      Currently 2x 0,5$/1$ FR and 1x 0,25/0,5$ FR. Progress is slow but constant. As soon as I move to >1000$ I'll switch to 2x 0,5$/1$ SH.

      Here's graph

      Nice and constant graph Cakara. Have you ever posted in the FL sample forum? Maybe this is a good idea to get confident when switching to SH. :)


      I play 3/6$ and 5/10$ SH: (Yeah I don't moved up since a year but I play only 1-2k hands/month).

      I play 1-2 FR or .50-1 SH when I get the time.

      As usual though I don't seem to find nearly enough time.

      What do you mean 2x .5/1$ cakara? 1000 BB is rather conservative :D Also don't you play like 10-20 pokerhammer?

      I used to play mostly 5-10 and sometimes higher, but I had to withdraw my bankroll after the company I worked for closed down and I was out of work for a short while.
      Found a new job and restarted my poker career with $50 from pokerstrategy. :)

      I don't get much time to play because my job/family keep me occupied, but I'm slowly moving back up through the limits.

      Lost my gold status as well this month!

      I'm going to have to quit my job and ignore my family. :D

      I'm playing two tables of .5/1$ and one of .25/.5$. I'll be playing three of .5/1$ from tomorrow (I hope so). When I build up to 1100$ (I add a little cushion) I'll start twotabling .5/1$ SH.

      I played 6 tables of FL FR 0.5$/1$ for a while, but then I quited for a while and withdraw my BR. Now I got back through the FPP program(Sng qualifiers) and I played FR FL 0.5$/1$, but I started running badly so I'm giving a shot at SH 0.25$/0.50$ and doing quite well.

      If you want some advise:

      At the beginning play only in the evening and it won't be much of a difference.

      4-6 tables of 0.5/1.0 SH on PP but -$40 after ~14k hands.. not bad, but +$200 - $300 would be much better

      FR was completly different game :(

      My history:
      started at pokerstrategy as NL player, grinding the microstakes, didn't like the variance, so just before I cleared the bonus I switched to FR FL, and I'm still happy I did.
      started at 0.1/0.2 FR, after a small 6k hands and a 2.83BB/100 I switched to .25/0.5 FR and breaking even for 8k hands. So I switched to 0.25/0.50 SH, making a 5.98BB/100 for 8k hands. When the time was right I switch to .5/1 SH, good for 4.78BB/100 over 5.5k now. I'm making some shots at 1/2 now and then, but after 1k I'm breaking even, so I don't think I'm fully ready for it (and neither is my bankroll).
      started at titan, cleared the non-PS pokerstars bonus after 15 days, and now I'm halfway my everest bonus. Usually 4 tables.

      you didn´t like the variance and therefor switched to fl ? ^^
      interesting attempt :D
      the variance when playing fl (especially sh) is just killing :P

      when i look at your stats i think you´ve already noticed that. luckbox :)

      don´t be afraid of playing 1/2. the opponents are horrible for the most part and to be breakeven over 1k hands is absolutely standard. just keep playing (when your bankroll can afford it ^^)

      I started out on FR, and hardly had any variance...
      I know variance is still there, and I've encountered it on SH games, but losing a buy-in on NL feels much harder then losing a couple of pots in FL.
      I think because of the higher blinds you can play... if you lose 10$ on NL, it's a whole buy-in on 0.05/0.10, if you lose 10$ on FL, it's "only" 10BB.

      of course the swings are much tougher in terms of bb but a "bb" at fl is a bigger part of your bankroll than it is in nl (at least it should be ^^). so i think you can´t compare it like that.
