word type: poker slang

  1. Games between the buy-in levels of $200 ($1-$2 blinds) and $1,000 ($5-$10 blinds).


At this level of play you will find most online professional poker players. The money is good enough to where a decent volume and win-rate will yield a healthy income. It also has a field large enough to where players can multi-table to their capacities.

The Difference

The jump from small-stakes games to mid-stakes games is generally accepted as the hardest to make. It outweighs the move from mid-stakes to high-stakes and certainly outranks in difficulty the transition from micro-stakes to small-stakes.
