How many big blinds should your poker playing bankroll be? I've been playing at globalpoker.com and amassed a $600K bankroll from a seed bank of $5K only to lose the entire lot within 12 hours at $1K-$2k NLH. Obviously I suffered some pretty horrible bad beats . Based upon that abysmal performance, I've reach the conclusion that one should need at least 1000 big blinds to manage effectively against the hideous beast known as variance. Any thoughts?
I think you probably made a lot of bad calls, then again you played with play chips and it kind of changes how to play poker because it doesnt affect you like real money. You need like 40 buy ins to counter variance though and lose as minimum as possible when you run bad
Is the buyin amount a personal choice? Mine is usually 100 big blinds. The game was far too huge for my bankroll. Yea in a live money game, I tend to walk away if I'm running bad to avoid steaming or chasing. Learned that technique from blackjack.
