OK so I've been killing UBs 10nl lately (6 tabling) and am thinking about moving to 25nl. BUT, I have always been more into tourneys so I'm not sure if I have enough cash experience yet. This screen shot is from earlier today, I'm not going to lie I was running very hot today, but I have been able to average winning 2+ buy-ins a day when I play at 10nl. There are still many days where I only play tourneys though, since I do still enjoy them more. I just haven't had any good cashes in a while so I decided to give ring games a shot. I have only been playing cash games for a short while though, and only six tabling for less than a month. I have played 25nl a number of times before (also before I started using proper BRM) and don't feel that it is out of my league, I am just wondering when the right time to move up is?
I am currently rolled for it, but not by much, so my question is do I keep grinding it out at 10nl, which I know i can beat, or do I just sack up and go for it? I'm slightly leaning toward sticking to 10nl till I reach say $750, but kinda feel like a wimp because of this and don't want that to affect my game. Am I just making too big a deal out of this? I just really want to do things right this time and hope to never have to deposit to Ultimatebet again, well maybe for the occasional bonus, but not to supplement by bankroll.
I think I am cunfuzzed...:confused:

When I moved up from 10NL to 25NL, I started with only 2 of my multi-tables at 25NL and the rest 10NL. Then after a few days, I went all 25NL. You could go half & half or something for a little while to get used to it and slowly ease into all 25NL tables. It worked for me.

Thanks Stick, I didn't really think of this for some reason. One question though, did the bet sizes ever confuse you on the different tables? I mean like confusing a 10nl table with a 25nl table? I suppose it should be fairly clear with the stack sizes just curious. Sometimes things get hectic when a few tables pop up at once.

Yes with tears of joy!:D

No in all actuality I wear glasses and have some awesome eye drops that I use while staring at these damn screens.

But why would they go blurry?

Nope. I kept one stakes level on the bottom row and the other on the top row. Never had confusion. Maybe try 4 tables with 2 of each stakes until you get used to the difference, though. Then go back to 6 tables. Good luck.
