Moving from $.50/1 to $1/2

The play here isn’t too much different. After playing 10,000-15,000 hands of .5/1, you should be more than
bankrolled to play at the $1/2 limit.
players are a mixture of loose/tight players but they all play very passively and are the easiest
$1/2 tables to beat that I have found. If you feel uncomfortable moving up so quickly to $1/2,
then you should practice with your free $100 at Pacific (thats what it is there for).
You need to earn another 300 BB at the $1/2 level, which is still more than doable playing 10,000-15,000 hands,
but you may want to play as much as 20,000 hands to really get the feel of it. After the Deposit Bonus and the
300 BB at $1/2, you should have a bankroll close to $1200.

Take a second to reminisce a few months back when you deposited $100 and now you are up to $1200. You are a winning poker player!!! You should probably order (if you haven’t already done so)
