I've been playing NL ring games a lot more lately and have been thinking about some of the posts I've read here. Most of the sage advice I see recommends starting off small, managing the bank roll correctly, etc. Got me to thinking - is a recommended start level set by bank roll, experience or both? Seriously, is there an inherent benefit to playing at lower levels and thrashing it out for $5 at a time at .10/.25 for the experience, or should you just jump into 1/2 if you feel like you can swim in the deep end of the pool and have the bank roll to back it up (never more than 5-10% on the line, etc.)?
Again, I'm not trying to push anyone's buttons here. Just seems like most of the advice I've read is geared towards 21-25 year old college guys on tight budgets. Thoughts?
(FWIW - I've been at .1/.25, buying in at $10 and checking out at $20 after reading some threads here. I don't have a whole hell of a lot deposited at this point, but that's primarily due to my ability to get money INTO/OUT OF the damn sites)
