This is a discussion on nl5 - nl10 within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; Do I need to change the strategy of the game in the cash limit nl5 permissible limit on nl10. Or you can play as both
Do I need to change the strategy of the game in the cash limit nl5 permissible limit on nl10. Or you can play as both played. And how do you think should change the style of play in the transition to higher limits ?

I think that 5NL and 10NL play the same way. It's only once you get to 25NL that the players become much tougher, more aggressive and bluff more.

I wish I could articulate it better than Matthew Southall, however I think he's right on the $$$. The 5NL & 10 NL will almost basically play the same with just barely a smidgen of better players on the table being 1 or 2. It is also quite possible & probably more common that the level of play will be the same on 5NL & 10 NL.
On 25 NL is where U will see a significant jump in skill level & methods of play.

Poker is a situitional game and so you have to adjust all the time.
It is so dynamic that you must adopt table to table.
Even at low limits, there are tough tables there. And so we have to adjust.

I think that nl5-nl25 only ABC poker

Just play ABC and let their own mistakes show imo. People at micros are so unpredictable and goofy in how they play I think it's sort of a mistake to make any adjustment from ABC other than maybe tightening up pre vs really loose passive players.

I would agree that 5NL-10NL is basically the same strategy. I agree with above that at 25NL villains can be much more aggressive and you need stronger reads to go after bluffs. Lower levels (2-10NL) you won't find as much bluffing, so it's easier to play straight ABC poker and make a profit. Of course, you will find that certain tables are much more challenging than others, and the more players you know at the table (playing style-wise), the more likely you are to capitalize on the action. The more I've played the more I've discovered that table selection is a huge component of making a profit. Gl!

I believe that the style of the game should always be the same, it should not depend on the limits. If you want to be a plus player, you need to play carefully at any limits and, if possible, do not risk all the money. At any limits, there is a fish and there are sharks, the main thing is to understand who is who, and use this situation for their own purposes. I prefer to play cautiously on any limits and this brings a good result, and I advise you.
