Hi everybody, first time poster...

A friend has told me that I shouldn't play limit if my bankroll doesn't have 300 big bets at that limit...and mentioned something about a Risk of Ruin formula. Could somebody give me the formula and an explanation for both limit and sit and gos? Thanks!

has a good discussion of ROR.

you'll need to estimate your own win rate and SD per hand to use the formulas there.

6 SB per hand, though, is a typical SD is holdem.
