      Hey bubu29,

      I play nl50 and nl100 cap at the moment, but I think variance should be similar on higher stakes.

      I would suggest to have a 100BI bankroll minimum for cap games. I find it quite easily possible to have 10-20BI swings in a session and around 50BI was my highest variation from the EV overall. I have a 200k+ hands sample.

      I would also suggest you check the "run it twice" option which can help with variance a little bit.

      I believe you should be fine on 1/2 and 2/4 with 15k roll as long as you don't lose it. :)

      Cheers,
