only around 10% of my total br. You could essentially be assured that you were not stressing about any br fluctuation/variance, and thus be a lot more certain that it was not effecting your play, and/or leading to some kind of downward tilt spiral.
I think you would start to feel the pain a bit, even if subconsciously, if you lost 6x buy-in and your br was only 20x-30x buy-in- (that's a fairly big percentage).... at least I know I felt that way....
