Default Bankroll question

Okay i started with 100 lost all of it playing mostly .2.4c no limit.

I find that there really isnt much poker being played meaning people hold out for large hands because they dont have anything to lose (calling with rags but hoping to get a flush and or straight) and when you get a hand and raise they just fold. So maybe the only way to play the bottom limits is to look for the flushes straights and sets and hold back on the pairs.

I am going to reload another 100. This time i can either focus on playing this way or moving up 10 .5/.10 which is 10 max buy in. I could buyin for 6 and have less than 17 buyins which would be close to the bankroll management requirements. Or i could play less and maxc buy with only 10 full buy ins.

Or i could go the sit and go route ........... I dont know

That's a very bad way to adjust. You just need to learn hand reading and adjusting to the player. You just need to learn poker. You're in the right place for that!

How long have you been playing?

I would suggest you stick to 5NL for now. Waiting for the nuts is pretty unprofitable as wierd as that sounds to you now.

I dont think its wise to reload to play 10nl and buy in for 6 bucks to meet bankroll requirements. That is a losing situation IMO and not realistic bankroll managment. You want to count in full buy ins, you cant have 17-$6 buyins for 10nl..your just kidding yourself. You need to find a limit you are comfortable with and stay there. I suggest watching all 10/20nl microstakes vids here. I dont think your problem is the players calling with rags looking for the flush or straight..those are the fish you want in the hand with you..and if they fold thats even better!

good luck
