a fallacy - a big stack does not create positive EV.. it's basically that simple.

gees so sensitive. Ok, yes big stack does not all by itself create +EV, but if you have +EV anyway you should probably have a big stack.
