    Hi becar1989! Welcome to the forum. Here are the guidelines that I try to stick to (others will use different numbers, but these are what I stick to) MTT: no tourney more than 1/100th of my bankroll. For you currently, that would put you in the 25 cent to 50 cent range cash tables: nothing where the max buy-in is over 1/25th of my bankroll For your bankroll currently, I'd play tables where I could buy-in for $2. I always try to buy-into a table for the max amount too. S&G: no tourney more than 1/50th of my bankroll For your bankroll currently, $1 tourneys. I do this to account for any variance runs that will eventually happen to me. The other thing you want to do is that if you're doing well at a given type of tourney or level of a cash table, keep with them as you build your bankroll, but be ready to go to a lower amount if your bankroll starts to go down, due to a variance swing. Also, here is a link that was put together for new members to help explain the various items you can take advantage of on the site. Good luck at the tablesumbup: John

      My noobish advice is to stay on limit holdem(if we are talking about fixed limit(didn't try pot limit) ),while I was on fixed limit I always had a profit,slowly but surely and there is too much loose players. Since I switched to NL2 I firstly gone into minus and keep going deeper and deeper and now I'm on around -40$ since I am on NL...If you are doing good on FL don't get greedy,just stay where you are!...Playing TAG on FL
      Good luck!
