hello to everyone who reads this post. i have been playing poker stars now for about 6-8 weeks my initial 100$ I lost within the first 3 weeks i dont think it was the way i played (me thinks) i do think you have to get used to the server pokerstars uses even though they are random cards. anyway put another100$ in. started playing the sng 9 seaters mainly omaha hi lo as well as tournaments. started playing in the mercury league won a few moved up to mars then venus highest i got 2 was 405.personally i think it is very difficult to get much higher as there are more swings in om hi/lo. got a few good results in the mtts 3 final tables 1 win 4 dollar hi lo.i have now moved to earth played 2 got 72 points and currently on 700$. with this in mind am i playing to high ie 15 dollar sngs and/or should i move up to a little higher mtts.

I think your playing right about where you should be, $700 roll has 46 $15 buy ins, if your a winning player that should be enough. If you drop below 40 buy in's ($600) I would move down to $10 SNG's. Your win rate in MTT's will be lower so If I were you I wouldn't play higher than $10 MTT's, which gives you 70 buy ins and a little more wiggle room in case you encounter a down swing.
