      Well 300BB for FLFR and at least 30BI for SNG and I don't remember for NL but it is in the articles that you have had some success in homegame doesn't matter at all as far as I know.

      BRM is to prevent you from going broke if a bad variance hits you and allow you to climb in levels pretty secure.

      Hey motez,

      For NL cash games it is recommend that you start NL10 (0.05/0.10) playing the SSS when you recieve the $50 starting capital.

      Hello motez,

      I would suggest using our articles and following the specific strategy. Home games are a lot different than online games - and you should never choose your limit according to how good you think you are - but according to bankroll management considerations.

      As such I would start on NL10 (0.05/0.10) with the SSS as TheBu11d0g suggested :)

      Best regards
