Sod Fixed Limit / Another stretch of Heads-Up STTs looms...

I suffered a rather sick downswing at fixed limit, and from the stats I've gained over the 20 days of play, I simply haven't won enough and was almost solely relying on rakeback. It has showsnthat heads-ups are much more worth my time. Having had a break from them I feel I have recovered from my burn out.

With the FLH I jumped limits a bit fast and wasn't abiding totally by my own rules, so I thought one way to ensure this doesn't happen with my heads-up play is to get some staking. I've employed some strict guidelines that I must abide by else I'll be handing out refunds all over the place.

Starting with a €1200 bankroll (of which I contribute €600, and the backers who contributed the other €600 will get 25% of my profits), this set-up will last for the duration of March. I must abide by these buy-in rules for Heads Up STTs, and the occasional MTT, whilst completely refraining from cash play.

Buy-in.........Required Bankroll:
€10+0.50............Any
€15+0.75...........€200
€20+1................€400
€25+1.25...........€600
€30+1.5.............€900
€40+2...............€1200
€50+2.50.........€1500
€75+3.50..........€2250
€100+4.50.......€3000

Kick-off on March 1st.

You're obviously a winning player but isn't the bankroll requirements a little aggressive?

I'm trying to work out what is the best strategy for me as I currently have around €320 and I'm playing the €5.25 games, which is a bit nitty but I can't afford to reload should it go tits up!

Hey man,

You're right in regards the lower buy-in restriction. I set them quite aggressively on purpose, but they aren't overly bad. Hoping it won't come to being worried about it, as I have pitched the €30+ games at a reasonable bankroll.

I read a good article on 2+2 about buy-ins, and for heads up it said "20 if you're a gambler, 30 standard, 40 if you're conservative)".

So you aren't being too nitty if you can't reload. But 50 buy-ins will always be more than enough with heads up if you are a winning player.
