      Is there that big a difference or am i just that unlucky? I swear the NL5 tables hate me cause i just keep running into bigger hands. Or suckouts cause they're always fun too.

      Anyone else had transition woes?

      just play your A game and keep on grinding and results will come by themselvs ;)
      if you beat NL2 then I can't see the reason why not to bead NL5

      3 days straight of people getting lucky tends to wear you down. Though the people on NL2 still give me hope.

      Plenty of fish in the NL2 and NL5 sea atm so I'm sure with plenty of hard work and dedication you will beat this limit over a significant sample.

      No need to rush yourself though, make sure you leave plenty of time for studying/evaluating and improving your game week by week.

      Short term luck will not affect you on the long and windy road of a Poker career.

      Best of luck,
      Gary

      NL2 and NL5 are basically the same thing. NL10 is a bit tougher, with occasional reg here and there (tbh regs are pretty bad). If you can beat NL2 and have some kind of strategy, you can with ease crush NL5 the same way.

      I am thinking of switch from NL2 to NL5 on pokerstars. Is it normal, that there is like 5 times less NL5 tables comparing to NL2?

      i play 6 max and there are more than enough of them, i use filters for my tables and i still usually have 5 - 10 in the lobby at any time with more apearing all the time
