Re: *** Official Winrates, bankrolls, and finances ***

What I really was getting at was what it proper bankroll for 1/3? I get 600 is little for 1/3 . More or less I was just trying to see how many buy ins of 300 should I have for a proper roll

$600 is fine, I usually don't go over $200. You can use a shorter stack to your advantage.

Seriously though, post the QQ hand where everyone can see it.

You should decide how much money your willing to lose and put that towards poker. This goes for both winning players and losing players. There's no point in keeping a $10k bankroll if you're not actually willing to risk losing it all.

How much you need to keep a low risk of busting your roll depends on you. If you're losing obviously you're 100% to go broke in the long run if you play enough, no matter how many buy-ins you set aside for poker. To a small winner I'd probably recommend 30/$9000. That is if outside money never gets added.

This isn't a bankroll, this is a session budget.

Well, I always thought of it as a "pocket bankroll".

Do you have a full time job with a decent income that allows you to cover all your bills/expenses/etc. that leaves you with decent play money that you can set on fire if you wish playing poker? If so, you don't really need a BR per se, and you can just play knowing that you can comfortably replenish your roll at any time.

Any more than that really depends on your exact situation. I'm guessing lottsa good winning players have gone on stretches where they've lost ~10 BIs or more. So there's a starting point at what can possibly happen to a good winning player, so plan accordingly for your situation.
