Default Is it time to move up?

I play only 2/4 limit at PP. I 8 table and consistantly win 1.5BB/100 per table. I am very confident about my skills at this limit and have a fish list with 1000 names or so.

My circumstances have changed a bit as I am switching careers. I work very part time and am finishing my Master's degree. Long story short, I need consistant income from poker, although my wife makes good $ and I have several months of expenses saved in my emergncy funds. My gut tells me to stay put, but I do tend to be a bit conservative about such things. Any thoughts out there?

Why don't you toss a 3/6 table in when you play 2/4 and add tables if your doing good?

Over how many hands are you winning for 1.5 BB/100?

Ya, I'd also like to know. I mean, I'm running at 149.5 BB/100 hands at 2/4 but then again, I've only played 12 hands

Default more info

Over 100k hands since moving to Party in October. Before that I played 4 tables on Party skins and did more like 1.8BB/100 on 4 tables. I dont remember those numbers exactly but I would guesstimate I did that for 500k hands or so.


Thanks for the help

Have you played any 6max? YOu might want to work on your 6max skills before jumping upto 3/6. You'll get a much better feel for blind stealing, blind defense, and heads-up poker.

I personally dont think you should move up from 2-4, until you can average 2BB/100 over a 100,000 hand sample. I am a very conservative person though. If you can do this over your next 100,000 hand run, then I think your ready for a higher ground.

you sound like a pretty solid player. i think you should try it especially since its not even a full 2 times the limit you're playing now. if you were moving from 5/10 to 10/20 i'd say to be much more conservative but you sound pretty safe. plus the difference between 2/4 and 3/6 in my opinion is very small.
