Nah, it just fills up every time you fold your blinds or lose a hand, but it gets you max value if you get it in good vs another full stack. This last bit compensates for everything.
If you dwindle down to 0.75$, for instance, and get it in good, you double up to 1.50$. With a full stack, you'd double up to 2.00$. The difference is TWICE the amount you've lost before this point.
If you worry it'll burn through your bankroll, then occasionally check your bankroll to ease your mind. Just be aware that that's results-oriented thinking...
About the limping: I'd reason that I want to open-raise every hand that I'm willing to get it in with preflop, to do precisely that: 4-bet shove his 3-bet.
With all other hands that are too good to pass up but would like to see a flop first, I'd limp so his 3-bet will only be about the size it'd be had we open-raised ourselves and he called.
Don't know what others think of this, though.
