      Hi again. Las couple of days have been really busy and I havent had much time to grind. Finally had some playing time today and played like 7k hands in NL25. Deck was quite cold for me but atleast I earned a fair amount of points :heart:
      hope all is well

      Hello and welcome to our blogging section!

      Sorry for taking so long to find your blog, but now I'm here to follow!

      What site(s) are you playing?

      How are you experiencing the player level difference between NL10 and NL25? Reckon it'll be easy for you to keep crushing?

      Regards,
      Richard

      Hi. Nice to see somebody is actually following me. :D
      I´m currently playing on everest poker. It´s quite hard to get enough tables on the morning times, but overall I think everest is a quite good place to play.

      I dont think there really are any big differences between NL10 and NL25. Theres just some more regulars at NL25 and they are somewhat better, but they still have some leaks. :)
      Havent played much hands on NL25 yet, but seems like it should be beatable.
      Crushing NL25 and reaching NL50 soon would be awesome! :heart:

      C ya soon!

      Glad to see you're not suffering from the oh so common "fear" of moving up in that you'd be paranoid about everyone being better just because you're moving up, I've seen that in a lot of people who assume everyone's gonna be a huge shark and then end up playing sub-optimal.

      Bad regs are awesome, it leaves you knowing where to exploit rather than guessing how they may be weak. :)

      Best of luck with your plans moving up to NL50 soon then!

      Hi. This month has been really swingy. But it seems I´m finally running above EV, which is always a nice thing.

      Hello :) We're playing the same limit (my screenname is maistora1). From my experience nl25 is the same as nl10 if not easier because there are quite a lot of fishes. Good luck and I'll follow the blog :)
