I too do not deposit and have freerolled my way to BR. That said there have been times I've had some money on sites, so this is how I roll...lol...get it Bank roll..ok i kill myself.
The article said to refrain from rebuys but with most sites making even their freerolls rebuys they can be hard to avoid. Treat them as freerolls set a limit to how much you will rebuy and stick to it.
The article also says to stay away from late registration, there again sites are making it so difficult to do that. Every where i turn i see late registrations some as long as 3 hours. When micro-BRed as I am i will evaluate the blinds at late reg and come in late knowing rebuying is limited to me. Be sure a research the blind levels though to make sure you will have enough in chips to compete.
Here's to all of us making great decisions and making our poker hobby something we can "Take to the Bank!" there i go again ...sometimes i think I'm the only one laughing though.

Bankroll Management is an extremely important aspect of the game of poker for many players... however, not so for everyone. For players who want to try and make some money out of playing poker then it is incredibly important to master all of the very good advice that is available in various formats including in this very helpful article. However, for some players, who just play poker for the buzz....their approach to bankroll management is somewhat different. Some players just burn their available money as they have that put aside for poker and nothing else. They treat poker a little bit like horse racing. They turn up with $100 in their pockets and decide that they will bet that amount and if they lose they lose! If they win, then that is a bonus. Be aware of those players and make sure that you only play with what you can afford to lose.
My best piece of advice that I would offer anyone in terms of Bankroll Management is DON'T CHASE YOUR LOSSES. If you do, you will invariably find that bankroll management goes out of the window and you are very soon left with nothing. If you are having a bad session....walk away, do something else and come back another time. Poker will still be there and so will your bankroll!
