CHAPTER 3 – Bankroll Management! An Important Rule you Must Know


One of the biggest problems many players face when playing Sit&Go’s is that they will play tournaments to high for their bankroll. This can cause you to lose all your money quickly and go on tilt. A general rule of thumb is to have a bankroll of roughly 20-30 times the Sit&Go buy-in amount. I have made a simple chart below, which you can print off and use over and over again. It has helped me greatly.

Lots of poker players throw bankroll management out the door and don’t believe in it. I got news for them, YOU NEED TO START BELIEVING, and in a HURRY!



Move up or down a level as your bankroll allows. If you are losing, move down in buy-in level and if you continue to win move up. Use good judgment and take action quickly. If you wait to long you will lose, all of it! Also play at a meaningful money level to you. This means that the buy-in amount should be at ease, as well as challenging. Not so low that a loss is ignored. Nor so high that you are perspiring the entire game!
