Because they do not have the same level of difficulty.

1/2 limit is the 2nd smallest level on Party but 1/2 no limit is the 4rd smallest level. A lot of B&M poker rooms have 3/6 as the smallest limit game but 1/2 as the smallest no limit game.

In addition, you need a larger bankroll for NL. The standard for limit is 300BBs but for NL it is 2500BBs (25 buyins).




Just to clear the confusion ; it's 300 big bets for limit and 2500 big blinds for NL (since there are no big bets in NL)

There have been lots of discussions about this lately in Limit forums. If you are playing for a living it is 1000 Big Bets now. Many many really good winning players have had down swings of 500+.

500 should be the lowest.

I'm playing NL100 with about 65 buyins atm,
about to move up to play NL200 with somewhat 30buyins.
And I feel underrolled. General concensus around me is that 30 buyins would be the very minimum BR for NL play.
Are we swedes possies or what? =)

And here around I see that you seem to feel 20 is good and
10 might be okay to.

i can't see how 10 buyins is anywhere near good...it restricts play way too much to the point where it is prolly badly hampering ur game...

I've resolved not to move up untill I've played 10k hands and have beaten it for more than 10PTBB/100.

So far I've played 2500 hands and am at 25PTBB/100 hands.




I think you have an unrealistic expectation of long term success here. While its true that some players have 100K runs with 10 BB/100 hands, I suspect most winners over that number of hands will be 1BB-5BB/100 hands, with the 5BB/100 being really strong players.

I think your streak is awesome, but don't expect >10BB/100 as a standard before moving up.

I think bankroll is more important. If you have adequate bankroll for 25NL, then play there until you win enough to have an adequate bankroll fo 50NL, and so on. Drop down if the bankroll takes hits. Move up when the bankroll can sustain a shot at the next level. Some levels will go by quickly. And some will go by not so quick.

While this thread was good 2 years ago, I'm pretty sure it sucks in todays games.

running at 5ptbb/100 is pretty solid, anything over that i would consider to be crushing the game.

if you can play @ party 10 may be doable, but on the other major sites it seems pretty difficult to pull off nowadays.

it also seems that people are more concerned with their hrly rate as opposed to their win rate. if a bunch of 2p2ers only played 1 table at a time i'm sure they would crush their game but we're more interested in 4-12 tabling and making $100+/hr at 100nl and higher.
