Taking my bankroll forward
Hi all, yet another bankroll thread
Most of my poker playing has been live games at my local casino, but recently I've decided I want to play online a bit more. There's a few reasons for this but there's probably not much point going into them.
I've obviously played online before, but it was only for a bit of fun so it included things like playing stakes I can't afford, etc - the small amount of money I put in wasn't an issue to me. This was on party and I managed to bust it all, but as I say, I wasn't really bothered - for the small amount that was in there I couldn't be bothered cashing it out, and I wanted to move to poker stars
So, on Poker Stars I deposited $100 with a decision that I wanted to make something of it following proper BRM. This being said, I started out at $5 SNGs, which was possibly a bit too high, but at this point I wasn't bothered because of the small amount of money at stake.
After playing pretty infrequently I'm now up to $375, just from playing the $5 SNGs. I'm still on these as I want to be able to afford 40 buyins before I move up to the $10 SNGs.
My question at this point is how much longer should I continue playing SNGs? I'm interested in playing ring games, but until now there doesn't seem to be much point. When I hit the magic $400 number I have the option of continuing with the SNGs, or moving to nl$10 - but I'm not sure which is best. The $5 SNGs have been easy so far, with plenty of bad players, but I imagine as the stakes go up so does the quality of play.
My main concern with the SNGs is I don't think they're a good tool for improving my game. The play in them is rather basic, tight early, steal steal steal late. But on the other hand, I can't see nl$10 requiring anything but simple play either.
I do plan on making the transistion at some point, but for now which should I do?
a) move over to nl$10.
b) stick with SNGs until I get to $1000 then move to nl$25
Any thoughts and comments greatly appreciated
