advice required for low stakes bank roll building
I have played poker for a few years now. Nothing to serious, win a bit lose a bit.
No real bank roll, just use my wages to play. If I win, I draw it out, if I lose then so be it, I play again another day.
This has been okay, but now I want to get a little more serious.
I play PLO and NLH at low stakes from 0.05 / 0.10 to 0.5 / 1.00 dependant on spare cash. My wife has just had a baby so funds will get a little tighter.
I tend to be better at NLH, the swings on PLO drive me crazy.
What I want to know is I would like to start near the bottom 0.05 / 0.10 what would I need to start off with bankroll wise, how many hands should I play a week to move up levels and what sort of profit do I need to make to move up levels?
I am also kind of ignorant to Rake back, could anyone explain it to me in laymens terms?
Look forward to constructive comments
