The games most commonly considered "nosebleed" are found on FTP, where big bet games with blinds as high as 200/400, 300/600 and even 500/1000 are sometimes seen.

Compare this to 10/20 and 25/50 games, which are merely considered "high stakes," and it makes sense why the rarefied air of these games is dubbed "nosebleed."
