      I'm usually a SSS player, but today I decided to try something different and entered the Daily Dollar Rebuy tournament on Full Tilt. I ended up finishing in 5th place for $500. Not bad for my first MTT.
      So, I was wondering what I should do with my winnings. I plan on sticking with SSS. I had just recently reached $150, so I was able to move up from nl10 to nl25. Now with this tournament cash, I have a large enough bankroll to play nl100. Should I jump right to nl100, or just cash out the $500 and stick to nl25, as I wouldn't of gained enough experience and skill to play at that limit yet?

      I'd change to NL10 BSS and when I feel comfortable with the strategy move up to NL 25 BSS :)

      But if you still want to continue at SSS, I wouldn't recommend at all going to NL100, you'd be just a fish there if you play with basic strategy. You could keep the money and play NL25 as if you had only $150 but if you can't resist the temptation you should definitely cash out!

      don't jump into nl100 if you want to keep your winnings.
      if you like sss stick to nl25, at least you won't worry about moving down to nl10 which is a threat if you only have 150

      Cashout some moneys and buy yourself something and don't disrupt you learning curve. And don't forget to brag about it with anyone that asks :s_biggrin:

      start with NL10 FR/SH. you have enough bankroll to go through the whole learning process in real poker not SSS where almost everything is about preflop push equities

      I've never seen a NL $100 game that is harder than a NL $25. My SSS stats at NL $100 are much much better than the utter pain that was NL $25.

      I highly recommend NL $100 if you are going to stay with SSS.
