Hey guys my question today is how do you to control you bankroll?
For me is a little bit difficult cuz when I did lose, later I go win and so and finally I haven't even any stability of my bankroll .I need ur help I'm always up and down all the time.
I am fairly new to poker as well. Up to this point I have been able to manage my bankroll with success. What I do is the maximum buy-in for a tournament or cash table is only use 1/5th or 20% of my bankroll. So if I have a $100 bankroll the maximum I will enter a tournament or cash table for is $20. That way if I don't place in the tourney or lose it all at a cash table I still have plenty left to enter another. For me this helps me prevent from losing to much. If I go on tilt at a cash table and lose it all I will just wait until the next day to play again. It helps me manage my bankroll and prevent me from going on tilt and losing my whole bankroll.
I.m finding this a little difficult as well. I only play tourneys and have been playing a $1 tourney I like but then rebuys are $2 and add ons are another $1 so you can easily be in for $6 or so to have a shot.
