Ok so you guys know I am not anywhere near 200 or 400nl but I do watch alot of DC vids and like to watch mid stakes 400/600nl often and I also watch it just for fun on stars (yes I am that sad)
I really think Nolans moving on up series is the nutz on DC so for my input I will give you a summary of his powerpoint slides so that you can get abit of info off somebody who has beat it and higher.
The Middle Stake
He firstly says the is first major stepping stone as its the jump where the casual cash players drop out and its a stake where professionals start playing.
Here are the bullet points off his slides.
- Bluffing becomes more effective (some players play with scared money)
- Button on blind aggression maximised
- Regs start stacking off lighter, especially in late position raise battles
- Begin to run into regs dropping down for various reasons, from as high as 10/20. So make sure your aware of these higher stakes pros
He then goes on to play some 400nl, Just to highlight some good regs for you if you didnt know. On stars btw dont know if they would table select from both FTP + stars. However just some information you may want idk.
xxXWobbly_auXxx - Solid reg, plays all the time, very aggro, 5/10 reg aparrently.
xxXgterodactyl6xxX - I think thats what it says the resolution is poor, but hes again a 5/10 reg, solid not as aggro but picks spots very well. He says maybe one of the best players at 5/10.
xxXgl79Xxx - Plays whatever from 2/4 to 5/10 depends what tables are open. Bit of a nit.
xxXyaomingmingxxX - same as gl79 an ok reg plays through to 5/10
He stats alot of players are comfy with 2/4 and play alot higher in general. However there are some regs who play 1/2 + 2/4 only.
just some stuff for you belgo I can watch some more 400nl vids for you and summarise them if you want maybe some on FTP to get some regs there but just a little insight from a high stakes pro.
Hope it helps
