For a guy to have a 500k bankroll he must either have a) inherited a large sum b) earned 500k doing something or c) earned 500k playing poker.
In the case of a) the OP is a huge degen who is probably going to end up killing himself after a long battle with a massive gambling addiction. Your advice is not going to help him then.
In the case of b) that's retarded because he can clearly afford to play 100nl as a losing player indefinitely but his gambling addiction will probably end in the same place as a). Again your advice will not help him.
In the case of c) he needs to get staked to play 400nl at a minimum and begin rebuilding his life. Your advice is probably the LEAST helpful for this guy.
Assuming the OP is +EV at at least midstakes poker he's not going to start out playing 2nl with the likes of you. The reason why you shouldn't even be in this thread is that you didn't instantly know that.
EDIT CLIFFS: And in my post I stated pretty clearly that I hated gambling. I DO gamble for a living (stockmarket=gambling obv). I told the OP that he needed to figure out what his relationship with risk was going to be. This is a concept that's easy to grasp for basically anyone who gambles for a living.
