OP, the way in which you described the 30-60 blind and betting structure in simpleton terms amazes me that you crush the 2-5-100 SL game. "Nearly" all fixed LHE games have the same structure of betting and blinds. 2-4 LHE has 1-2 blinds and the bet pre and post flop is a half max bet where as turn and river is a full bet. In cases where the limits are not divisible by 2 (like 15-30), the small blind is 10 and big is 15.
My advice to you is to not jump into the 30-60 directly without having basic LHE knowledge or experience. I grew up playing 6-12 to 15-30 and still would not jump into that maniacal game at the ameristar. It's the same players every week playing that game (mainly 50 - 75% asian) and they all know each other. I know how it runs and the way in which players get trapped between raisers. They do this intentionally with meager holdings. 30-60 is a MASSIVELY bigger game than 2-5-100 SL could ever be. You better have deep pockets and be prepared for huge variance. Expect being down a few thousand to up several thousand.
You go on a bad run and you will demolish your BR in no time.
We're trying to organize a regular 10-20 LHE game the lodge but we need more interest. That would be a better starting point for you. I guarantee there would be more middle aged white guys that don't have the shear aggression and collusion in their blood.
