How much bankroll is needed to grind 0.25/0.50 online?

Postby Fatt888 » Thu Jun 04, 2009 1:31 pm

I started off with $50 bankroll and I've just grinded to a decent bankroll to 1K playing online MTTs. I am trying to play some cash games online this month.
Can someone tell me what bankroll is needed to play 4 tabling @ 0.25/0.50?

Standard is 20 full buyins, meaning you need $1000. It also depends on whether you are willing to move down stakes after losing, say 5 buyins.

wow 1k just by playing mtts? whats ur buy-in?

i just if u play .25/.5 with 100BB per table, then u will need $50 a table.
so u factor in the number of $50s u comfortable playing with, eg 10x100BB = $500, 50x100BB = $2500
depends on indvl i guess, but some recommmend at least 50x100BB...

anyone else can advise?

$.25/$.50 NL - buying in for $50? $200 would only be 4 buy-ins. You can lose that in a day. (not that it is common, but it's certainly possible on a rough day)

I would say at least $1k - error on the safe side $1.5 K. If you are truly grinding, you will need a cushion. I am not saying every day is an apocalyptic disaster session, but it is certainly easy to get have a 4 stack downswing. Better to be safe than sorry when it comes to bankroll management. :geek:

20x Buying, if hum, 22x buyin
if tight player i think 20x is good , if loose , need more 25-30buyin
monitor your own swings, if big swings need more buyins and small swings less :P
