Hi, i'm new to the game of poker and doing everything I can to get better and part of that is trying to develop a disposable bankroll to start off. What might be the best suggestions to do that and manage it? Pros say certain percentages of your bankroll max should be put into one single event but what is the percentage you guys use?
What bankroll you need depends primarily on why you started playing poker. Beginners and casual players alike will say they started playing for fun. At this stage, they play with whatever money they can spend on their hobby. They can go to casinos, play with friends, or deposit money into a virtual poker account. This fun requires money and is the fastest way to understand all aspects of poker. When I started playing, I quickly realized that I had to play carefully or poker would cost me all my other entertainment, but I loved poker and still love it.
How to create a bankroll
The main principle of building a bankroll is to do it slowly and systematically, gradually gaining experience, and not trying to immediately throw money. Of course, you can do this as long as you are financially independent and can afford to add to your bankroll whenever you want. If so, take a chance and gain experience. However, it's best to be more disciplined and calculate your bankroll based on your playing skill.
Depends on many things, usually they say the 100 buyin, some the 200.
How most of the players here, I play micro/low, so the 100 looks okay - for me personally even less 70-80.
Anyway, it means nothing, if you can't handle the bad beats, runs against you, tilts. As these things damage bankroll, so you need to find out your personal minimum, what works for you, highly depends on what you play and what level you play on.
