  • Need BRM Advice

    Ok so these new buy-in obligations are starting to hit me every single day and i'm not sure what i should do.
    My br is only at $10 for 2nl zoom and i'm hitting the obligations within an hour or 2 of play. I sit with the min $1 my brm is to leave with +50% of sit down so i leave at $1.50 but after a couple hours the bio's are hitting me and so far every time i sit with this higher amount i lose it within 30 minutes. sometimes it's my fault and sometimes it's jst bad beats.

    So the advice i need is how to deal with this. Should i be stepping out of my brm in order to play or should i be sticking with it until i build up my roll?

    I really don't know what to do guys because my br is jst floating because of this but to go 20 hours without any play not only costs me progression but it would hinder my chances of earning the required vpp's for the top level prizes in the premier league.

    Any advice guys?

    Honestly.. go back to playing freerolls or small buy-in tourneys until you build up enough of a bankroll to play it. You want to be sitting with the max and if you lose it, you do not want it to effect the way you play.

    don't worry about the vpp's... if you can't get them within BRM, then don't do it. You want to be building your bankroll and you should never chase vpp's if it is a negative to your roll.

      I've done the whole freeroll bit. it's how i got my roll to start with. I've stopped playing tournaments (apart from the prem league and 100k freerolls) and no STT's in order to focus on my cash game and start making the vpp's. My total roll is $20.
      Honestly i'm a short stack player. I've never been a full stack player and these bio's are strangling me play wise. it's so unfair. but tbh it's not having a fully negative impact on my roll. it's increasing slightly but no-where near as much as it should be.
      I start the day off normally strong and the downswing tends ti hit after the bio's hit.
      The very reason i'm chasing the vpp's is to increase my roll with prem prize money.

      I'm just stuck really. So annoying since i have a month to really focus on nothing but poker and get myself off the bottom rung.
