First of all, congratulations for the great results.That is a very impressive graph. The key to being a winning player is to play people you can beat.You have had success at the micro stakes level, so you should continue to play there. A problem with playing MTTs, is they are very high variance. This can make it difficult to figure out if you will be successful playing higher stakes without improving your game. It is not unusual to have long periods of losses before a deep run gets you back into profitability at a level you can beat. Thus, I would not assume that you can't win at the $11 buy in level. If I was in your position, I would try the higher buy ins for 25% to 33% of my tournaments. When I felt confident that I was not over matched, and had some better success at the higher level.I would increase the number of higher buy ins.

Keep the good results coming

ty Doug thats good advice, it was kinda weird cos i d always had usually $200 to $1000 br then suddenly started making deeper runs, 1st and 2 x 2nds in Mtts for major BR boosts in the past 5 weeks, i have cashed out maybe 40% of this and about 8 times since last autumn, the money will help me with things in life, having the bigger br was all new to me so need to get used to it quick.. i think i ll take your advice stick to 3.30 to $11 buys in maybe 1 in 4 play $11 + Mtts. TY
