I'm not obsessed with winning money right now, i just don't feel motivated to play NL2.
I think you got me wrong. Maybe i have expressed myself wrong, but what i wanted to say is that i want to keep learning, theory and discipline, but in order to do that i need to have motivation. I've read books and blogs, í've saw videos and i've been playing a lot but in my opinion NL2 isn't stimulant to the learning process. That's why i set the $200 goal, it's a means to an end. Earn the money to move up level and then go on with my learning process.
you might as well give up now if the bolded is your attitude. its the easiest place to make money , to learn how to crush fish, to hone your value betting skills but by the sound of it your EGO means that you think you are too good to play there.
you are asking about what strategy to use, whether to use auto rebuy, how much to huy in with etc ....these questions all point to you having relatively little experience and/or knowledge.
You say you want to learn bankroll managemnt , but you're yet to set your move up and move back down numbers for your anticipated poker journey.You say that you want to get 200$ so you can move up to 5nl .....but don't feel motivated to play 2nl .....How do you think you are going to get to 5nl then without playing 2nl if you aren't playing 5nl on your current bankroll.
The last line you put is so incredibly stupid. why postpone your learning until after you move up to 5nl. you should be learning all the time that you play, you should be observing your opponents , watching how they play their hands , how you can exploit the way that they play, if they give any tells
...i.e donk bet 1bb on the flop and fold to a raise. Learn how these incredibly bad players misplay their hands and you can use it to profit for the rest of your career. your money in general at whatever stake will come from the bad players. they are the ones you have to learn to crush because as you move up they will get less and less of them , and more there will be more good players fighting to get their share of the bad players money.
Why can't you learn how to set mine at 2nl, who you can steal off , how you can defend against steals, how to use your hud , how to make use of notes etc.
