Default When does poker get hard?

Hi, this may sound like a stupid question, but i was just wondering in your experiences in moving up, at what limit does poker start to get quite challenging eg 200NL etc. I know it is challenging anyway, but at what limit do you really need to take ur game to the next level skill wise to beat that level? Thanks

Every level is hard (in a multitude of ways) until you become comfortable and play enough hands to beat it, this is a bad question.

NL 100, NL 400, NL 1000 are what I tell people are the "levels"

add: talking about 6 max, NL 1000 is my level now, so can't comment on higher up

I found switching from full ring to 6max was hard but got the hang of it after about 1k hands.

As a tournament donkey, the switch from tournaments to cash games was tough at first. I went from around 100-200 dollar tournaments to nl 400, and I started losing immediatly. I just never beleived anyone ever had a hand, and 3 bet bluffed people, and called down with like mid pair. It didn't take me all that long to start winning though, and now I can say I'm a *consistant* winner at that level. Moving up soon though, so I hope it doesn't get "hard."
