well I went a lil nuts last night and played way past my 27 dollar bankroll, tonight I'm down to about 1.60 and about 40 fpps, any ideas how to build this pocket change into a decent bankroll? 10 or 25 cent sngs? 0.1/0.2 limit hold em?, I'm good at the 50/50s should I play the dollar one and hope to win a few in a row for cushion?

Think fifty50 is your best bet.
The cash game could be a bad suckout and poof all gone.
Im down 2 buyins at this lvl because of runner runners and wouldnt want to see you get sucked out on your last $1.
1/4 SNGs are a big time investment when you could grind out a fifty50 in a 1/4 of the time.

Between my last deposit several years ago and now my bankroll dropped to $1.65 after a withdrawel. I managed to build it back up to $20+ by starting at one 2NL table. Doubled up the $1.65, left the table, sat down at two tables with $1 at each. Went from there. Terrible bankroll management. I got really lucky. Also, the 2NL tables were 10 times fishier back then.

Limit might be a better option from what I hear. I wouldn't know though, never played it.

You could try playing a bunch of $.10 SNG's. Play super tight agressive, premium hands only.

Good luck!

I was down to under a dollar but had 50 FPP and used them to enter the Sunday 2 grand, four hours later I won ... $4. Was so close to the big money, finished 47th. Last two days have been playing no limit and playing slow until I figure out who the weak players are and then attack them when I get a good hand. Then I quit right after scoring a good hand (or at least before the next big blind). The reason for quitting is that I have often had winning sessions turn into losing ones, but the past 4 sessions have all been winners and I'm up to $10.

Next month you'll be active. Try going for a high spot and bag a minimum of $50. That will help the bankroll.
