10NL is going well so far. I had a pretty rough start to it, playing spewy, but it's very similar to 5nl. I'm learning about pot control more, following hands that aren't the nuts, but are decent-ish to the river, if it's profitable to do so, learning more about blocking bets, they are very cool.
There are a ton more short stackers at 10nl - to be honest I don't even remember there being any at 5nl, but there seem to be many 20bb ss'ers. They are easy to handle though, i'd say our all-in range should be about AQo+ and JJ+, varying depending on the laggness of the player. I've noticed short stackers like to ship it after the pot has been limped around, their range is usually fairly wide here, so you can possibly drop down to 99+, dependant on reads obv.
Stealing is much easier due to more nitty players, i'm currently running at 25% ATS, but i'm working at getting it up to 30%.
I just need to put some more volume in to be honest, this month i've only played 3k hands, which is terrible.
