      So, after 2 month of grinding the NL5 BSS SH starting from 18$ capital I finally got my bankroll up to 300$+ and I think I'm ready for the action on NL10! I already tried the field and I seem to be doing fine there, still got some sense of fear :-) Thought it would be nice to share my success with pokerstrategy members(yes it's not 10k bankroll in 1 month like posts but it's a great success for me!). The october was another good month for me, here is my graph for the october!

      nice.

      that looks like an absolutely insane upswing. 33BB/100?

      don't be surprised if that changes. or is 33BB/100 sustainable on NL5?

      Well I had 42BB.100 hands in september, it's ok I think on NL5, you understand there are not many regulars there and all rest are just willing to give you away their cents.

      I was just about to try BSS SH, do you have any particular tips or charts, or tools?

      Congratulations!!! Happy to hear about such a success when I'm thinking of doing the exact same thing. :P

      Thank you everyone. :) I'm playing on PartyPoker, 4 tables, there are no tables for 6 people at NL5 and NL10 that's why I play while there are 6 or less active players at the table. Elephant or PokerTracker is must have utility when you play 4 tables. Although my VPIP is a bit high (35%) I would recommend you to play like 25% of all hands on NL5, those extra 10% were not profitable for me, I was just experiencing, preparing for higher limits. The most important thing to remember is that most profit comes here from valuebetting and not stealing the blinds/conbetting because most of the people have very high VPIP there, don't even try to 2barrel them :-) I wish you good luck!

      Hehe congrats on the gold status. I got gold from playing NL50 SSS for 3 weeks two hours a day, 6 tabling. But it went nowhere so I went back to NL20 BSS and now my strategy points are down to 400!

      6 tables, played 20 hours in 15 days so far, enough to keep my points raising.
