Gettin hang of BR management these days :P
Is $50 a big amount for you? I mean does it hurt you if you lose it? If you can redeposit easily, i'd actually start playing the $5 sngs already, tbh.
Otherwise, I would most certainly play the $2 sngs now, and only move down if your BR goes below $40. Start taking shots at $5 sngs when you reach $100 or something.
BRM is a nice concept, but as long as you play micro stakes, i do believe you can be quite aggressive BRM wise. The 3 keys to aggressive BRM, though, are
1. move down as aggressively as you move up. otherwise you'll go busto
2. don't play with scared money. if it doesn't feel confortable at the higher stake, you're not ready to move up yet.
3. you need to get a feel of your edge. BRM is only good when your expectation is positive in the games you play. Only move up when you do have a +EV.
