The usual recommendation is 300BB for limit hold'em game. If I'm 2-tabling, should I have 600BB?

Your bankroll requirement for a given risk of ruin does not change when you multi-table as long as the quality of your play does not degrade, so that you have the same win rate and standard deviation on each table.

Also, 300 BB is a dumbed down rule of thumb for the mathematically illiterate, not for professors of chemistry, and it does not always apply. Use these formulas (http://archiveserver.twoplustwo.com/showthreaded.php?Cat=0&amp;Number=207170&amp;page=0&amp;vc=1) to compute your bankroll requirement and risk of ruin.

Thanks--this was handy. I haven't read TOP yet, as I'm just running through the salt mines of the micros as a self-experiment.

Oddly, the last paragraph of your message was missing, as I found it when I quote-replied.

You may have read it while I was still editing. Check it now. I added a couple of other links.

Multitabling just speeds ups time, assuming your EV doesn't degrade. Bankroll and risk are discussed in my July magazine article...
