          I hope that you realize that per bankroll management, you shouldn't be playing these until you have $150 in your bankroll. to be in a tourney and be properly bankrolled for it, a player needs 100 buy-ins in their bankroll.

                          I don't think you have a downswing. When you hit one, you will bust your banrkoll with these management.

                            I have to agree with John and Rogger. Playing HU with a small bankroll is a recipe for disaster. A totally normal downswing will bust you. I'd play something with much lower variance if I were you.

                              I disagree, there's nothing wrong with taking shots so long as it doesn't affect your life roll. Never risk what you can't afford to lose but if the money doesn't mean anything and you can redeposit then it's fine. As long as you keep records and treat the money as entertainment then I don't see any harm - and the chance to turn it into something big.

                              Where bankroll should matter is when the money means something to you. I'm certainly not working to the 100 buy in rule for my challenge but I will work to it if I can turn it into something serious.
