I hope that you realize that per bankroll management, you shouldn't be playing these until you have $150 in your bankroll. to be in a tourney and be properly bankrolled for it, a player needs 100 buy-ins in their bankroll.

I don't think you have a downswing. When you hit one, you will bust your banrkoll with these management.

I have to agree with John and Rogger. Playing HU with a small bankroll is a recipe for disaster. A totally normal downswing will bust you. I'd play something with much lower variance if I were you.

I disagree, there's nothing wrong with taking shots so long as it doesn't affect your life roll. Never risk what you can't afford to lose but if the money doesn't mean anything and you can redeposit then it's fine. As long as you keep records and treat the money as entertainment then I don't see any harm - and the chance to turn it into something big.

Where bankroll should matter is when the money means something to you. I'm certainly not working to the 100 buy in rule for my challenge but I will work to it if I can turn it into something serious.

I agree partly with ovalman I play poker for entertainment I love the games and play most games anywhere from $1 to $7 which ever has the most entrants and ready to go. My BR is usually below $100.00. lately I have been playing mostly $0.50 and $1 45 man sngs cause they fill up fast.

BUT


like ARTY,DAVE,SANDTRAP,and many others have said BANKROLL MANAGEMENT is very important to players who are actually trying to become poker players. For one thing it developes patience in a player, it shows them every thing has to be earned you don't just jump in and make a lot of money, that you have to work your way up the same as in any thing you do. So for those of us that are here for fun and entertainment go ahead do what you do. BUT for those who are here to and want to be players, learn the game, and advance up the ladder of success I suggest you practice bankroll management, unless you have unlimited funds you can put in your account.

Good points above.

There is a huge difference between strict bankroll management that applies to my poker bankroll and if a friend gives me $20 to spin up on their behalf. My friend is not looking for me to start on $.25 MTSNGs they understand and want the gamboool they are getting themselves into, they want either 0 or 100 in a couple of days and in the past I was happy to have a bash. These days the percentage I would charge would not make it worth their while

So GL sunil spin it up.
