I've read something about between 20 and 40 buy in. And when you lose 5 buy-in back to the previous step.
What advice would you give about BR management?
Another question, I saw comments saying that in the lower limits, the best thing to do is to play ABC poker, playing for value, without too much bluff, 3bet light, or inventing a lot. Analyzing the current situation of online poker, do you agree with this point of view? If so, until what limits do you think it applies?
Like an investment portfolio, it all depends on how much risk you are willing to allow yourself to endure. Some people can tolerate high risk and are willing to play with 15 buyins. According to Daniel Negreanu, some players won't even sit down unless they have 100 buyins. I personally think that's a bit excessive.
I like Chris Ferguson's rules:
I must have 20 buyins (100 BBs) before sitting down at a cash game.
I must have 50 buyins before registering for a tournament.
If at any time I have more than 10% of my bankroll on the table, I will cash out and/or find a different game.
