Default Bankroll: Am I a pussy?

Hi,

at the moment I'm asking myself if I am a pussy. Currently I'm 8 tabling the 109er sngs at party... with a 250 Buyin Bankroll.
I got pretty nice results over the last 2 months (25% ROI - sample size 550 SnGs)

Should I move up, even when I'm feeling uncomfortable with the bigger swings?

no, im pretty sure you are making plenty. Dont fix something when its not broken. You need to play at a level you will be comfortable at.

If you're uncomfortable just stay where you are. Who says you have to move up? Do whatever you want.

But I would put 150 of those buyins in a Bank-roll (as opposed to say a Neteller bankroll) in case they're not already.

No, if you are uncomforatble with bigger swings, don't do it. If you are uncomfortable at a higher level, it probably will affect your game somewhat, which can help get big downswings started in a hurry.

A 25% ROIer at the $109s can't figure out bankroll management, when to move up, and what limit to play?

Mmmm riiiiiiiiiiight.

Thanks for the answers. I think I'll stay at 109er until I get to that point where the higher buyins seems okay with me.

Irieguy, I didn't created this post to talk about my long penis. I'm pretty sure that I can't keep 25% ROI over the long run and because of the fact that I got a 600$/month job the swings at 109 are already huge for me. The point is that I'm absolutely "overbankrolled" and wanted to hear opinions from other players.
