There are plenty of threads on bankroll management on CC, so try the search utility I'm sure you will find the answers there. I think your bankroll should have at least 20 x buy ins, preferably more. So for the $5.5 games aim for at least a BR of $100+.

It takes money to make money in poker, meaning if you can win money from freerolls but after that you must make that money bigger so that you will be able to play for more worth while games.

General consensus is that you should have 50 to 100 buy-ins for tournaments. If you are a super agressive player, you should shade to the higher end. Therefore, you are already playing way high for your bankroll. $1 is a better size.

I use to think this, but I think this is a little bit too nitty. I think if you use a decent stop/loss strategy and drop down if you lose 5 bi's then 20+ should be sufficient (I personally work on around 30 BI's). I would certainly recommend 50-100 if your multi tabling heavily imo.

My FT br is now in the $200 range, and I could probably justify moving to the $5 tourneys, but I'm not yet feeling comfortable at the $1-3 tourney's. So, being in no rush as I know I won't be turning pro real soon, I will bide my time, slumming with the fish till I know how to win when I want to, and where I want to, or come awfully damn close to that.

If you can't bide your time, then just jump in with both feet running, but be prepared to suffer severely ugly setbacks.
