      Hi,
      I got my $50 and have cashed in a $1 SnG and now have $52. My question is, if I play and lose a few more and I have, say, $47 in my account, Do I still play $1 SnG's or do I drop down to the $.50 ones, as I will not have 50 buyins for the $1.
      I have looked in strategy but can't find the answer; it seems easy to slip down from $47 to $40 and so on, so what is the cut-off point when you have to move down.
      Any help is much appreciated.
      Regards

      I'd advise u to move down if u go below 45$ and then move back up again when u reach 55$. This way the grind back to the 1$s won't be too long and u'll always have a feeling of a secure bankroll.

      Thank you for your response Atoks.
      Just to double check, you mean move up from the lower buy-in SnG, right? Not from $1 to $2 at $55? I am sure you mean move up from the lower buyin, but I'd rather double check :)

      P.S what you said about move down at $45 makes sense and I'm now ready to go!

      Totally agree with Atoks.

      He means move back up to $1 sng's at $55 BR, you really need 50x buy ins at each level so you'd need to grow your BR to at least $100 to move up to $2 sngs.

      Welcome to the forum pwned94, wishing you every success and enjoyment in your poker.

      Best regards,
