BRM and tilt control are different things that require different skills and traits, you can play with 100 buyins but if your gonna tilt off a roll then your gonna tilt off 100 bi's just as easily as you would tilt off 20 bi's.
I usually set stoplosses, if i'm down 2 bi's in a session then I pause for a sec, look at how they were lost and how i'm feeling, if it was coolers and i'm still calm then i'll carry on, if it was spots where i spewed, even if im feeling calm I prob stop, b/c im obv not playing well for whatever reasons, just because I dont feel particularly angry doesnt mean i'm not tilting and chasing losses.
IMO, when talking about BRM, tilt shouldnt come into it, if you have tilt issues the solution isnt to play with more buyins, it might be part of the answer but it shouldnt be the main focus on ridding yourself of tilt....its too figure out why your tilting and stop it, because if i've learnt anything in all the time ive spent at the micros, its that tilting consistently and easily is the No1 way to make sure you dont get out of the micros, and a calmer demeanour whilst playing is FAR more important than knowing what limit you should be playing, you can know all the BRM rules in the world and stick to them religiously, but if your going to blow up and tilt off 10bi's everytime you get coolered or sucked out on then your not going anywhere
