That's the problem with logic, you cannot lie about it.

How many people have gone broke here or had to move down from 2/5?

It depends on the game but sure they do. I've seen this play a lot more at 5/T than I have at lower stakes, mostly because they are using other players' aggression against them.

Then again, it all depends on the player too. I've seen a guy limp QQ on the button after 2 limpers in as 6-handed game at 5/T.

You might get lucky. It's a no win scenario though. If you win the session that will just keep you coming back for more, and if you build a winning streak you will have tasted enough of the big money that you will never want to go back to 1/2. I've seen multiple players go on a hot streak at 5/T+, then play there for months breaking even or losing money. When they finally come to the realization that they can't beat 5/T+ it's very difficult to move back down to 2/5. I can't even imagine trying to go back to grinding 1/2 after playing 5/T. You'd probably just quit poker.

I have to both. Though I have a lolcareer, so "broke" just meant I expelled my money that I set aside for poker.

Why?

The more interesting question would be to ask why I have responded to this.

I've had to move down from 2/5. Not because I went broke though. I was still rolled for it when I moved down. It was because of game conditions mostly. 2/5 in my town is one of the worst in the country, and the room had recently changed its 1/2 game to 1/3.

Confirmed difficult. I had a hard enough time moving from 2/5 to 1/3, let alone 5/10 to 1/2. The key for me was goal setting. Without a goal in mind I was just bored and spewy.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Ive never had the moving down problem. I've done it both live and online. I'm too competitive to be affected by the lower stakes.

I've gone busto on a few occasions. Twice online and thrice live although every time I went broke live was due to life inflicting a death blow to my poker roll and not inability to compete.

Never went broke but failed at 2/5 multiple shots. Hit my stop loss and went back to $1/$2 300 max to grind it back up and do it over again.

Some players have this strange view that if you go broke at 1/2 you are supposed to move up to 2/5.

What kind of bankroll would have kept you guys from going broke? I really feel that 15k is kinda the minimum BR needed
