      Hello,

      I received the 50$ starting capital and now i'm at 55$. I understand that the 2% rule is enforced to protect my bankroll and i only play 1$ SnGs right now.

      However, i was not allowed to register to a 1$ regular MTT. Is there a reason for this? It was freezeout.

      Thank you for your assistance.
      Regards,
      Elius

      Hi aeliusch,

      Yes, following a sensible BRM is the best way to retain and build on your bankroll and whilst a guideline, some platforms do have restrictions in place to ensure this is followed.

      Whilst the BRM for cash games is circa 25 to 30BI and SnG's is 50BI, the variance is a lot higher in mtt tournaments and therefore the recommended BI for such tournaments is 100BI. You will therefore need to accumulate $100 before entering these tournaments. There should however be some micro buyin events and even freerolls on most poker platforms.

      Hope this helps, best regards,
