I started playing online poker about 2 months ago and seem to have the feel of the site pretty good now, but I have found myself playing at bigger tables than I should and one bad beat or a good beat drains my bakroll. I have just been fooling around trying to take a chance, but now I am ready to get serious. Since I been on the site I find myself when I do run out of funds I always deposit $10 in, but I am tired of playing the mini tables with the 1 to 4 cent blinds though I do like the tables with the 0.05/0.10 and 0.10/0.25 blinds and these are the ones I prefer to play until I can master the game and move to the next level, which for me will still be at the micro level 0.10/0.20 blinds, and 0.25/0.50, I found at those tables you can make enough to pay for the expensive gas at least.....lol! I am told I should have enough in my account to cover the big blind 200 times(200 buy ins worth) So for example at the 0.05/0.10 I would need a bankroll of aat least $20.00, but if I am not getting the cards that day and just getting beat by crap, how much money do I lose before enough is enough? If I drop down to say $12 or $13, should I continue to play at that table, go to a smaller table or just pack it in for the day? Thanks for your help!

Thanks, well no wonder I am losing my money from time to time, I don't have the proper amount of amount for the tables I am playing at. my next deposit will be my last, in the future I will only be withdrawing money instead of putting it in. Wow thanks for the info!

I usually play 3 tables at a time, but I will step it up and play 4. Yeah a month should tell me if I am a winning or losing player I suppose. I will take youe advice and play the micro tables, should I play limit or no limit, and how many hands or hours a day would you recommend I play? Thanks!
