So if your Walker site allows for $4 buyins at the 04nl tables then I would want to be rolled at $80 to feel safe. Below this is red zone... technically too low to even be playing 04.
If the next step is 08, then I'd want to have the full $160 before moving up, and set a stop limit on the downswing that is common when getting used to new limits.
I started with $10 at stars. I played 2nl waaay TAG (well at least for me as I am a F I S H... 18/10 ish) until I had $50 and I opened up and played 6max, more loose where I do a little better.
I did not spend any real time at 05nl or higher until I had $200. 05nl has $10 max buyins. Technically $200 is also rolled for 10nl.
So that's how I handle bankroll.
In many of pokers aspects of strategy being too conservative is a terrible error.
Being "too conservative" in bankroll management isn't really one of these errors. you might move more slowly, but you will do it in safety.
Thanks CAPS, I get what your saying and it walker had a .01/.02 i would be playing at. And i will not take a crack at the sit&gos till i have more in my BR... And i only go in with the min witch is .50.
It looks like there are less fish in walker then in ub and they are with CP and you know how they have the stars next to there nick ??? they are the ones i am playing at the tables most of the time and they will fold quick or pay for calling me
thanks CAPS you put some light on the topic
