My poker journey (or My road to millions).


Bank roll management

By: driven31558 @ 16:36 (EDT) / 1 / Comment ( 0 )
I have a new "system" for bankroll management.  I am applying the theory that cash games are more consistent sources of income, and tourneys are the icing on the cake.    Here's the rules for buy-ins:

Type of game                              Amount in bankroll                            Money I can risk

Tourney's:                               100 to infinity                                     10%, maybe up to 25% on occasion

                                                         1.00 to 99.99                                    10%
                                                          0.40 to .99                                        0

                                                        .00 to .39                                            What ever.  It's desperation mode.

Cash:                                            10.00 to infinity                              10%

                                                       .01 to .99                                        .75 for 7 card, .50 for hold em

Well, I'll see if this (and a little luck) can get my 1.68 bankroll back up.  lol
