For some time now I've been going on about the fact that the "school" is the place for learning, not the "league". I have to admit that this has to a certain extent been an assumption on my part, as not needing basic lessons myself I haven't bothered looking at them. However, this morning I did, and I was shocked by what I found,

Todays featured lesson is bankroll management. And it states that it is perfectly fine to buy into a tournament for 10% of your roll. Are you freaking kidding me! As an MTT player you really shouldn't be risking more than 2% of your roll per tournament. And I know plenty of people who would recommend you keep it as low as 1%.

What the hell is going on here. That advice is a recipe for disaster!

I stick to 2% for MTT and 5% for a buy in on a cash table. Occasionally I'll do 5% at a SNG, but that's because the 33% ITM for a 9 table makes it worth it to me. I agree that 10% is a recipe for disaster.
