This is a discussion on $50 - 10nl? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Hi, Im just wondering, 1-2nl kills me lol, so could I buy in for 2.50 and play 5nl? I know its 50 bb insted of
2nl is easy enough to beat. the past week and a half i've taken my bankroll from $1 to $90 at 2nl alone.

re: Poker & $50 - 10nl?
well if 1-2 kills you then I dont know about moving up. If you meant you cant take that amount seriously then just move up and still buy in full, especially if you can reload(ie put another 50 if you lose). Buying in half stack is a bigger deal than being underrolled especially since I will assume you wont be playing with scared money since you cant take 1-2 seriously. Also if you are good enough to beat 5nl then you have a very low chance of going broke due to variance.

What widowmaker said. I'd start with 5nl with $50, buyin full. If you drop below $30 move to 2nl to rebuild. The lower the level the less buyins you need as its so hard to lose.
