What is the best way to go from 15 usd and way higher for a casual player?

Should I do 6 player tables? Sit n go? Or maybe headsup tables?

What stakes should I go after?

Stakes, on a $15 bankroll, obviously the lowest possible :)
A mix of .01/.02 6-max ring games (with caution), 45-man .25 SNGs, and all the freerolls you can get usually works pretty well for building your bankroll - and your experience.

Bear in mind that at those stakes, even if you breed rabbits and collect the feet (the effectiveness of which can be dubious at best), "rich" is a relative term.

If you look at it in terms of dollars per hour, well, forget it. It takes a lot of hours.

If you look at it as gaining experience, studying the game, having fun, and slowly building the bankroll to the point that now and then you can try and bink a few good tourneys like the Storm and on a different size bankroll play a different game, then the word "rich" can begin to take on other meanings.

Hi SENJATROLLET. Welcome to the forum. There is an overview of the PSO site here to help you become familiar with all the site has to offer.

Andy (ahar010) has done a 12 part series of videos on building a bankroll from just $5. So with $15 you have a head start.

Good luck
