Hello guys! First of all sorry for bad english. 3 months ago i started my bankroll challange from 30 $. i crushed nl 2 with 9 bb / 100 over 40k hands, so i started to play at nl5. I played 7000 hands, i know this is little size to decide my real winrate, but im crushing it so hard. Is this 7000 hands a good sample to decide my nl5 carrer ? Thank you for answer!

There is a photo of my NL5 winrate :
(My BB /100 is 23,71)

Simple way of knowing, try it and if u crush it as well, you're ready, if you lose, you're not ready :))

I recommend that you play about 20,000 hands in NL5 if your BB/100 is over 15 is a good time to climb.

play at least 30.000 hands.I was playing 7000 hands on 6max 10nl and I was crushing it. 12BB/100. And guess what..., in another 2000 hands I have lost almost everything...

Play 100k hands and you will know for sure.

Variance is still very large over 7k hands, and most likely this was a sunshine run. If variance is 100, which is typical for 6-max, there is 30% chance of running 12 BB/100 below or above average, and there is 5% chance of running 24 BB/100 below or above average. So there is actually around 2,5% risk, you are not even a winning player at 5NL.

That being said there is not a huge gap in the average skill level from 5NL to 10NL, so if the bankroll is large enough, maybe its fine to start taking some shots at 10NL already. GG Poker has no limit below 10NL now, and there is something to be said for not spending your time on real money cash games below 10NL. There are still plenty of recs at 10NL, since for many 10$ is a nice amount of money to gamble with at a time.

After 40 000 hands your real winrate teoreticaly can be beatwean -1.00 BB/100 and 19.00 BB/100. If you have bankroll aand confidence just move up.

5 years ago I had ~ 13 BB/100 at NL2 (300 K hands) and 3 BB/100 at NL5 (50 K hands). poker stars Zoom.

I agree with most of the previous posters on 7,000 hands it being enough for a good sample, but I also thinks it’s important for personal growth to play in games that challenge you. If you have a really good winrate over a few thousand hands I don’t think it would be the worst thing to try a few secessions at 10NL to see where you fit in so long as you maintain proper BRM while doing so. If you can beat 10NL at a lower winrate I still think it will help you improve your game more by playing against better opponents

If your bankroll can support it, jump up and try it out. It's that simple.

if you are winning in nl 5, continue playing at that level at least 20 thousand hands to see your performance, and in the process you increase your bankroll, study hard so that you go to the other level because you will see more competition, do not start at the beginning if you are losing, so they are all at the beginning of a new level until you adapt and give your best game, lucky brother.

50-100k hands will be enough to estimate winrate.
7к is too unrepresentative:)
