      According to the Bankroll Management article, you can move to $0.10/0.25 limit with a minimum of $150 at your bankroll.

      At Mansion Poker the levels after $0.05/0.10 are $0.10/0.15 or $0.15/0.25.

      Is $150 a proper bankroll for going up to $0.15/0.25?

      i played very little at 0.05/0.10... i suggest to skip that and go directly at 0.10/0.15, and after that at 0.15/0.25. but maybe some more experienced players have other opinions..


      LE : I have a other question about SSS. it's preatty much about betting preflop,and flop. when you bet the flop, usually you should be all in... This is the reason i don't like it: it's like throwing a dice ,where you win if hit 3 or higher... i know...long term it's profitably, but it's not the way for good players i think...not for long time anyway.

      Actually I didn't like the play at 0.10/0.15. SB needs only 0.05 to complete and limp in (1/3 of BB) and I think they tend to complete more often than in 0.05/0.10 (which is then 1/2 of BB to complete in order to limp in) and as a result there are often more players in the pot.

      I tried it for a very short while and returned to 0.05/0.10. With a solid game it took me something like 3 weeks (more or less) to get a bankroll of $150. I play around 5 hours per day, 700 - 800 hands per day multitabling at 4 tables.

      I played now more then 15K hands at this level and built a bankroll of $150, so I want to know if it is OK to go up to 0.15/0.25.

      Did you recieve 100$ bonus? As far as I know it is supposed that you have one, otherwise bankroll for moving up should be 250$ = 50 buy-ins.

      Btw, I also haven`t played on NL 15. didn`t like it and moved back to NL 10$

      I played like the bankroll said. Went to the $0,15/$0,25 table after reaching $150. If I keep having the "luck" I have now, I'll probably come back down to that limit soon...

      According to the "Shortstack Strategy: Bankroll management" article (http://www.pokerstrategy.com/strategy/no-limit/219/2/) with $150 you can move up to $0.10/0.25. The article doesn't mention 50 buy-ins.

      And no, I didn't receive 100$ bonus yet. I don't even remember when I am supposed to get it. I think only after I got around 2000 or 2200 Strategy Points.

      Well, this article assumes that you have additional 100$ bonus. I strongly recommend you to stay at NL 10$ untill you have 250$=50 buy-ins. I had -100$ swing on NL 25$ myself)

      OK xylere, thank you very much.

      I needed this clarification.

      Continue the good work you are doing, personally I am learning a lot from you

      Good luck

      Does multitabling (3 - 4 tables) influence the bankroll management?

      no it doesn't, but it kinda should because IMO you'll have higher variance if you play 15 tables (1000 hands/hour) than 4 tables (250 hands/hour)

      but when you become experienced enough to handle 12+ tables and also experience some downswings you'll adapt your BRM the way you feel comfortable (40-50 BI)

      As it is said in articles 30BI is absolute minimum for SSS.
