      Two options, imo:

      i) Move up and set a conservative drop down limit like 450BB.

      ii) Keep going and maybe take occassional shots at $2/$4 on juicy looking tables. As you get more confident you can keep adding tables until you transition.

      Nice work dude and good luck. :s_cool:

      I generally find that taking shots is always a good idea - find yourself a fishy table and then set your self a stop-loss limit on that table. If it goes well then you have more for that limit and you can start to feel a little more comfortable.

      I'm sorry, you had a horror session, you lost with your good hands, ended b/e, and THAT's a nightmare?

      Sheesh.

      And to add to my original reply:

      iii) practice table selection.

      Why make the game harder for yourself? Follow Yoghi, and interestingly, Roger Federer's advice, and play a winning game, not the most impressive game.

      The Nightmare was when I was stuck -$193. I got very pissed off, I was sweating like hell, but I knew I made all the correct moves so I continued playing ;)
      I didn't notice any skill level change on this 2/4; maybe I'm wrong, I don't know;

      I played today a short session and now on $2/4 I'm $110 up :)

      And about table selection maybe I'll do it on 3/6; I adapt really quickly to my opponents so far
