      After building my bankroll up to about $140 playing SSS Nl10, I switched to NL25 and got absolutely hammered - didnt matter that I stuck exactly to the strategy, I steadily lost at a rate of 9 - 10 bb/hh. Now I have switched back to NL10 and I find it extremely easy to beat - once again showing profit in almost every session. I play 6 tables NL10 but only 4 NL25. Maybe my play isnt the best at NL25, but its hard to beleive there is that much diference between the two levels.

      Hmm rereading the articles usually helps, you shouldnt have much problem beating the nl25, try reading some more advanced articles like freeplay draws, playing against other SSS, pot odds and such.

      I have basically the same problem with nl100, I'm beating nl50 easily, but on nl100 i'm a big loser.

      Hey guys,

      hunt is right. Just work on your game and you will beat Nl25. Btw: What your recognized now is very typical. When you shotted a higher limit and come back to your recent limit you feel you easily beat it. And it's actually true in most cases. You just feel way more confident and comfortable. Psychological reasons. ;)

      Best regards,
