Hi Billnmex, while I am not a professional poker player I love the game and I am constantly trying to improve, so I wouldn't exactly say that I am a recreational player. Others play strictly for fun, the small buy ins that online offers allow these players to have a good time while not risking much money.

Time zones vary so I would think that the most profitable times to play would be at a table that is evenings or weekends for the players specific time zones. I personally don't put too much thought in the times I play, I just try to recognize the weaker players at the table and try to play pots against them.

They are the players prone to making the most mistakes so isolating and playing these players with a wide range of hands especially in position is my strategy and time really doesn't factor in too much in recognizing these players.

Hope that made sense and is helpful, good luck at the tables

sure Billnmex,

When playing cash games or any poker format you should have a bankroll management plan. That plan is up to you and what you feel comfortable with. For example if you have other sources of income you may want to have an aggressive bankroll management plan of 40 buy ins to move up in stakes. If you want to be more cautious you can make that 100 buy ins or even more.

The important thing here is to move back down in stakes if you drop under your buy in allowance.

I don't know what a good mtt strategy is as far as bankroll but I am sure somebody can help you with that

I was using a 100buy in BRM for micros $1-$2 which i think is fine but now iv had a bit of success im playing safe as i move up the levels and siding on the more cautious side with 100-200 buy in with the odd shot at nicer games.

For me BRM is the one of the most important things to master as a MTT player, it certainly helps with the run bad periods we all suffer and helps keep that pesky tilt at bay that can be suicidal for anybody's bankroll.

Hi there bil,

I kinda sit in the bracket of between recreational and regular player and my bankroll management is as follows. Currently at $45 I stick to just playing 2nl zoom 1 table as I can get plenty of action and 0.25/0.50 sit n go's any amount of players. This is my bread and butter for my bankroll. However I do like to take the odd shot now and again at anything up to a $5 buy-in to keep it fresh and get away from the standard grind. Also doing some of the more profitable satellites, like to the Sunday storm. This way if I win a ticket I can unregister and then have $11 to play around win in tournaments. This way I have alot of fun playing poker and get to improve my game dramatically.

They have all kinds of videos in the archives here, I also know of a #fischigespeiler that is doing an $80 to $8000 grinding it up challenge that you might enjoy following.

Here is the link to his day 1 video.

For tourneys (I use the same for sng's and mtt's).. I need to have 100 buy-ins in my bankroll. Anything less and when you hit a variance streak, you can bust. Even in the smaller sng's (45's for example), it is not uncommon to see 30-40 losses in a row.
