Switching from from full ring to shorthanded

Who is qualified for the change and when is the right time?

The question when to change to shorthanded tables is varying in individual cases and cannot be answered generally as there is no keylimit indicating such a change. However, you should have played full ring games successfully over a long period of time and should have understood and realized the basic concepts of the game (see also silver-/gold content) before changing to shorthanded tables. Well, if you still feel like playing shorthanded now, you'll be ready for switching over.

I'm guessing not as you'll play too tight and have to pay the blinds too often
