Here i wanna share my Bankroll with u...I am a micro player,after i won my first and 2nd 2.50 S&NG tournament,i decided to move to 4.50 S&NG tournaments.I finished 1. my first 4.50 then i said yes here has decent players i can learn how to play better here...Played 21 4.50 S&NG tourrnamenst and made that Bankroll.also joined 15 usd 2 times but i dont think i can play there yet...i think 4.50 is better to make some Bankroll to join other bigger tournaments...Thx for comments

let me congratulate you on a good job 1st

I'm sorry to tell you this but spending 25% of your bankroll on the 1st game is not good bankroll management.

It is great that you have the confidence Other and it is great to see you doing well. But......... this is very poor bankroll management indeed and you even know it.
The problem is that sometimes we get too confident and then a little ole thing called variance ( which is mostly out of our control ) smacks us in the face.
For example on my last 100 games of $3.50 9 man sng's I have finished 4th 17 times! Some are bad choice but most just the cards! This can crush a bankroll very quickly if we are not careful or rather overconfident not to mention what it does to your tilt-o-meter!

Hit a nice variance upswing there

Time to slow down and make sure to play proper limit for your $485 bankroll. Hopefully you can turn it into $1000! Well done and good luck.

The $4.50s are right where you want to be with that bankroll, 100 buy ins is what I think is good BRM.

You are definetly right criss after i posted this my bankroll going to really good downswing haha i am losing every hand (big pots only ofc) preflop i am way way far front and flop gives me set,but runner runner it comes flush or straight.and do i need to say i beated all my pocket AA KK QQ?no i dont think so.Some miracle hand touching my cards and always i am going out from tournaments with great cards...Like i did 5 sec ago..i know this is poker... but usually (%90) cards are running really bad for me for turn and river.well my bankroll is 300 $ atm i am playing 3.50 and 4.50 atm....finished 4 or 5 tournaments 19 lol...i have to learn bbl play but when u have AA it is hard to fold man well finally i am trying to improve my poker game but i dont think i can do that in here.I am suck at this game tbh well gl on tables which i havent meet with it in my pokerstars life...
