      Hi all,

      I would appreciate your honest opinion and suggestions.

      I am wondering if I’m ready to move up from 5NL to 10NL.


      December 2014: 26K hands on 10NL zoom poker on PS with 1BB/100 winrate
      November 2014: 13k hands on 5NL zoom poker on PS with 12BB/100 winrate
      August 2014: 14K hands on 5NL rush poker on FT with 5.6BB/100 winrate
      Since last month I decided to make a run and try to build a bankroll.

      I am currently playing on William Hill (Ipoker), unfortunately I had to switch networks and I am not able to play on pokerstars in my current country of residence. So I will stay on William hill and I-poker.

      Since April I’m playing 5NL speed poker with 7BB/100 winrate over 22K hands (this is without rackeback)- inclusive of Rackeback winrate = 11BB/100

      Current Bankroll on William Hill= 350 Euro

      Now my questions:

      1. In your opinion am I even ready to move to 10NL?
      2. If so as there is no 10NL speed poker running on ipoker, ever.. (only 5NL and 20NL + 100NL) Does it make sense to move from 5NL speed to 10NL regular tables?
      or should I try to continue building a roll at 5NL and switch to 20NL once I have a sufficient bankroll? (which would be how much?)
      3. Has anyone faced the same obstacle at I-poker when playing speed?

      Any thoughts and input is much appreciated.

      Move up when you have the bankroll. Especially don't look at your winrates over such small samples imo. 26k hands on 10nl is nothing and your 1bb/100 is most likely not representative.
