hi
Bankroll is one of the fundamental pillars to be successful in poker, it is our tool of work. But when deciding the number of boxes we need we are blind and there are many opinions about it, from who play with 20 boxes to those who say that they need 400. Why does each say one thing? How many boxes are needed?

It largely depends on what game you play(cash, MTT,SNG) and what do you limit. If you play MTT or SNG, you still need to consider the speed.

Also the amount of buy ins you need for cash, MTTs and SNGs depends if your a part time, recreational, full time or a professional player and also if your bankroll is separate from your living expenses or if it's altogether all these factors you must also consider when laying out a strategy for your bankroll management plan moving forward.

I believe that exercising proper poker bankroll management is one of the most important elements in order to become a successful and profitable player in the long term.
As to your question, I would say $100 will be more than a sufficient bankroll if you intend to play NL2 ($0.01/$0.02 blinds) cash games and/or up to $1 buy-in MTTs/STTs. Note that this is a relatively conservative approach.

Absoluty I agree with you Tony. Except for a one cent two cent buy in with a max buy in of two dollar. will 20 times 2 dollar be enough. So for 1/2cent blind with a 2 dollar buy in YOU ONLY NEED 40 DOLLAR. A fun fact is, that if someone is willing to only play freerolls, he could collect $40 and start a grinding career. This is only done by very few. Cause it's takes a lot of discipline.

Depends on the game you are going to play and the strategy you are going to follow.
When you are playing with a small bankroll, you need to leave out all these fast paced games,'which are mostly gamble and can eliminate your bankroll in no time (like zoom poker)
But yes i believe too that in 1,2 cents limits 40-50 is enough and can take you long way,
following the bankroll management.

I forgot to mention yesterday that optimal levels of bankroll also depend on how many tables you normally play. So, if you are planning to simultaneously play 20 or more NL2 cash games for long hours, for instance, you might need to keep at least $100 (equivalent to 50 buy-ins) in your account to comfortably deal with inevitable variance and downswings.
