re: Poker & how much should I buy in for?
As I understand it your bankroll determines the dollar value you should go in a game with and over time not lose all your money. Five percent of your Bandroll is about the maximum. But your total bankroll has the affect to reduce you to about 2% if it is very small - that is about where you are now. If you win 10% of the games you go in - that pretty good.
I'm in USA and the Visa
gift cards I used to put money in the poker cites has dried up, therefore it is essential that my bankroll grows. It is just recreation for me - I don't expect to ever become professional - If I lose my bankroll, I'm stuck until I find a safe way to fund my recreation.
