NL16

Beating NL10 and thinking of moving up soon, but don't really know if I should play NL16 or grind bankroll @NL10 for NL25 and skip NL16 altogether.


What is it like, because it isn't talked much?

Re: NL16

Why would you skip it?

Re: NL16

Looked at 1 table and it has 30%+ vpip and four of the players don't have auto top on

Doesn't look reg infested to me.

Even if it is reg infested it doesn't mean they are good regs.

Re: NL16

Certainly possible to find fish from there. Fish don't care what game, what stake or what format.
Bet sizing might be annoying thing. You open to 48c cents, now how much is 3.5x that, or 4x

Re: NL16

It's not reg infested, even during off peak, but the regs seem fairly decent.

As Dwimmer says, there are plenty of players who don't have auto top-up on, and are just generally terrible.

I'd play it before going to 25NL.

Re: NL16

16 is pretty soft. Some regs get scared because the bet sizing is weird.

It's easier than 25nl that's why people play 16nl and not 25nl. I can't imagine fish decide that they are going to skip it either.

Re: NL16

I wouldn't play 16nl purely because the bet sizing must be so tilting.

Re: NL16

Played a bit earlier this month and didn't find it significantly different to 10NL. There's regs with 50-point gaps between flop and turn cbet %, other players who'll limp 63o utg and call a subsequent raise and 3bet.

Raise sizes do take some getting used to though. I found hotkeys helped a little.

You can set it so you can just click 3x 4x etc so I don't see how the sizing is an issue.

Re: NL16

In some ways 16 is an easier number than 10 to bet size, for example it quarters to a whole number unlike 10.
