You're working on building a bankroll for the next level and let's say your game of choice is cash no-limit hold'em. Is it kosher to use your bankroll for SnG's, tourneys, or sports betting for the purpose of building or should you stay strictly within your game and level to build, and use other money for other wagering?

My opinion is stick to poker and avoid everything else when building. I say this from a sour experience in the last few days. Probably on a smaller level than you're talking about but still awful. I was starting from scratch after a long lay off and hadn't wanted to deposit yet. Was grinding decent from freerolls, micro stakes cash, and micro buyins and built up about $40 in a month or so. Then a dumbass move that I preach against. Figure I'll take a little shot and play a few hands of blackjack and maybe build some more quickly. Needless to say I was pretty much starting from scratch again today. Don't let impatience and the clouded thinking of shortcuts get the best of you like that when building. Sometimes you don't pay for the mistake. Most times you do. Cheers and good luck out there.

If you are playing different kinds of poker, I dont think, it makes a ton of sense to have a separate bankroll for each. Its also not really practical or possible, if you play on the same poker site.

What I would do instead is to move down, if you are out to try new game formats, which you are not sure, you are beating. If you are a winner in cash games and want to try SnGs, then maybe play 3$ SnGs in the beginning, even though you are bankrolled for 10$ SnGs.

If you want to play casino games or engage in sports betting, I would really prefer to keep that separated from the poker bankroll. You can not have a positive expectation in these games (maybe in sports betting, but its debatable), so its essentially the same as withdrawing your poker winnings and using them for something else.

Its also not desirable to move up in poker, just because your favourite football team won a match. It kind of defy the whole idea of bankroll building, which is to move up, when you have won enough at the previous limit to have a least some idea, you are beating it.

The same can also be said, if you get one big tournament score, like if you run deep in one of the major tournaments on pokerstars with 5.000+ players and get your buyin back 500 times. This does not mean, you suddenly now have the skills to move up several levels in cash games. So you might actually want to withdraw at least some of that money to not move up to fast.

I believe that cardschat makes it possible to build your bankroll using your freerolls, the main thing is to strictly follow bankroll management

For now, I am trying to create a bankroll by playing freerolls. In my opinion, this is the best option without unnecessary risks. In the future I plan to start playing in the SnG tournaments.

Different disciplines of poker do not interfere with one bankroll management. You just need to keep in mind that for cash games you need one buy-in size, for tournaments-another. For example, I keep 50 buy-ins for the played limit, for tournaments - not less than 100.

I agree that it doesn't matter what type of poker games you're playing. All that matters is how much you are risking each time you buy-in to a tourney/Sit 'n Go/whatever.

As an aside, I used to play cash games with auto-reload turned on. I don't do that anymore since it's too difficult to keep track of your bankroll that way.

It depends on your skill set. I struggle with this because my strength is small tournaments, but I have trouble finding the time necessary to play them. The KO sng's have been profitable, so using them to build.

There is risk everywhere. BUT if it is balanced and deliberate, you can be distracted. This does not mean that you need to put 100% of the Bank on a sports event. The amount of the bet should not be more than what you allow for a sit-and-go. As a rule, all products are present in one client. And they allow you to do it. Personally, I love football. And I often get distracted by watching matches. But I don't allow my bankroll to suffer. A little increase is quite possible.

I have one bankroll to create, I play tournaments or a cache in different types of games, and the main thing for me is that the bankroll grows and not decreases, if you play cash you should understand and approximately know how much you can spend with you at the table and play if you win, it’s good, but if you lose, it’s better to go for less bets or not play so as not to lose the whole bankroll, but a great way is to play in sit-and-go tournaments where there are few players 6-9-10-25 there you have more chances to win prizes and increase your bankroll!

My strategy is very simple. First of all, I only play in tournaments that are statistically profitable for me. And I never risk more than 1-2% of my bankroll. Due to this, my bankroll is growing steadily.
