Why not try depositing some of this money online then, grinding say even 50nl? Ok this might seem boring, but for this you would have plenty of buy-ins and can build up a roll (I assume you're good enough) Then once you have 8k, you have sufficient funds to take these bad beat.
I certainly wouldn't be brave enough playing the limits you are with only 10 buy-ins, I don't think it matters how good you are. I think I'd only play limit hold em at best at those amounts :P
Anyway, best of luck - if you don't play online then I hope you do well at cash but on a personally, 10 buy-ins I think you're risking ruin for something you worked so hard for.
EDIT: Nevermind! I see you're from newyork, ignore the playing online post.
I guess I'm out of options, apart from maybe playing LIMIT hold em or unless there is a site for U.S players?
