Let me give you my definition of Crushing.
When I'm crushing a game/level then that game/level becomes my personal ATM and bank account. I can sit down in a game and I can almost guarantee that i'm adding to my bankroll.
You are at $65 playing 2NL. If you are CRUSHING then you should be able to run that up to $200 in no time. Hell, if you are CRUSHING you should be able to run that up an extra hundred dollars in a week easy.
If you have the "fear" of losing that money "before" you get a chance to play 5NL then guess what, you aren't crushing anything, you are a rec fish on a heater.
Rule of thumb is you need 20 buy-ins to play at a limit. If you are playing ZOOM poker then I'd double that to 40 buy-ins. So you need $200 before you think of playing 5NL.
So Mr. "I'm Crushing 2NL" fine...
Keep crushing and grind your way to 5NL.
Ever hear of the term "grinding"??? Well, that is what you have to do. Grind your roll up to $200 and read some articles on BRM and also go to BBV http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/54...rags-variance/
and do a search for "Prop Bets" so you can get a sense of what CRUSHING is.
there are players that have done prop bets for starting with $100 and turning it into $10,000 in ONE MONTH. Or starting with $10 and turning it into $1,000 in one month playing nothing but 2NL.
Basically, I get the sense you don't quite understand what you are talking about or your actual ability. But that's okay. You are in the right place. If you want to become a winning player then you got to put some work in and that includes reading a bunch of 2+2 threads and using the search function.
Read up on BRM, Risk of Ruin, and look at the this forum as well http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/17...ls-challenges/
