I've been playing poker for some months now in microstakes cash games. When I'm playing there I've been doing well and most days I end with profit,I would say about 0,8$ per hour on average (2NL & 2 tables).
However I am getting bored easily not in the game but in the small profit per hour which I imagine is good as it is equal to 40bb/hour.
So after a few days of positive sessions but a small amount of profit since I am playing in 2NL I get frustrated and either go to very high stakes where my bankroll can't support 2 bad hands in a row either I try sit&go hero where I most likely lose my money.
My question is, how many buy ins do I need to move up the stakes assuming I keep an average 30-40bb/hour wins in 2NL.
Any other insights you have about a player trying to move up the stakes would be also appreciated.
PS1. My goal is at some point to be making 3$/hour, in which stakes is that possible as a decent player?
PS2. If I add more than 2 tables I feel I can't play as well as I don't pay the same attention in the hands. Moreover, I enjoy the game and with more tables I feel it is more automatic.
With 40 limit buyins, I try to play no more than 2 tables, but I play zoom. When I understand the trend of the game on the limit I try to play more tables. When losing 5-7 buy-ins, I return to the limit below. I prefer a more automatic game. If I get bored, I play turbo tournaments. How many hands do you play per hour?
I apologize, it was my first post I didn't make some things clear. I play 2NL with ante. It is a different kind of game but I have noticed it attracts many fishes who play 80% of the hands and with a solid play I have a decent win ratio. I play around 120 hands per hour. I have read about the 40buy ins amount but my main concern is that in 5NL ante remains the same and I am afraid it will end up being a much different game .
To earn $ 3 per hour you need a bankroll of at least $ 120. It is very difficult to start playing with several buy-ins. I started with freerolls and played NL2 (without ante) for 8k hands per day. For the month earned $ 200 and started playing NL5. How much can you earn per hour on microlimits very individually. Good luck at the tables and in life.
If you are winning at those tables maybe take a little attempt at the next level up. but if you get turned over go back to where you started, don't try and keep going higher. Just simply keep playing each level until your bankroll says otherwise
I'm agree that small proffit are boring and the time you spend could give you more income. In small buy ins torunamnets are to many fishs who calls you with s#$*t hand to your monster hand (and they win) So i do practice/learning and go to tournaments ~0,5/1$ or bigger. Goog luck to you !
I prefer the most MTT tournaments, as the bay is small and the prizes are good. At cash tables, you prefer to sit on 4-5 tables and play in a more enhanced mode, and then your bankroll will increase.
Good luck at the tables.
