      Hi,

      I'm thinking of (partly) switching to 6max Sit n go's. Therefor I need to think of a solid bankroll management. I'm thinking of playing on Stars and iPoker, might add a few rooms for easy mid-high stakes games later.

      Anyway, here's what I got:

      iPoker DoN 6max

      Stake - BI left for prev. stake - Roll
      $1.20 - 0 - $0
      $2.40 - 10 - $12
      $5.50 - 12 - $28.80
      $11 - 15 - $82.50
      $22 - 15 - $165
      $33 - 18 - $396
      $55 - 20 - $660
      $109 - 25 - $1375
      $215 - 30 - $3270
      $320 - 35 - $7525


      iPoker normal 6max (70-30)

      Stake - BI left for prev. stake - Roll
      $1.20 - 0 - $0
      $2.40 - 20 - $24
      $5.50 - 24 - $57.60
      $11 - 30- $165
      $22 - 30 - $330
      $33 - 36 - $792
      $55 - 40 - $1320
      $109 - 50 - $2750
      $215 - 60 - $6540
      $320 - 70 - $15050

      PokerStars normal 6max (70-30)

      Stake - BI left for prev. stake - Roll
      $1.50 - 0 - $0
      $3.50 - 40 - $60
      $7 - 50 - $175
      $15 - 60 - $420
      $30 - 80 - $1200
      $60 - 100 - $3000
      $100 - 110 - $6600
      $200 - 120 - $12000

      So to play 1 game of $2.40 DoN on iPoker, you need $14.40 roll.
      Would this bankroll management be too loose? Of course, this is just for the Turbo games. I don't play the nonturbo ones and when I do, I will use the same BRM, if I'll play Super Turbo games, I'll use a tighter BRM, about 2-3x this BRM.

      If you play many tables in one moment (more than 6-9 , i think) -- you must think about cases, in where you lose all tables in you sessions - troubles with computer or internet, for examlpe.

      And there is one more problem - psychological.
      Can you demonstrate your A-game, if you lose 1/3 of your bankroll in one session?

      If yes, i think there is so optimal.


      PS. And generally, if we know our ROI on limit, we can compute probablities of some stricks.
      It is better, i think, because your numbers are wrong, if man have little, near-zero ROI.

      PPS. My English is so bad, sorry

      Thanks for your reply.
      I agree that you can always take a tighter BRM if you are less capable of handling swings.

      And I agree that your BRM should be decided based on your ROI, but I don't have those stats yet.

      dunno about DoN, but turbo 6-max SnG you should probably use a tighter BRM? They have fairly huge swings and 50 Bi downswing is not too uncommon.
