Default Moving Up: What\'s my next step?

As many of you know I play NL1000 on Party (4-tabling). It's been my regular game since early October. The following are my stats in that game:

Hands played: 87,177
ptbb/100: 4.77
mt ratio: 3.72
hourly rate: $325.17

I'm in a kinda weird spot right now because I'm considering moving up limits fairly soon. BUT I hate the 10/20 games on Party since I am a sh'd specialist and DESPISE full ring (BORING!). At the 2k tables:

6600 hands at 6.45ptbb/100...tiny sample.

Does anyone have any recommendations as to what my next step should be? I could try a new site where game selection sucks or I could just stick to the party 2k games when they are only shorthanded. But that blows when I build a stack and the game fills up.

How about the 10/25 6-max games on UB. How much tougher are they than the 5/10 and 10/20 games on party? Prima? Absolute?

All comments and recommendations are appreciated as well as thoughts on my NL1000 stats so far: enough hands? good enough WR?

Thanks,
-HEK

prima has 2 10-20s that run almost all the time. A lot of regulars. UB has 6max, stars has 6max, FT has 6max.

When did Stars add 6-max? Is the 10/20 6-max good?

Your 5/10 stats look fine to me. I'd take 4.75 PTBB/100 right now (stuck in a downswing).

87k over 2 month is like 3 hours/day playing 4 tables i think... not too bad.

I don't play anywhere near this high, so I can't comment on the quality of the game, but I do play at pokerroom. From what I've noticed on the rail, they usually have a short $10/$20 game going, but not always a full ring game.

As an fyi for anyone interested, they have been getting off a $25/$50 game (6-9 handed generally) recently and occasionaly short $50-$100 game (full table but, it never fills up).

Hope this helps.

That's like 72,000 hands or something.. and that's every single day. That's a lot of playing.
