re: Poker & How to continue after having built a bankroll ?
5% of your bankroll is fine for playing sit and go's (single table) which would leave your buyins at anything up to $50. I wouldnt recomend jumping up that high straight away though, try a few $22's the money is good if your winning, and its a decent step up in level from the $11's.
MTT play is a different beast, because most of the money is sitting in the top 3 places, so getting ITM lots is not your goal, the goal is the top half of the final table. Hence the variance is much higher, 1-2% should be your max buy-in here, leaving your max buy-ins at $24.
