re: Poker & 25NL vs 50NL Stars
Ok ill give this a shot, its been a while since i made that particular move up but here goes. The $25 tables tend to be populated by a higher number of calling stations, and lots of passive play. Value bet more and bluff less.
$50 NL tables youll get the same basic level of play if you select the tables correctly. Youll also find more regular players, the table im currently sitting on has 3 regulars playing, and most of these players are winning players. Occasional regs are total donks, and you need to keep track of the tables that their on, hence using PT becomes essential once your playing any decent amount of $50 NL.
The tables become more aggressive as well, your implied odds
go up, and you need to play your strong hands fast more, youll occasionally find yourself put in spots, and you should be prepared to bluff into big pots against the correct opposition more.
