TY for the kind words, I guess I am a nit when it comes to moving up, but a couple of other things too.
I am beating .10/.20 for over 10BB/100 for quite a while now (in my terms, although I realise 6.3k hands is a small sample IRL), in fact was recently up as high as 14BB/100 before I had a few bad sessions in a row and got frustrated. So my thought WAS I have to beat .25/.50 at 4BB/100 to match that, and I figured the player pool would be much better when I'm finally above the lowest end of the 2-7TD spectrum, and that wouldn't be possible. After actually playing it, and seeing more than a few of the average/bad players I have played in .10/.20, I'm not so sure this is a valid concern.
Also, the .10/.20 games are always running, while .25/.50-.5/1 is rarely going, and I am not confident enough in my HU game to start games. I think from now on I will be looking for running games and at least checking them out to see how fishy they are.
Finally, psychologically, I have never moved up in poker before! I was a pretty average NLHE cash player, a terrible LHE player, and apart from in $3.30SnGs on Bodog, I've never been far enough above break-even that I've thought moving up was a good idea. But I guess I'll have to get used to the idea
Thanks again for the encouragement.
