I'm not into br management thing even though i know what it is and how it works, maybe if i had more patience. So did you pick random numbers and throw them out there? Exactly why would u want to play higher buy in tourneys than sit n gos? Sit n gos have less people, better chance to win. Tourneys you have to outlast a lot of people, plus he will be playing really tight in order to get itm and wont be able to build a stack ( which you have to take risks to do that). so if he is doing 20$ mtt thats 35 tourneys he can play. I dont think thats a very good idea. And like he said he is used to the lower limits and not used to the 20$ style of play.
So i personally think, if you got patience to stick with br management then stick with it.I say 11$, 20$ heads up if you ever play that. i would stick to 5$ tourneys until you hit one and then use like half of the profit to play some 11$ ones, so technically it dont hurt yr bankroll. For cash tables you should probably stick to 25nl until you get more confident.
I also think sometimes you should use the profit of some of your sit n gos or cash tables and try playing like 20$ sit n go and see what it feels like. And definitely dont play 20$ tourneys unless you think you know you can make profit.
