      hi!!!

      i start playing cash games in WH with the free 50$ from PS.com now i have 30BI for NL10.

      when i play NL4 i take some shots to NL10 using BSS and it gave me the impression that at NL10 the are more fishes than NL4 or NL2 just in 1331 hands i have almost 35$ profit i don't κnow if its just an upswing but i have see crazy things at NL10 people here overplay their draws and they just go broke with Top pair.

      any advise would be welcome before i jump to NL10, and also it would be very helpful to see what other regulars at NL10 have to say...

      gl at the tables!!! :f_biggrin:

      Hi totalfish

      the important is to play in your comfort zone and be sufficiently rolled for it.

      so if you feel comfortable at NL10 go for it.


      regards

      Hi totalfish,

      Congrats on your progress so far, well played, and good luck with your move to NL10.

      I'm more of a tournament/sng player myself and personally suck (well - break even) at cash tables, so will leave it to far more experienced players to advise you on NL10.

      From what I've seen personally though you seem to get a lot of fish and crazy plays all the way through to NL25 and I dare say probably beyond. Keep concentrating on playing and refining your A-game (it's obviously working well for you so far) and you will soon get a feel for it with more hands under your belt.

      Keep thinking of the BRM though, sometimes it takes a while to get to grips with a new level and you may need to drop back down a couple of times before finally owning the place ;)

      Good luck buddy & let us know how you're getting on :s_thumbsup:

      thanks both of you, i will take your advices into my consideretion,

      i think i have a very good BRM and also i don't tilt very bad i have self control.
      i could say that these are my positive elements.

      i have many weakness in my game (WTSD to often, i can't lay down easy, hands like AA,KK,QQ when i know i'm beaten etc...) i will try to get better and better, i will study some articles, post some hands and do a revision before i move to NL10.

      yes of course!!!

      well i drop down to 254$ and will move down to NL4 until i have again 30BI for NL10 i think i'm not ready yet and i have a little pressure because the pots are twice bigger than NL4 and there are more money at the table. Also people in NL10 steal a lot more than in lower limits and also one weakness of me is the blind fight...

      Hi Totalfish

      All these hands are more or less standards, don't worry about such setups
      and coolers there is not much you can do about them... The best thing is often to just forget about them and concentrate on hands where the answer is not so black and white and were there are different approach that can be taken and you are not sure which one maximises your ev.

      Have thought about starting a blog?

      http://www.pokerstrategy.com/forum/board.php?boardid=1435

      It would be interesting to follow your progress through the limits.

      well yes you have right but i didn't play any interesting hand that needs further discution IMO, i guess i had a bad downswing but anyway i decided to move down. hmmm i'm not very interesting to start a blog because i'm too lazy to do that :p maybe when i'm regular at NL10 i will start my blog but i have not so much time to do that now...
