      I deposited 50$ and started playing NL2$ on lucky ace about 3 months ago. When I got to 100$ I moved to the NL6$ tables and been playing there since. I got up to about 150$, cashed out everything along with my surplus from CD poker (had gotten 50$ from pokerroomschool and made it into 100$) and then deposited 200$ to Pacific last week with the 100$ instant bonus from pokerstrategy. I'm up to 350$ now and it seems I am usually winning money every session I play at NL6$ and was wondering if it was time to move to NL10 soon. I have a few questions regarding that.

      Is it wise to move up now according to BRM?

      Can I expect as many calling stations and maniacs at NL10?

      How should I adjust my play to NL10?:

      You need at least 20BI for NL10 BSS. You've got more than 200$, so I would just start there.

      play less hands and raise more of them - 13/9 or 15/10 is better then 22/6
      raise more on BU and CO as a steal
      Fold the blinds more foten towards steals

      Play more hands, you don't have a sample size. 350 is enough to move up, yes.
      But read our articles, watch the vids and join coachings. There is a lot to improve.
