    What should I do now? Help please.

    Before yesterdays carbon 1pm freeroll I had 5 cents in my account. Right now i currently have 58.88. As many of you know yesterday I won b2b in the 1pm and 4pm freeroll, I also won The Nutz Poker Forums $10 freeroll ( $4 for 1st place ) I also won a $2.20 entry bagudi tournament in which i won about 30 bucks or so.

    Here is my issue. I've rolled up between 50 and 100 dollars before on carbon, but my issue is that i never seem to be able to build a big bankroll. I have problems taking shots in high paying MMTs. Idon't think im a great cash game player, within the first hour im generally up, but then its easy for me to tilt and with cash at a table i can be reckless.

    My question is what is a good way i should go about building my bankroll safely? Any bankroll management ideas are welcomed and needed.

    I highly recommend sticking to MTT's and running 3-4 at the same time. I would pick a few tournaments that start close to each other, that are probably between $3-$6 entry fee each, and join a few of them. Having more than one going at once will keep you sharp and typically will keep you safe. You won't have time to make the typical idiot, "why the heck did I call that" decision this way.

    Just my two cents. Good luck!

    Bankroll on paper is easy, Never buy in with more than 5 percent of your total bankroll, if your good, your 5 percents will add up fast, and your loses are minimal. NOW FOLLOWING THAT IS THE HARD PART.

    standard BRM is 2% of your br for tourneys and 5% for cashgames so if you follow those rules you should be fine

    play the 2.20 bounties the 1.10 GTD that are not rebuys and the 5.50 2k GTD that is at night. Don't know how your sng game is, but I like the super turbo 2.12 and 5.50.

    18:07 <gimmeabrew> @jayyy27: sorry
