I consider a player is professional if they earn all of their income from playing poker - like a job 8-)

30BI is fine for 4 tabling recreational player.
professionals who play >12 might want to have at least 50BI....

i 9-11 table and I took a shot at NL100 when I had 20BI BR which thinking back was a bit aggressive and i could have gone broke if i didn't have the discipline to move down if i lost a few BIs. Thankfully I ran good and it stuck.

i'm looking to take a shot at NL200 soon but this time i'm waiting for 30BI to be on the safer side.....plus NL100 is pretty good money too so no reason to be too aggressive with my shot-taking until i'm feeling comfortable about it.

waiting to take a shot with anything >30BI for a recreational player may be way too nitty IMO unless you are happy enough with the current stakes and have no plans to move up...

i've been playing for 1+ years only. started off grinding SnGs with 200USD bankroll....highest i went to was the 10+1 on FT.
Went thru a pretty bad downswing at that stake where my ROI for the month was -28% and halved my BR. Decided then that SnGs at higher stakes will have variance that I can't tolerate.

Decided to try cash starting with NL25. Took me 6 months to reach NL100 where I am right now. First month in cash I was a losing player. From then I was either up or break even (which means profit when I include RB) :P + iron man bonuses, it's not too bad being just a small winning player when you are grinding as a hobby. still so many things to learn and improve on before i can beat NL100 at 4+PTBB/100.

No regrets moving to cash since it's much more flexible than SnGs where here i can stop playing whenever i want and not have to wait till the SnG finishes.
Which helps greatly for a married man....

I don't really think it's all that great to do it as a job. The mental aspect of it will be very different when you know that the food you have to put on the table comes from the poker table. as a hobby, i think it's a great one. stay at home, make $$$$, my wife prefers this than me going to KTVs i guess. LOL....

GL to all at the tables...

I started pretty aggressively.. 2 tabling NL20 to NL50 FR with just 150 euros on Entraction..

Did well, moved to Stars for more traffic and started playing NL100 with 20BI playing 6-8 tables.

Now have 30 BIs for NL200 but skill wise I don't think I'm ready to move up yet, but will take shots when I get 5 more BIs. Its a mental thing I guess.

There are lots of recommended guidelines for bankroll management at different stakes but if your main goal is to make money then anywhere from 20-40 buyins are recommended; the higher the stakes, the deeper your bankroll.

If you have an easily replaceable bankroll and your main goal is to have fun and maybe make some money while doing it, then if you're comfortable playing with 5-10 buy ins then its not a problem. You might earn 5k a month from your daytime job and want to take out $500 to play nl50, as lower levels don't really give you a kick.

Take this chance to ask. What does "NL20, NL50, NL100" means?

NL=No-Limit

The number denotes the Buy-In amount and assumes 100 Big Blinds.

Eg:

NL20 = $20 Buy-In, Blinds at 10c/20c
NL50 = $50 Buy-In, Blinds at 25c/50c
NL100 = $100 Buy-In, Blinds at 50c/$1

I am one of the low stakes players on here. I only deposited $50 and try to play to reasonable BR guidelines. I could have deposited more money, I can afford to. I think they probably are pretty profitable. Most players play super horrible heads up and are going to make HUGE mistakes and really exploitable plays really often.
