Sit-n-gos you want 30 buy-ins ($5+$.50 you want ~$165)
Multi-table tournaments: you don't want to spend more than 5% of your bankroll on one tournament (Don't enter a $10 tournament if you have $18 and expect to keep a bankroll)
great info cubs...i had no sense of how much to have
Crippler: i could never survive with that little lol
thats how i've lost my bankroll in the past: being told by online help that i needed 5 more raked hands...head over to .25/.5 NL HE table with my $10 and play the 5 hands fine
then keep playin cuz i'm addicted LOL and lose it all cause bigger stacks would just bully me
thanks for the info guys
NikeKix: have you played ring games before?
if so how high?
don't jump stake levels just because you have a bigger bankroll
and as for tourneys vs. ring games....just do what you're best at or what you have the most fun doing
