re: Poker & How much money should you bring
Well I know for limit Hold'em Poker, the recommended starting bankroll size is 300x the BB for the limit you plan to play at.
So, for example, if you wanted to play the $2/$4 limit games, you should start with a bankroll of $1200.
Also, for sit-n-gos, the recommended starting bankroll is 30-50 buy-ins,
Sp if you were playing the $5+$.50 sit-n-gos, you would want to start with a bankroll of around $165-$275.
