I think you have too much time on your hands... don't you have a final to study for, or something? :p

lol actually more of a coincidence. Just got home, came upstairs, checked email, checked cardschat, browsing the right where it shows the most recent post in each thread, "wtf none?". Saw we had a beginner section, made first post lol.

How much should my BR technically be when playing a 3$ rebuy :)

i think the general guideline is like 40-50 tournament buy-ins. for a rebuy i guess you'd probably want to figure out an approximate average amount you usually spend yourself, since people have different rebuy period styles. then count that as the buy-in. so if you average like 2 rebuys and an add-on, about $12, then $600 would be a conservative bankroll to have to play it consistently

..although my PS roll was like under $80 when i got 3rd so.. :eek:

Wow, that much! I spend no more than 15$ but on an average 9$. I go into them with 30 buck in my account, I'm pretty patient and make ITM the majority of the time and I've won more in them then have lost, but maybe its time I start looking at BR management.

I'm playing 10$ 45man sng's I lose 3 win 1 and ITM many kind of thing, that keeps me afloat...Do you really think BR management applies in Mtt's compared to cash games? I know it should apply in sng's.

do you really cash in the 3r the majority of the time?
that's almost godlike...

I think the correct number is 3.5*top prize - 10*expected ROI +3.792833*k

where k is a constant adjusted for how rigged each site is against you.

:D

well if anything BRM can apply more in MTTs than SnGs because the variance is higher. but the PS $3r.. i know with your style you cash a pretty high %, so there's a good chance that even with $100 consistently in your account, you wouldn't be at risk. bankroll guidelines tend to be extremely conservative because it's kind of about how much you need to withstand even the harshest end of variance and bad luck. worst case scenario sort of stuff that you in all likelihood won't experience

$30 is definitely way too little to withstand a bad run, but as long as you have more funds that you can reload without problem just in case, then it's not that big of a deal imo :)
