Is NL5 $0.02/0.04 or just $0.02/0.05?

      Your starting capital is $50. According to the chart, you can start playing on NL5 (the blinds here are $0.02/0.05) with this bankroll.


      The thing is I only see $0.02/0.04 tables at PartyPoker. Does the same strategy apply to these compared to $0.02/0.05?

      As far as I know PS recommends that bankroll should consist of 25 buy-ins, where one buy-in equals 100 big blinds. So, with 50$ you can start playing on 0.01/0.02$, because 0.02$ x 100 = 2$ and 2$ x 25 = 50$. For 0.02/0.04$ you would need 100$ and for 0.02/0.05$ 125$.

      Hey dustyoshea,

      Use the Big Blind to work out which level you're at, a few example bellow:

      $0.02 / $0.04 = NL4
      $0.02 / $0.05 = NL5
      $0.05 / $0.10 = NL10
      $0.10 / $0.25 = NL25
      $0.50 / $1.00 = NL100

      NL4 & NL5 are very similar only a $0.01 difference :D

      As long as you have 25BI's at that limit you're fine, but with the $50 you should be playing NL5, or you can could deposit on top of your free $50 and jump into the NL4's :)

      I was just curious because there are no NL5 tables at PartyPoker. I guess I'm off to NL4 then. Thanks.
