A 15$ bankroll isn't big enough for 1$ tourneys. I reccomend you play 10 or 25 cent SNGs.

Hi 0Magic14!

For using proper bankroll management, a player should have 100 buy-in's for whatever level of tourney that they are playing. This will allow them to withstand a variance swing without busting their bankroll.

With $15 then I would be playing 10 cent tourneys and quarter tourneys, where my average buy-in between them is 15 cents, as that is what I would be properly bankrolled for.
