Could I still be a winning player on NL25 Zoom?

      After 31k hands on NL10 Zoom I had a winrate of 3.64 bb/100.

      I tried out playing NL25 and after almost 10k hands my winrate is -9.39/100.

      Should I just drop down to NL10 again and keep working on my game or can I still perhaps continue with NL25? I still have 18 buy-ins for NL25 (456$). Is there any chance that this still is variance? I put some potential winrates in the variance simulator and so far it does not seem that such results could be attributed to variance only.

      Hi Avatars91,

      I've moved this thread to the relevant board :)

      Kind regards,

      I'd suggest to reach at least 25 BI for the new level and return back when your loose 3-4 BI. Basic healthy BR management.

      Maybe start with one table of NL25 and three tables of NL10. Don't change anything in your game at first. Observe opponents, write notes and slowly learn new level dynamics.

      Hey Avatars91,

      You have less than 50k hands total, not enough to tell your winrate at any limit actually.

      My advice is to gather you strength, work on your game and be a lot better when you take your next NL25 shot and have a good BR for it so you gather some hands at the level. If you don't gather hands it's hard to tell what went wrong and what you should adjust in your game.

      As you've probably noticed, there are many players that before and after trying a new limit post some stats so they get a small piece of advice, why not do the same?

      Thanks for the advice. Will work on my game then.
