Hi guys!

Im fixed limit player but Im thinking to give a shot on NL ^^
Well Ive got a question about an article of Pokerstrategy

http://www.pokerstrategy.com/strategy/bss/1590/1

I Quote the part i dont understand very well...

Is the profit bigger for fixed limit or no limit Hold'em? For the same financial risk, a strong player will make about as much at either variant, on the average.
To compare fixed limit and no limit, multiply the big blind of a no limit game by 3 and you will have the profit equivalent fixed limit game big blind.

3BB of NL = 1BB of FL??

I dont understand this..., what is mean? does it mean that if i have a winrate of 3BB/100 in NL is equivalent to my winrate of 1BB/100 en fixed limit????

Thanks !!!

Actually not. NL 0.05/0.10 with 0.10 Big Blind equivalent to 0.25/0.50 FL with 0.25 Big blind, because 0.10x3=0.30 - nearest limit to that is 0.25/0.50.
