Also, that is the only money that you would be able to use on anything but a tournament.
T$'s can actually be converted to real $'s, but at a 5% charge.
OP you are the only one who could possibly know the answer to your question here. How would anyone else on here know what your goals or ambitions are for playing online? (ie. we don't know if your goal is to play the 10cent tourney, or to be regularly playing the Sun.$750Kguar.).
To hear that you played an $8 buyin satellite to $169.. a 1 in 20 shot with ~25% of your bankroll is just CRAZY. Unless you learn to practise some form of Bankroll Management I'd suggest withdrawling the $100 because it might be the only time you're withdrawling for awhile.
As far as just keeping $60 on your account... I guess that'd be great if you're planning on playing 2nl & $1 sng's.. but if you're planning on playing much bigger buyins than this you'd best be making a 'new plan'.
