I am used to playing low limit at this moment. Some day, I plan to play higher limits. My question is "Is there any big differences in terms of level of play between low limit and medium and high limit?"
if your stack can play more conditioned at higher levels !!! On the other hand, at low levels you play more calmly and when you have a certain amount of money you can go up in level according to your stack.
The low limits will always help you not to spend more than necessary, you realize in certain plays that if you had bet everything you would have been left with nothing believing that you had the best possible hand. This helps you develop your game better and later control the amounts you bet on certain plays. Regards.
In low limits the field is a little easier overall, although many great players about. In medium limits I find everyone pretty much has a pretty solid game. Only played high stakes once live but have watched lots of replays - play is pretty consistent and tough and all seem to change gears often - great poker!
I buy in for 13$ and start playing 5cent-10cent for 10$ American. Every time I double my stack I move up stakes. By the end I am playing 2$-5$ with the boys. As u move up, playing fields tighten up and bluffing becomes a big part of the game. But calling a bluff can be easier at this level cause itís all won money, ur not losing nothing but 13$. And taking a shot at some of these pots is well worth it.
If there is a difference, although I never played very high limits, in the low it is pure chance, almost no technique, tactics or strategy that if it begins to be seen more clearly in medium and high levels
Definitely there is big difference. As you go up the levels players become better and more aware how to play properly. While simple good basic strategy may be enough to crush low levels it will definitely not be enough at higher levels. Opposite is also true - very complex moves frequently will not work well at low levels as players there simply will not behave as you expect.
not only is there a huge difference in skill level, but you also have to think about the affects a higher buy-in game would have on you as a player and your decision making.
lets say you have a $100 bankroll and play $1 mtts.. Then you play a $20 mtt, how can you make the proper decisions and adjustments at a table when you have 20% of your bankroll at stake when you normally have 1% at stake? you probably can't and you're basically setting yourself up to fail.
