      Urmo is a good player, he can manage playing with 10 BI rule at the lower stakes.

      where does this idea come from? You don't keep a big roll to compensate for lack of skills, you do it to protect against variance (pure luck - it happens to everyone). 10BI isn't enough for the best of players.
      Anyway, people usually realize this only when they're broke (I know I did), but at least I can say I told you so :P
      (btw i'm not just talking to timukasr, but to anyone who thinks variance isn't a big deal)

      I now that 10 buy in isn't enough,but I think when i can easily deposit more,then it's not a problem.I play only nl 25 with 10 buy in.
      Okey yesterday i didn't play very well,I made mistakes and i wasen't focused to poker.
      I put up my this week goals to :
      * Play least 6 k hands
      *Br:400 $
      *Watch least one FR nl 25 video
      *Post some hands
