      Hey all,

      Thought that i would let you guys grab them if you want to.
      Basically, i have set up the BRM structures into chart form, so that it is easy to read and follow.
      I have created 3 charts.
      1. Limit Hold'em
      2. No Limit SSS structure
      3. No Limit BSS structure.

      You can download the word document at the following address.
      [URL=http://members.iinet.net.au/~dgenx/poker/]http://members.iinet.net.au/~dgenx/poker/[/URL]

      If anyone wants to "pretty" them up, feel free.
      I did it just to make it easier to follow correct BRM according to the Poker Strategy articles.

      If there are errors, please let me know.

      Regards
      Andrew

      I may have question? Why do you have for BSS strategy 50 BI rule?
      PS suggests 20BI (FR) or 25 (SH).

      Also for FL starting $1/$2 the 500 BB would be more appropriate, and also for SH 500 BB recommended by articles.

      I think sss is more swingy hence 50 stacks for that and 30 for bss.

      All the numbers i put in were just based on what PS said in their articles.

      In the BSS Bankroll management Bronze article, it said to have 20 Buy-ins availble, but they recommened 50. The 20 was absolute minimum. So i just based my charts on the 50 as it was recommended.

      As for the FL $1/$2, once again, PS recommended 300BB's, so that is why i put it in there.

      If you can use them, but want to change them, feel free.

      I can't say anything about NL, but there's something important about FL:

      There're hardly any 1/2+ FL fullring tables available, so you have to change BRM to min. 500BB at 1/2 and to ~1000BB at 10/20+

      $10,000 can be average daily swing at 50/100, so $30k bankroll is sin...

      While i think of it also, the limits where based on Titan's games, so i guess the rest of iPoker as well.

      As for whether the tables are SH or FR, i am not sure. I just did them as a basic starting point as to what they say your bankroll should be.

      Hell, my bankroll aint even up for me to hit the .10/.20 tables yet!!!!

      But i appriciate the feedback. Hopefully a definitive set of charts can be made one day.

      while Titan do offer them, there appears to be only a few levels that seem to get players playing FL, the $3/$6 limit has a few FR's going, but the 1/2 and the 2/4 seem to be going strong.

      as for the 50/100 swings, i was not aware of that. So do you think it should be more a sliding scale the higher the limits? Like 300BB for .50/1 and below and then like you said, 500BB for 1/2 through 5/10, and 1000BB for 10/20 and above.

      500 BB is minimum for SH (the 95% of games at 1/2+)..

      so this is what I suggest:

      0.02/0.04 - 0.5/1 (FR): 300 BB minimum
      1/2 - 5/10 (SH only): 500 BB+
      10/20+ : 1000 BB+

      You can start with SH sooner if you wish, so it can be 500 BB+ even as low as on 0.02/0.04..

      I didn't play so high, so i can't tell you how swingy it's there.. (I prefer a bit more conservative BR at the limits I play like the mentioned above, but as said: it's minimum probably)
