I have pretty ridiculously tight bankroll management, mostly because I'm poor, and made a promise to the fiance (got engaged last Thursday, yay me) that I wasn't going to invest any more money in to my poker bankroll. But I've finally gotten my BR to $1000 combined with live and online. I'm pretty happy about that, considering I invested just $60, and haven't ever played over 5K hands in one month.
So I've followed through with my promise to start setting aside money after I hit 1K. My formula is the following: I will take 25% of any monthly profit, and set it aside for a rainy day fund. Granted, in most months when I'm only able to play online, it might be as little as $4 profit, and I only take $1 profit to the rainy day fund. But it's something. No profit, no RDF.
So far, I've got $40. That's not much, but it's great for me mentally. I feel like I've finally accomplished one of my major poker goals.
