Bad bankroll management is only turning good players into bad ones and bad players into horrible ones.
I also tend to believe that bankroll management is particularly important when you have a large bankroll. If your bankroll in $2, I don't think bankroll management is that important. You can go broke... you're not gonna be broke yourself!
I also find a bit strange to stick to a fixed percentage of your bankroll when you play MMTs or satellites. Instead you should try to work out the likelyhood of winning a certain tourney or satellite. Winning a 50 player satellite with 20 seats is not the same as winning a 200 players satellite with 5 seats up for grabs.
