$40 is the smallest safe cash game bankroll, I really do think that if you don't want to go bust that 20 max buy ins is the minimum
for a bankroll but any more than that and your risk of going bust if you're a winning player is very, very low.
Honestly if you've got a pattern of making a little bit of money then going bust, that sounds like poor bankroll management and losing long term with the $50/$60 spikes just being positive variance. If either of these things are true then holding onto a bankroll is impossible until you stick to BRM and improve your game to better than losing or break even.
