      You can see the standard deviation in HEM or PT.

      For needed buyins, you need to realize that the mathematical requirements are whole different what your mental requirements are. For someone, mathematical BRM is 20 buyins. But if your bankroll is 20bin, and you lose 15 of them in one session, that is going to affect your playing for sure.

      I would say that your bankroll is pretty good if 10bin losing streak in 1-2 sessions doesn't make you worried about the rest of your bankroll.

      Someone likes to have 50bin, someone has 30bin. And someone might have 100bin. I have 18,7bin atm.
