What would you do?
Wait till you have the table minimum and move right away
Wait till you have the table maximum and move
Do you have a specific price to reach before moving?
I'm starting to think its ok to move when u have the minimum, that way i'm not stuck on .01/.02 for so long.
Anyways, interested to read ur feedback.
I'm sure all the rules made up for bankroll management are great and based on fine math but I don't see it.
I deposited $25 and tried to play the .02/.05 tables. I found out pretty quickly that people were less likely to get bluffed and would basically play any two cards. So I wasn't winning like I should. Plus the FPP were few and far between and I needed 250 to clear a bonus.
So I decided the best thing for me was to play .05/.10 with $3 buyins. This lowers the possible loss amount at any one time, of course it restricts the amount you can win too. I've decided to move up to .10/.25 when my bankroll reaches $75 which would have happened long ago except I keep playing tournaments and not winning.
I'm close to that level though, hopefully will reach it soon. Then when I move up to the next level I'll buyin at $6 until $150, then $10 and keep going up in levels as I get to $200.
Like I said, I'm pretty sure I'm doing everything wrong, according to the established systems but it's working for me. So far.
