      PartyGaming - $0.25 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 78.92 BB
      SB: 406.44 BB
      Hero (BB): 100 BB
      UTG: 100.48 BB
      MP: 362.12 BB
      CO: 34.88 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has J:heart: K:heart:

      UTG raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, fold, SB calls 2.6 BB, Hero calls 2 BB

      Flop: (9 BB, 3 players) 8:heart: K:spade: J:spade:
      SB checks, Hero checks, UTG bets 5 BB, SB calls 5 BB, Hero raises to 18 BB, fold, SB calls 13 BB

      Turn: (50 BB, 2 players) 9:club:
      SB checks, Hero bets 35.64 BB, SB calls 35.64 BB

      River: (121.28 BB, 2 players) 3:diamond:
      SB checks, Hero bets 43.36 BB and is all-in, fold

      Hero wins 115.24 BB

      SB 45 hands, VPIP 33, PFR 22, FCB 20.
      UTG 56 hands VPIP 25, PFR 20, CB 100.

      Is my raise ok in multiway? I think UTG can try often to steal a pot with his bet size, or is on draw, and SB would raise with set? Is raise size ok?
      And turn? TQ completes, should I worry about that? If flush arrives, I would have to fold to any bet on river, right?

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Glad to see you've made the jump to 25nl. How are you finding it so far?

      Preflop: looks fine, however, since we have an opener from UTG I wouldn't mind a 3-bet bluff here.

      Postflop: I wouldn't worry that much about the turn but if a flush completes we have to check back and if he donks we would have to fold.

      I was before playing NL25, but I couldnt win at all even in single day, and I had to come back to NL10.
      Since I started posting my hands in this forum, every day around 10 hands, and paying attention to play as you explain, in last 15 days every day I was in plus between 5-10 stacks, only one day in minus 2 stacks (very unlucky day).
      Yesterday I tried to play NL25, and very easily in plus 5 stacks, today I just started, one stack in plus.
      It seems that posting hands in forum helped me a lot, before I was just reading other hands.

      P.S. how much bankroll should we have to play NL25, what is your recommendation?
      In articles they say 25 stacks for a level, so for NL25 625$. I think it is too little, because playing 3 tables in fast forward poker you can lose very fast. So now I waited to have 50 stacks to start playing.

      Hey mlatasrb,

      I only started as a hand judge about 1 month ago so I didn't catch your older days at 25nl.

      I'm really happy that I was able to help you move up back to 25nl.

      For 6 max I'd say you should have at least 40-50 stacks. However it only depends on your strategy.

      For example you can play with 25 BIs as long as you drop back down when you have 15 BI left (so you have 37.5 BI for 10 NL). If you want to make sure your stay at the higher limit is longer (before you have to drop down or before variance affects your BR too much) then you can play it safer and move up at 40-60 BIs.
