This is a discussion on I have $5.3. what should I do on this bankroll? within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Yeah, the title is content.
In this bankroll. what should I do?.
SnG0.25? Cash game?. Etc??....
My suggest is play limit holdem cash games or keep it and try to get bigger bankroll from freerolls.
Of course if you are sure about sng 0.25 if you will build your bankroll with this than you can play them.

That ^ is probably your best bet. (I think 100 buyins for SnG is wayyy too many, especially at the $0.25 buyin level).
Anything is possible... I've built up a couple of bankrolls (without ever going busto) from intial freeroll cashes of ~$3 & $9 (on Carbon Poker & DoylesRoom (which is now A.C.R.). I've also done this on a few other sites too.
Keep playing the freerolls too... in hopes of getting a bit more $'s to work with.
$.25 Sngs if you can find them. If not, get used to playing freerolls for quite a bit to get your bankroll up. You could try 2NL, but unless you get lucky it won't last long. Variance in cash games can be quite high when you are just learning. Gl!
I started with a $10 BR on Pokerstars a few months ago. Played 1c/2c and have built it up to $127 currently. Along the way I played a few $1.50 and .50c SNGS.
So you CAN build it if you play correctly at those levels.
I've taken the occasional stab at 25c/50c limit and had to drop back down 1c/2c. So since then I'm playing strictly at bankroll recommendations.
Once I get it up to $150 or $160 I'll move up to 2c/4cNL.
Buy in for 0.80c at 1c/2cNL and don't look back... just keep going until you get up to about 20 or 30 bucks and then try a few .50c SNGS to help boost it... but keep your eye on the prize. Reaching $150 to move up a level.
If you want to do more money in a short time, you can play cash games if you don't bother when you lose it, because the risk is there. Or you can play tournaments, where you have to be in the 20-30% of the players to win money.
Depends what you want to play.
For NL2 thats way to small BR... you need at least 20$ (10 buyins)... probably more, but those 10 buyins is a minimum.
If you would like to grind 0.25$ SNGs you can try that, but I would reccomend more freeroll-grinding and then starting to play with a 20$-ish bankroll.
I think that you should play SnG 0.25$ and MTT 0.11 or maximum 0.27$ and satellites to play tournaments with high entry for example 0.11$+R sat to bounty builder 5.50$ or another tournaments like that , and the rest play SnG 0.25$ and 0.10$
