Hey Wilt. I've been playing with the bankroll simulator and I wonder if having a large relative bankroll (# BIs) can be detrimental to your poker success at the low to midstakes.
Assuming you have good tilt control and you are a winning player (both substantial assumptions), having a 1kBB (lhe player) restriction means moving up is very slow. However, if you have a 500BB/level restriction allows you to move up quickly and make more money. I was just leaving it at the 1BB WR and 20BB SD. In fact, it even looks reasonable to have a 300BB BR and just be very willing to move down.
Would you say that a willingness to drop down would counteract a lot of the need for a larger bankroll, especially for a recreational player? I have seen similar things posted on 2p2 in the LHE forums advocating 300BB BRs (or less) for 6max as a way to optimally grow your BR, basically solved for from the Kelly Criterion using either the 1/2 or quarter kelly.
Of course, once you make it to the high stakes, you should then have a large bankroll in order to prevent yourself from needing to move down.
A similar thing happens when I try NL numbers (though I am not really a NL player). I would compare 20Bi to 50Bi and you'll see that you can grow a BR much faster with 20Bis and you can't really go broke as long as you're willing to move down. Tilt control obv. makes this key.
I guess I'm asking basically, if I have good tilt control, independent of the money, would you recommend I use a small BR?
