- How much of a swing can you allow in your bankroll (downhill swing) before you move back down a level?
- What should I be adding to my game as I go up in the levels
- Any advice in bankroll management would be nice, the only thing I really know is the 20 buyin rule, but even that seems a little low to me for some reason
In my experience, 25nl is significantly harder than 10nl. More decent players and less stupid fishes. you have to start categorizing villains so that you adapt your play to their different styles. Using a HUD becomes a must. Don't give action to the nits, and learn what kind of hand strength each category of villains is willing to play for stacks with.
Do wait until you have at least $500 before moving up. and mostly fix a limit where you'll move back down to 10nl if you start loosing. Like drop down to 10nl if you get to $400. But as you move up in levels, do increase the number of buy-ins for your BRM. Like 25 buy-ins for 50nl and 30 buy-ins for 100nl.
if you feel like you crush 10nl right now, learn to play a few more tables. 4-tabling is pretty low. Most multi-tablers here play a lot more than that.
