Hey guys!

I don't really have a problem when it comes to BRM, I just stick to my rules and everything's fine. I am however curious about what number of BI's you have for any given game! My numbers are as follows:

DoN: 30
ST SnG: 50
MT SnG: 75
MTT: 100
Cash: 200

Now, what are yours? Blink

Ive never really stuck to it to be honest i ciuld play a 5$ game with 600$ in account or a 11$ game with 30$ in account. Depends on my mood at the time.

I am not sure I understand this completely?
The number of BI's somebody have for any given game, but you state no levels nor stakes only different game types - I just don't get it. Or it's all just microstakes and thats it?

The number go BIs shouldn't really change much as you go up in stakes. In theory you should only be taking a certain percentage of your bankroll into a game to protect you from the swings of poker. The idea is that different game types have more or less variance so you need to compensate by holding back more BIs. But of course in reality BRM does change with your bankroll size simply due to the fact that min buy-in for cash usually needs a larger bankroll than the average small-stakes player has. And if you want to clear a no deposit bonus you simply can't stick to it.

I never stuck to bankroll management myself so not really sure what number of BIs you should have. Only if you don't mind losing that money and are happy to keep depositing more then you don't really need management. If you want to see your ROI increase steadily and not jump erratically then you probably want to increase levels gradually with your bankroll. When I was playing poker online regularly I would build a bankroll slowly and then blow it in a single losing streak. It's hard to think of money in your account as actual cash although I did withdraw some of it before I spunked it away.

Hi, everybody.

Yes, yes.

Sometimes it is necessary to adhere to such tactics. Even it turns out so in time I replaced a table (with same) and already game was replaced in your party.

Good luck at tables and in life.

The amount of BI for cash games is far to high. 40-50 buy in should be enough, unless you play like Dwan all the time. The 200 BI are better suited to MTTs. There the variance is at its maximum.

I usually play cash games quite aggressively. I've found that it's the most profitable way of playing for me and that also gives a big variance to the game.
