this. if you continually play stakes where you give yourself a chance to wipe out your bankroll, it will happen. maybe not the 1st or 2nd time, but maybe the 45th time, or the 90th time. seriously. variance will always find a way to surprise you, and if you're not protecting yourself against variance, you don't even have a fighting chance
now, if you're prepared for this to happen, and have plenty more money to reload for when you go bust, then go right ahead. but at some point you have to settle into proper bankroll management or else it's just a matter of time until you hit a streak that will wipe you out
"proper" bankroll management with a roll of $125 would be to play like .02/.05 at the highest. with a roll of $50, it would be more like .01/.02
