      Okay, i started 2 days ago, with this 50$ start money.

      now i have 232$

      i play 0.05/0.10 limits only.

      95% of my sessions have been profitable. maybe i have just been lucky, or maybe i just have played good : )

      but when should i start 0.10/0.25?
      would you say when i got 250$ on my br, then i can start that limit?

      0.10/0.25 ? so i think you play nl sss ?

      according to this article you can move up when your bankroll is 150$ or bigger :)

      i played sss for a short time, but i didnt find it as profitable.

      better to win allin with 10$ than with 2$

      same money, same cards. or am i wrong?

      Im not an No-limit player but the point of the short stack strategy is to go all-in pre-flop right? And with your short stack people will call u more often.

      if you play NL Big Stack you should move to NL$25 when you have $400 bankroll

      you are wrong because you don´t notice how lucky you were... with your 50$ startmoney from the quiz you only have 5 stacks for the BSS at nl10, which is nothing.
      the SSS is best for beginners because you can avoid many difficult post flop decissions.
      and btw: the BSS bankrollmanagement article (which is now only availibe for silver+ because too many beginners got broke with the BSS ^^) says that you should move to nl10 when you have 200$... so... :)

      thats right but do you win every all in ? i don´t and i think nobody does ;)

      I started playing $25 pretty early though. SH is way more cool. But i do think if you start playing $25 you shouldn't make a full buyin with only $232 br. What i did is buyin for $15 and played the very strong hands only. So far $25 has been very profitable for me.

      I would wait at least 10k hands before moving up, unless you played before already and have these many hands behind you already.

      I think that 500$ is the minimum for nl25, to play without pressure...

      if u are learning, theres no hurry for level up that fast, i would play like 20k hand atleast in nl10, if u feel confident and have 20+ buy-in , i'll should move up.

      personaly i like to have a good backup, so i play with 30+ buy-in
      play safe :P

      well. thats my opinion
