    Hi mate, i am not quite sure on the question,but i think you are on about how big should your bankroll be to try to make a profit at nlhe.

    The answer is that profit is not made by the size of your bankroll but by your abilities as a player.

    The recommended buyin amount is a 100 buyin bankroll, so an example would be at 1c 2c nlhe a $80 bankroll. 100 x 80cents min buyin. I think as for the links you were looking for, the information can be found in one off the top tabs. There is probably a video on it.

    hope this helps and if I'm wrong on the question my apologies.

        The number of buy in's you "need" to keep in action through down swings varies by the type of style you play. The tighter you will tend to be, the lower your BR requirements will be to avoid going bust.

        A good rule of thumb would be somewhere between 30 and 60 BI for a given NLHE cash game level.

        You should note though, BR management is NOT going to "protect" you from going broke if your skills in all facets of poker are not yet great enough to allow you to show profitability. all BR management techniques can help do is keep you in action LONGER so you might acquire the skills to be a winning player, assuming you do not have them yet.

        Hope it helps.
