You play at 10NL with just $97.34? Haha i think you should have a look at BRM (Bankroll Management) unless of course you don't mind making another deposit because you might be doing good now but when that downswing happens your BR will hit a truck... and that downswing WILL happen. I think 5NL is your best bet, but it's not my BR it's yours so i'm not gonna tell ya what to do... just a suggestion

Thanks wee, good post.

I have to agree with eagle, I think you may be playing a bit high for your roll.
I began to 4 table these not long before black Friday. If you were to do that, you'd have your whole roll on the tables if you buy in for the max...and that ain't good.
I don't doubt you're probably doing well at this level, you just have to be careful. I would suggest going to 5NL too, but if you stay, and if you have a downswing at all, I would jump back to 5NL.

No, we understand...5NL (.02/.05) refers to the max buy-in, usually 100 BBs. Now the .05/.10 has a max of $25 if I remember right., the same as .10/.25...so it can get a bit confusing. I usually just refer to the blinds because of this.
If you buy in for the max on a .05/.10 table, you've got 25% of your bankroll at the table. That is too high for good br mgmt.
Like I said, you may be doing well here, but just a couple bad hands and it will put a serious dent in your roll.

I always buy in for the minimum on cash tables. Too many bad beats to risk any more than that.

But when you buy-in for the minimum you can't really play to your full potential and when you do hit that big hand you won't get paid off fully

Weee just understand that if you buy in for less than the max on a ring table the regs (and there are regs at even 10NL) are going to mark you as a fish. Anything that looks weak or timid to them,they try to exploit it. Now if you think that you're solid enough to use the fact that they will 3x and 4x bet you to death to your advantage, then that's good. Otherwise not so much.

Remember you may not have run into any of them yet (it's possible,there are a lot of tables out there...) but you will eventually. And they WILL put you to the test over that. It's SOP for them.
