When to move up from NL25?
      #6570513 - 07/17/06 09:59 AM

Hi all
This is based on Fimbulwinter's legendary post:

When do move up from NL25?

and is a compilation of articles/threads I've mainly collected or found using the search feature Pokey: 'How to use 2+2's search engine' that I used/am using to improve certain aspects of my game that I thought it might be of help to those like myself moving from NL25 to NL50.

Quote:




What approximate win rate (after a significant # of hands of course) do you think should one should have at NL25 before making the move to NL50?

Thanks a lot.



first off you should never view it as a quantum leap kinda thing. just take little shots when you feel comfortable, have the money and are good enough. here's a hand waving yardstick:

try 50NL when:

- you're confident in your preflop game
- you understand position
- you have a good idea of their hand by the river
- you have an ok feel when to continuation bet
- you have 500 or more

1. You're confident in your preflop game

I can't give you confidence, only a boatload hands will but here's some preflop threads to start you build your own preflop strategy:

Fimbulwinters' 6max hands - require goot postflop ability
UOPoker's 6max beginners guide
Pokey SH TAG - good for transitioning FR->6max TAGS
Preflop strategy for a LAG can be found here
For you Full ringers - Gelford Starting hands
Discussion why starting hand charts are bad for NL
Fims' 6max preflop quiz/discussion
Summary of the voluntary statistics survey -see what others are doing


2. You understand position

Epdaws 'Playing Out of Position' (OOP)
Pokey's article on using position preflop - also TAG FR starting hands


3. You have a good idea of their hand by the river

mercman572 PB Hand Ranges


4. You have an ok feel when to continuation bet

absoludicrous C-Betting 101: Creating a Positve Return
FreakDaddy Continuation Bet Article
When DON'T you c-bet?
Discussion on floating and counters


5. You have 500 or more

I believe he meant start taking shots at NL50 when you have 500 as the commonly accepted bankroll for your current limit is x20 buyins.

Here's AJ's take on " Bankroll and Moving Up "


Finished, took longer than i thought and that was after a pruning, hope this is of some use to some and not just repeating.
All the Pooh bah (PB) can now be found in the SSNL Master Sticky.

Many thanks to all the posters (many uncredited) who've contributed to this compilation
-without their posts and insight this compilation wouldn't exist.

Compiled in honour of Fim.

Thanks for the support guys ( and gals ).
I'm now playing NL50 so this is a shameless bump so that someone/people hopefully might do the moving from NL50 -> NL100.
