      Of course.
      The only problem will be if you start to play some bigger limits without being ready for them.

      Every bankroll boost is welcome in my account :D

      Well it depends on the way you look at these winnings.
      Me,Im withdrawing money from my BR often to cover my life expenses, then I'm depositing back as soon as I get some money,so in a wicked way, my real life and poker bankroll are connected

      Me personally, i keep them seperate within reason. If you are playing small buy-in home games, whatever winning i get, i keep 2 enteries aside and use that money in my day to day life, mainly cause it wasn't a lot, and it was just a small game with friends. Casino and online winnings are different, i don't touch them cause i want to keep my bankroll going.

      My only concern with it would be like what kukkiwonBG said. When you move up a level online, would you be ready for it? Same goes the other way for live play.

      Also, if you where to have a bad run and loose a lot, what else have you got for you live games?

      At the end of the day, its copmletly your descision. The thing that i like that we have at our casino (others probably have it too) is that after i finish playing, i put it on my club card. So i can't touch it without going back to the casino, but it also means that i have some money, that i know my wife and myself aren't needing to worry about. That way, provided i keep my head and play well, and grind it out to build it up, she is happy. One day when it gets to a certain point, i will withdraw a chunk of it to use for something, but that days still a while off :) !!!

      Good luck with it.
