      Today I got my 50$
      Ive been playing for 4 hours now.

      Im sticking to strategy, I went down to 30$ then up to 48$

      So after 1000 hand im down 2$.
      I have about 10% flop seen. I dont really get much cards and went I do I dont have any caller to my standard raises.

      Its a long until I can move up to NL25.

      Oh yeah

      Anybody can tell me how long it took them to move up from NL10 to NL25

      In other word, build a 500$ bankroll. I play 4 table at a time.

      Well i think you mean $150 cause once you hit that you can move to NL25. And i have been playing since sunday and increase my bankroll to where i am now playing at NL25

      He is talking about SSS bankroll and if u know it takes 20 B-I to play BSS howcome are you using only 5? If u dont have enough money you should stick to SSS until you reach 200$ Otherwise you have a big risk of going broke.

      Hi fay123,

      As already mentioned by imsnon0ob; to follow good BRM you should have atleast 20 Buy-ins of the level - which is why we advise playing SSS before starting with BSS. If you are playing BSS with just 5 Buyins - just a little bit of bad luck will have you bankrupt.

      At the moment you should worry about moving up to NL25 yet - you most likely still have a lot to learn and a lot to improve in your game. I know from my own experience that my first few weeks I was busy finding and getting rid of errors in my game. Although I thought I played really well - I was in fact still making many mistakes. During this learning period I cleared my bonus - and with the extra money moved up to NL25 and NL50. Afterwards I switched to BSS - went back to NL10 and then moved on upwards :)

      Best Regards,
