Who is playing cash at what limit? And who is making any progress?

Over the last month I’ve been playing micro stakes, 2NL sometimes 5NL. When I started I had a balance of $17 and change. I’ve now built up a balance over $160. I can’t seem to break 170, I keep fluctuating between 162 and 167 lol just gotta keep grinding! Best of luck to you!

Sometimes I play the lowest stakes on unibet - €4 NL. I mainly play MTT and Hexapro.

For the past month I've been playing at micro stakes, 2NL, sometimes 5NL. When I started, I had a balance of $17 plus change. Now I've created a balance of over $160. I can't seem to beat 170, I keep fluctuating between 162 and 167 lol, just gotta keep training! Good luck to you!
Are players at the 5NL limit stronger than at 2NL or the same?

Not much different really, I’d say on average a slight bit more tighter but it’s pretty random. Key thing I find when at the tables is piecing out who’s a reg and who’s recreational. After that it’s just picking up on how they play.

Have you tried playing cash above the 5NL limit?

I will at some point, with my current bank roll I’m just playing limits where I have close to 50 buy ins. Not looking to get rich fast or live off poker, but more a gradual and comfortable progression. That may change in the future but that’s my mentality at the moment.

I did invest a little at first. Mostly in tools as PT and Flopzilla. And the most money I had recently was U$ 30 as BR that I kept from freerolls and sadly lost it all from playing in not supposed to play days. I advice you guys to have those days noted so you don't do what I did. Those days where you're just not right minded and insist on playing the most tilted you can. Well, you could call it tilt days also. But anyways, I only play micro and haven't made any significant amount of $$$ so I could withdraw it. Been playing for 2 years now and haven't been regular since I have a regular schedule job.

Only a decent winrate, not to mention the appropriate bankroll size, can serve as a sufficient basis for moving to tables with higher rates. If you play less than 4 BB per 100 hands of winrate, then you have nothing to do at the limit above.
The reason is simple: there is a huge probability that at tables with higher rates, at least, it is unlikely that it will be possible to keep the win rate at the same level. And it is not necessary to talk about its increase in even more unfavorable conditions.

I think I have played against you at the cash tables, probably 10NL or 20NL on 888 (my username is rtrpwr), its a while ago now though.

888 games went downhill since they cut the 9 handed games for the lowest stakes, they have brought them back but the games aren't as good and rake is too high. I mostly play on pokerstars 25NL and 16NL these days depending where I can find the best games. Will take a stab at 50NL before too long but not sure I'm quite ready (mentally and technically!)

When cash game then 2/5 cent no limit., although it seems cheap, you can win or lose a significant amount :)

my NL1$/2$ limit although I change it when, for example, I lose 5 all-ins in a row

It's possible. Good luck at the tables!
