      Hi everyone.

      I started playing SSS NL10 @ FullTilt last week. I've studied the Bronze level study materials but I have not yet got Silver status. Soon I will have enough bankroll to move up to NL25. Will Bronze level SSS still work in NL25? Should I wait till I've studied the silver articles before moving up?
      Any advice would be appreciated but Fulltilt specific would be great.

      Thanks

      Hello jonnyquest,

      I do not know much about Full Tilt but i have played NL25 SSS on stars. The players are slightly better but basic SSS should do the job. But its never bad to add improvements to your game that can increase your winrate so maybe it could be good to wait. Or you can take a shot and have a 5 Buy in stop loss limit. If you lose 5 buy ins on NL25 then move back to NL10 and grind it out from there ;)

      Good luck and best regards,

      -Jack

      Hi Jack

      Thank you very much for your insight. I'm glad to hear that the players are only slightly better at NL25 compared to NL10. I've decided that it would be prudent to wait until I have read the silver articles. I feel like I would also benefit from some more experience at NL10 as I've only played 4k hands. Hopefully I'll make the move up in the next couple of weeks.

      Cheers

      I was actually wondering about this. I've only played a couple times during "peak hours" when there's lots of Americans, but I noticed I'm getting too much action. This Friday night I had an amazing rush of cards and when I would shove I'd get 3+ callers. I had AA cracked by 64o, KK beaten by QTo, and JJ to J6s. Will there be more controlled play at NL25? The swings I'm having during weekend play is really frustating.

      Cheers
