Huh, so you're basically sticking to tourneys that make your bankroll to be 300x
the buy-in ... which I have to say is pretty large compared to what I've been reading. I definitely don't want to be greedy here, but I've read that BRs can/should be anywhere from 40x to 100x the buy in -- and that's a wide range.

Good suggestion. Thanks.
The other thing I'm still not sure about is whether you should treat multi-table SnG's differently from MTT's -- that is, whether the ratio of BR to buy-in ought to be different from cash games, and from one another. I've read you need a min of 20x max BI's for full ring games, 40x for SnG's, and 100x for MTT's ... but I've also heard a lot of different guidelines. Anyone have any opinions?
BTW, there are loads of examples of these suggestions online, but there's one here
