This is a discussion on Startup bankroll rules. within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; When you guys started from the beginning, building a bank roll from scratch, how strict were your rules for BRM.
I've been thinking about that
When you guys started from the beginning, building a bank roll from scratch, how strict were your rules for BRM.
I've been thinking about that a lot the last couple weeks. Since I'm gonna be starting with a $10 bankroll I'll be playing 1/2 cent blinds with a max buy in of $2.
My number 1 rule will be that if I loose half of what I bought into the game with I will quit playing for the day. I made this rule because it will help minimize tilt from me chasing my losses.
Rule number 2 will be that if I don't loose but double my stack I will quit playing for that day also. This rule is in place to keep me from getting too careless with my stack and making bad calls and such because I think I can afford too with a big stack.
In summary I understand that in the longer run that I could be loosing money playing by those rules. Those rules will only be I place till I have the proper BR to play 1/2 cent blinds.
I'm open to suggestions and what you guys think about my plan.

Before joining table I set loss limit for myself. If I win then I raise loss limit higher.

re: Poker & Startup bankroll rules.
I do believe is good to set a loss limit. I'm not a fan of a win limit though. If you have done well and want to cash out to protect your stack, then take a break and come back later with your standard buy-in so that you are comfortable. Playing scared is just as bad as playing on tilt imo. Gl!

If you doubled your stack because of poor players at the table - why quit?
You want to take as much money off the poor players while you can.
