    Hi everyone ... I started playing poker online about 6 months ago occasionally trying to build a bankroll through freerolls because depositing from my location is quite a struggle ... havn't had much success til now ... I was fortunate enough to win 250 from a freeroll,wirked it up to 426 in one day playing 0.10/0.25 omaha zoom ... now that I did I do not know what to do with it I'm afraid to risk it all ... What I need to know Is what's the proper game and stakes I should be playing safely with that kind of bankroll, and also I am an engineering student so I can play 1 hour of poker maximum a day

    thanks in advance

    Hi fyyytu,

    You need to do a search for Bank roll management you will get several suggestions

    A general rule is 40 full buyings for the level you are playing.

    so for 10/25 a full buy in is $25 and a good bank roll is $1000

    The whole idea is protect your self against downswings.
