Game stakes and betting structure for each individual game are the most important factors to consider concerning a poker bankroll.
The minimum buy-ins in most poker rooms are ten times the minimum bet, but a general rule of thumb is to never bring less than forty times the minimum bet to the table.
This means that you should for a 2/5 game bring a minimum of $80 and for a 5/10 game bring at least $200.
should be atleast 15 times (300 big bets) your table bankroll in a limit Hold'em game, so you need a minimum of $3000 as a total poker bankroll if you want to play consistently and over a long period of time in 5/10 Hold'em games.
Playing No-Limit poker, you normally want to have at least 10 times the maximum buy in. This means that you would need a total poker bankroll of $2000 if you were to play in a 2/4 No-Limit Hold'em game.
NEVER PLAY WITH MONEY YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO LOSE!
Playing poker with scared money is not a smart thing to do. This is something professional players understands and knows how to take advantage of when they spot a scared fish at the table.
It can at times be really tempting to sit down at a high limit game to have the chance of making some serious money, but it is highly recommended that you only play in games where your total poker bankroll compared to the stakes of the game are compatible.
Being underfunded at the poker table is a bad strategy in many ways and something you will truly regret, when three players are betting like maniacs at the river and you are sitting there with the winning hand but can only collect a small part of the pot, because you ran out of chips at the turn.GOOD LUCK, PLAY WELL AND DON'T GAMBLE WITH YOUR POKER MONEY!
You will also find that the more leeway your poker bankroll gives you, the bigger your psychological edge will be over some of the other players at the table.
