      Hi Guys,

      Been playing rush $4 + 40c SNG - small sample I know but - 820 played - ROI 31.6%.

      My bank roll is now a fraction under $1300 and the next step up is $11 + $1 - what would you recommend?

      Cheers

      You have more than 100 BI for the $11s, so you can have a go at them. Just be prepared to move back down, when you fall below 100 BI.

      as Ickki said :) as i've (you too) heard, they're so soft, that only doomswitch could cause some problems. Also, you could start with a mix of both stakes, so you'll not be playing as much on 12s, but you'll get confidence and will be able to stick to them only :)

      btw, how many tables you play at a time?

      Could anyone suggest a a stop-loss for taking shots at this level?
      10BIs?

      depends on your risk preference, whether you play professionally... whether you can re-deposit if you go broke etc....

      im a NIT and i prefer a 20-25% of my BR stop-loss when taking shots.

      @ Ickki - Sound advice

      @ Lessthanthree 20% it is then

      @ Bigniux - Cheers. Usually play 3 at a time in the early stages - if I go bust in one whilst approaching top 50-60 in another I tend to wait before firing up another table - this is when I play most aggressively and when I pay more attention to opponents, position and stack sizes. If I get to FT I find the pace so slow in comparison I will fire up another table.

      Love it when I get ITM on 3 tables at the same time. :D

      @ Justkyle :P (so you don't feel left out

      ........ 48 played - Bankroll now over $3000.

      Played -- 48
      ITM -- 11
      FT -- 5
      First -- 2
      First - Fifth -- 5
      Profit -- $1493
      ROI -- +259%

      Stick with them or move on up with a stop-loss?

      Cheers
