      you are gold Watto! very good. I noticed you got better! :D You can't play on Nl1000, i think, since there aren't a lot of FR tables at that point. But even the most experienced bss players complain about shortstacked players, since they don't really make them any money. There is a good way to fight sss players (see articles), but it's never good to play them, since they are so tight, and don't make plays that are really -EV. I would say at some point, players should probably switch, since the tables get emptier, and for the experienced player bss is often more profitable per hour. I think there are fishes everywhere, so in theory, NL1000 should be well possible, but I wonder whether it's realistic to do it for a living (which is basically what NL1000 is about anyway).

      I hope i answered your question.

      It is playable on any limit, with some adjustments of course. There are less tables of course, but for that reason we have a lot of pokerroms around)

      starting from NL 200. but you can start practicing on NL 100) simple things like stealing, squeezing, using stats, floating;) , etc.

      ah... could start that at lower limits already.

      Yes! :D

      The short stack strategy is playable on every limit. Of course you have to make certain adjustments, but it works fine.

      Good luck at the tables!

      I am improving but I do not see myself a s a true "gold player" in the sense. The tuition is paying off really well. I am well on my way to NL 50 playing SSS. I just want to get the bronze stuff down pat then maybe pick up a table or two to increase my win rate and move onto silv

      I want to take SSS to a limit (maybe NL 100 or NL 200) and get my BR to the conservative levels I have set and then start all over again with BSS.
