First of all, don't play with such a tiny roll for the following reasons.

1) What happens, Is the when people play "Under pressure" they're not playing "Their best" as they're worried about "Losing this hand, or that hand" and thus "affecting the tiny roll that they have", which than will lead them to "Tilt and/or play higher limits that they normally wouldn't thus (I.E) chasing the losses.

So my best advice would be "Not to play", that's just me.

2) Another reason that I would be suggesting not to play Is, simply because at ACR they hold CC free-rolls 2 times a week, so by posting on here, before you know It, you'll be able to enter these games and grow your roll up quicker after a-couple of wins In the CC MTTs:).

Now I'd like to ask, what type of games are you Into? MTTs/STTs/Cash/Hyper/6max/full ring/Turbos? Exactly what do you like?

My suggestion would be don't use your BR until you reach a min of $75+ depending on exactly what you're Into

I believe that you, need to improve your bankroll, because this too short the variance will catch you playing with so little .. even if it is buy-in of 0.25. Review this, my friend. good luck..

my advice to you is to play cautiously on small tournaments or on small bets in cash games, but it's better to play tournaments for knocking out KO's are good tournaments to get money right away and raise your bankroll

With a BR of $8.50, I will would play:

.11 $100 GTD MTTs
Cardschat $100 GTD Freeroll

With the .11 MTTs, you have 77 buy-ins, which is enough for decent BRM. At microstakes, I think 50-100 buy-ins is decent. Most of the time, 1st pays between $15-$20+, which is a huge return for a .11 buy-in and will be a huge boost to the BR.

You don't have enough posts for the CC Freeroll but try to get into the club. It's a fun game and it's an easy way to boost your BR if you run well.

Just stick with these games for now and build your BR to $75+ and move onto the Manic Mondays .55 $500 and .55 $1000 GTD MTTs as well as other .55 GTD MTTs that happen throughout the week.

It will be better for your bankroll if you still play on freerolls and increase it to at least $ 50. Then you can try your hand at cash or tournaments with buyin.

0.10 - 0.25 Sit n Gos. Super micro level tournaments, below 0.50 buy-in.

Or simply be a member of CC freeroll club :) They will back you up with some $ each month so you can afford a little larger buy- ins !

Freerolls and sng's are your best bet imo. Like others have said, even if you're buying in for $1 you're probably not gonna play your best game just from the pressure of not wanting to bust. I personally hate brm, but if you have an 8.50 br and no intentions of reloading if you bust then I would definitely stick to fr's and super micros.

there are a lot of good answers here. Of course you will continue with freerolls and micro tourneys unless you deposit more money, that is all you can do.... Unless you go to the cash table PLO and shove all in. Most of those donks double up......LOL

Freerolls and SNGs (sit n go) if you want to play it safe. With $0.11 buy-in you would have nearly 80 buy ins.

Maybe use freerolls earnings to take shots in paid tourneys.
