Default Want to move up stakes, bad idea?

My roll is at $1500, and Ive been playing .5/1 for the last 20 days or so..Have made 11 buyins in about 3000 hands..playing 20/13/2

I played as high as 2/4NL a couple years and did well, but lost touch with poker for a while...Turns out the game grew and the players got a lot better, so I started over at .25/.50

I only play one-table..Though it may be less $/hour over the long run it does help my variance and my quality of play, which I feel is easier on my mind..

Is it a bad idea to move up?

moving up to 1/2 would give you a 7.5 buyin roll. waaaay too small. wait till 3k then take a shot.

As someone who ran through the stakes with very low buyins, yes it is a bad idea to move up. Your BR simply cannot handle the variance at 200nl, which is so much more aggro than 100nl.

Not to mention you are running hot at 100nl, you are not going to maintain that win rate in the long run.

All probably true.

Ok. $3000 optimal?

I'd say $4k at least. If you do $3k, you should be ready to drop down at $2.5k IMO.

Cool, and howbout multitabling? Is that something I should really think about or just play the way im comfortable?

I feel like I think out things a bit longer than most..Not necessarily a bad thing, I feel like i make better decisions because of it... Have also never really done well trying more than 1 table, but should I give it another try?

If you aren't comfortable with multi-tabling, and you want to try, go slowly. Play 2 tables first. Then 3, etc. And it would probably help to play a level lower than you normally do when you're first trying to adjust to a higher table number.

NO, your gonna feel sick in your stomach to lose 1/3 of your roll. so id suggest starting at 5-6k.

solution: start 2-tabling 100NL. you probably woulda just 1-tabled 200NL anyway, so stay down where you are and practice multi-tabling while getting the same amount of action. yeah?
