I think you have been trying to forget Phaedrus, after the Cake sessions.............
Yes, it is 300BB, or $300 for $0.50/1.00 and take 10% or 30BB ($30) to the table. This should be sufficient for a normal or passive game, with average or little preflop raising respectively.
If the table is very agressive with lots of players raising/reraising there are 2 options:
Leave (if you are a newbie)
Play with double the normal Table Roll (TR) is you are not a newbie and comfortable at the table.
If the table is very agressive play your normal game but do not bother with preflop raising, let them do it for you - use position (the button) a lot more, play OOP a lot less (i.e hardly at all), fold every SB without AA-TT and play Red/Blue/SC from the BB taking advantage of the discount to call.
If you do start out at the 0.50/1 limit level, it possible to start at $5 and work build a BR from there once you have good experience. I am conducting an experiment at the minute for a client to see if it is possible to earn £10 ($14) per hour at this level, as this is equal to £20K ($28K) per annum based on a 40 hour week (2000 hours per year). The fall in the value of the £ to the $ means it is possible for a less experienced player to earn an average UK salary by playing at the lower levels instead of the $3/6 level as was required before - where a less experienced player should not play (without coaching).
Results so far are encouraging (and it hasn't interfered with my 2009 MTT goals which are seperate to this experiement......)
and hand 1 on the 17th Feb......
and that's about it.
