Default BR for 4-way play

I have a question regarding making the move to 4-way play, and it concerns bankroll. I play limit games.

The rule of thumb I've been going by is, for any given limit, buy in for 25 big bets but keep a bank roll of 500 big bets. This has me buying in a 1/2 game for fifty bucks with 2k in reserve.

Now when I start playing 1/2 4-way, I'll be buying in for fifty bucks four times.

I'm wondering do I need a larger reserve (since I'm now risking two hundred bucks at a time and not fifty)

or

will my two thousand be enough (since I'm still only risking fifty bucks at any one table)?

What's the rule of thumb here?

When multi tabling, you're just getting hands in faster, so you don't really need a bigger bankroll.

2k is plenty for playing 1/2 limit. Look at it this way, you're not really changing your stakes by 4-tabling. In theory you are only speeding up the rate at which your bankroll would have increased or decreased anyway. Of course, this is assuming that playing 4 tables at once will not affect your winrate.

500Big bets is a bit excessive. 300 should be more then enough. also 2k is 1000 big bets. so you are absolutely in the clear for 1/2. Multitablingh will actually decrease your variance so you don't need to up the bankroll.

for 1/2? I understand the need for big buffers at high stakes, but if you are a winning player at 1/2 it is unnecessary. If you are learning to play, that's another matter(or learning to multibable).

unless you plan on goin on a 400 bb downswing at 1/2, 500 bb is really excessive. and if you go on that big of a downswing.. maybe you should play pai gow, not texas hold em.
