A relatively minor clarification, I said what if I need "the money I'm making," as in the money I'm using the now diminished bankroll to produce that happens to not be being produced.
Also, I'm not actually in any sort of situation like this, this is all hypothetical, put forth to help me better understand the nuances of bankroll management for any non-hypothetical attempts in the future. So, under this hypothetical assumption, I'm not actually being outplayed.
Finally, you mentioned recalculating to a lower buy in. When something like this happens to someone, how much of the profit from this diminished rate should go toward rebuilding, and how much should go toward the money you want to actually withdraw and spend? 50/50?
