      Hello everyone, I will start grinding the cash games and hopefully move up stakes as I progress. The format is Zoom Poker (Full Ring) and I have a bankroll of $60 at the moment (only 500 VPPs left to unlock the $50 VIP bonus). I am currently in the red on 5/10NL but haven't played much. I wanted to become a Gold Star by the end of this month, but haven't been able to put a lot of volume. I think it's still possible though! :pokerface:

      For that to happen, I would have to skip 2NL (risky move but I will take my chances). Would you recommend me 4-tabling 5NL or playing 2 tables of 10NL?? All kind of feedback is greatly appreciated :D


      Here is my graph for 2NL:



      25NL (Only took a few shots playing 1 table):
