Default Ye Olde Bankroll question

It seems the consensus is that a safe starting bankroll should be about 50 buy-ins. Assuming 10+1 play, thats $550.

Would it matter much if you single-table or multi-table the tens? Is a starting BR of 50 buy-ins enough for someone who wants to 4-table?

You want a big enough roll so that you don't care about the money you lost when you finish 4th.

your BR is not dependant upon the time it takes you to execute said 50 buy-ins...it's mearly a bench-mark to handle the down swings.

now if you find you cannot beat your intended level, you'll find the amount of time you were able to enjoy your $550 far shorter 4-tabling than 1-tabling.

good luck!

I would say 30 buyins is fine for someone who isn't playing for a living. It's like this, if you play substantially worse at 4 tables at a time compared to 1 table at a time then yes, you need more bankroll. If you're like me and you can play 4 tables better than or at least as well as you 1 table, you're fine with a reasonable bankroll. I find it easier to play better poker with 4 tables running than 1. With 1 table I tend to get bored and try to run some Fancy Plays and stuff. 4 tabling I'm a machine who very rarely feels tempted to do something dumb or tricky.

If I was 1 tabling and trying my absolute hardest, I would feel just fine with a 10 buyin bankroll, as long as going completely broke wasn't the end of the world. Right now I like to maintain a 50 buyin bankroll for morale reasons. Dropping 10 buyins is no problem if you have 40 more behind.

PS I'm DRUNK SON.
