I do want to build a strong BR but I dont want it too take years
The prize pool relative to the buy-in and field size is always the same - only opposition gets tougher.
I think you need to take a different approach.
Think in terms of ROI and buy-ins won.
BRM is not a tool to guarantee you millions with a 0.10$ buy-in.
BRM if sticked to should prevent you from going busto in a short period of time when you run bad or unlucky.
Trust me those days/weeks/months will come.
After all it's your money - you can do what you want... play 5.50 MTTs
with 26 BIs if you want to strain BRM but don't say you haven't been warned.
I'm currently building up my BR on PS aswell and started with 34$.
The graphs I post are from 1st of november until now.
Note that I only played 43 real-money games there (+ playmoney league and fun games) so my sample size is really small.
I do like the graph and the ROI though.
