Posted by Jibberish: 30bb is easy in micro stakes, everyone pays off the nut hand lol easy to stack someone for 100 BB in 5-6 orbits of 6max plo
Show me anyones 30BB/100 stats then over a decent sample (not anything less than 50K hands minimum),good luck finding one You are looking at it too simple,you cant just say/think "omg I if I stack someone once per 100 hands I have 100BB/100",its not as simple as that that you always win,you have to include the times you run bad as well,and thats why its important to have a good enough sample to determine results
i will make you a 50k+ sample if u wish, im buying PT3 in the next day or 2 anyways

Easy question. You move up when you can consistently beat the level you're playing at, and have the proper BR for the next level. Now it's okay to take shots if you have LESS than a proper br (Say you've got >60BI for the next level) but only take SHOTS, don't start playing that level exclusively until your rolled for it properly. The quickest way to go broke in poker, is by playing way outside your bankroll. That, and sucking at poker

Thank you everyone for your help. in micros seems to be donks and bad players. (MTTs) seems since i came back to online poker its easier to cash in every tourny i play making final tables 3-4 times a day, i was considering just jumping up a level regardless of my BR but thought id get advice here 1st, seems like the answer to my question is bankroll management, i have consistently built a bankroll playing micro mtts and playing some ring games as side games, as i lost money at FTP when they were shut down i decided i wouldnt deposit too much and id build up slowly, my account was banned for 2weeks due to verification reasons so havnt really played up untill sunday since then my bankroll has gone up 4x my deposit, should it really be that easy?

You have feel secure enough to give that step. If you're asking this around here, i guess you must already feel confident enough to take that step. So you believe your way of playing is good enough to battle with the guys on the tables with bigger values. The truth is many of them know more than you, almost as much as those who know less. You'll find a bit of all. What about your acount? Have you given it a big boost that allows you to play only with those profits at the next level? If so, go on with it, don't think twice, after all, if you loose, it will be just less profits that you're cashing, not real money jumping out from your pockets!
