Back on topic for a sec before the online poker being rigged nonsense continues.
OP, check out this thread http://www.cardschat.com/f13/bankrol...ow-sng-184564/
for an idea of BR management. It sounds like you're allowing your ego to get the best of you and playing above your head from the start. I've been there and done that AND gone broke before with a couple hundred bucks. It takes discipline, patience, and good play to grow a BR from a small amount but it can be done......I'm doing it right now and I started with a $20 BR. FYI, the advice I ultimately took in this thread is the 50 buyins per SNG before I move up.....it just seems safest and like someone above me said, I want to be able to withstand a bad variance streak.
To Sherbert: think about this for a minute. IF online poker was really rigged, don't you think poker communities would have figured this out by now and damned it to the masses of poker players? Also, what business sense does it make for the sites to be "rigged" I think UB is still taking a hit for allowing that poker pro (forget his name) to basically steal a ton of money online because he had access to see hole cards when he was a UB sponsor. For the record, UB DID ban that player after the situation came to light in an attempt to show they're NOT rigged.
