    Hello djharpo07,

    Welcome to! Please click >HERE< to familiarize yourself with what the site has to offer.

    Judging by your goals, it appears that you are a 'serious' poker player. If that is the case, you are going over what is suggested in the bankroll management article (min. 50 MTT buy-ins). You may want to reconsider your goals in light of this.

    Good luck at the tables!

        Hi djharpo07,

        some nice looking goals

        A $100 bankroll is only 25 buy ins for your chosen game. This does not give you much of a cushion if you hit a bad run.

        for the 180 man games you should be looking at at least 100 buy ins.

        If you decide that the $2.50 180s are nice and soft and you can beat them easy do you have a point when should by chance you bank roll drops too low you will switch games?

        just something to think about,

            Dear djharpo07,

            Have you played a lot of these 180 man games before?

            I would say yes TAP for the first few blind levels is ok but after that you have to open up and steal some or the blinds will eat you up.
