So as a low stakes player my biggest challenge is managing my bankroll. My typical game is .02/.05 NL partly because I find .01/.02 too much like spin N go where's it's all in or nothing. I also enjoy micro MTT but I actually tend to stay away from the SNG's. At least for now, just on preference.
So here's my question - I've seen strategy for managing your money from as tight as playing only as high as 20-50 buy-ins, to a low of 7 buy-ins. What has worked for you managing it? I've obviously like to build it, but what's a good threshold to move up? Do you do it to test the water, or wait until you've reached a certain number of buy-ins at the next stakes?
100 buy-ins for MTT's you can have swings, which must be protected by those amount.

A lot of people recommend 20-40 buy-ins for cash games, but I like to be even more conservative.
100-200 buy-ins for MTT.

re: Poker & Bankroll Management
Best is 100+ buy-ins. Will cover you when you have wide swings...variance can be a nasty thing sometimes. With 100 buy-ins if you find you are losing consistently, then you have some leaks you need to find and fix. If you are up and down, that is fairly typical. If you are running good, enjoy it and use the opportunities. Just remember not to cash out more than the 100 buy-ins you need to keep you well covered. Gl!
