# 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

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.
