Bankroll: In the beginning...
I started playing Poker less than two years ago and I knew nothing at the time. To say I was green is an understatement. I deposited the minimum amount and used that money at the most micro of stakes. I played in freerolls
, micro cash games, low stakes SNGs, read books, etc, etc. This money was meant to be a learning experience and have fun.
Now that I am having success at these micro stakes, I am thinking about BR management. I must confess that I am completely in the dark on what stakes I should be playing. I read Chris Ferguson's BR story and other threads on this site but cannot find a good starting point. 5% for cash games and SNG seems way too conservative but this comes from someone with no idea what he is talking about.
I am looking for advice. I currently play .10/.25 cash games and 1.25 SNG. What bankroll should I have to survive the ups and downs? Am I playing too low stakes for the SNG? I just don't know if I should be playing at higher stakes and make more money or go lower so I am not playing above my means. My goal is to have fun, make money and never have to re-invest/re-add to my bankroll.
