      Its soon february and I would like to start a new BR up, but this time I really want to follow my BR 100% so I know what to play and what not to play.

      I am looking for advice BR vs Variance, in the different sizes of SnG MTTs and MTTs
      Is there a way to calculate that?

      I have been thinking about something like this with a $100.

      MTTs SnGs
      $0.50 45 man Turbo (100 BIs) ($50)
      $0.50 90 man Turbo (150 BIs) (>$75)
      $0.50 180 man Turbo 200BIs? (>$100)
      $0.50 360 man 300BIs? (>$150)
      $1 45 Man (100BIs) (>$100)
      $1 90 Man Turbo (150BIs) (>$150)
      $1 180 Man (200BIs) (>$200)
      $1 360 man 300BIs or is this to conservative? (>$300)

      Big fields 1000+ 200BIs? or would 150 BIs be good?
      $0.55 The Big (around 3500 players) How many BIs?
      $0.55 The Hot
      $1.10 Turbo 6 Max (around 1250 players) How many BIs?
      $1.10 The Hot (more than 4K players) How many BIs?

      How can I calculate, which Tournaments to play? I dont think that 1% of BR is okay comparing small fields <1000 vs large fields >1000

      How does my chart look like at $0.50>$1 BI level?

      Looking forward for good answers, and can't wait to start up again from the bottom, and on my twitch channel

      Hello Immanueldk

      Your BRM seems to be good, but there aren’t any $1 360 mans SNG’s on PokerStars. There are only 10c or 50c of these variant or I missed the $1 games.

      I would use for the 1k+ MTT fields what you are planning to play a bankroll of at least 300 buy-inns to kill the swings that you can have in those games. Especially in the turbo and hyper MTT’s the swings could be huge.
