How many buy-ins should a player have before moving up the stakes for tournaments and cash games? When would a player have to move down a stake?

Hi passter!

For tournaments, a player needs to have 100 buy-ins in their bankroll to play a given level of game. However, they should also make sure that they are profitable over a large number of games too at the level... before moving up.

If you go below this, you need to move down.
