Clarifications:

– For Double or Nothing SNGs, use the HU guidelines.

– For MTTs with less than 150 players, use the 90-man guidelines.

– If your favorite game is not found on here, simply multiply the buyin by 40 for HU, 50 for FTP’s Matrix SNGs, 65 for STTs, 90 for 18-20 man, 108 for 27-man, 128 for 45-man, 150 for 90-man, or 200 for 180-man or MTTs and add it to the list!

– I will be crossposting this on my blog here so if you ever want to reference this, that’s the easiest place to find it!

– These buyin recommendations are very conservative and are intended to ensure that you make consistent money while your risk of ruin is extremely minimal.  It is made for professional players who cannot afford to replenish their bankroll.  Recreational players may feel free to cut these recommendations in half.

– Satellites for must-play tournaments should only be played if you have enough in your bankroll for the target tournament, and you have an edge in that target event.

– If you are feeling good, don’t play too far away from your highest allowable game.  For instance, if your bankroll allows you to play $22 SNGs and you are playing $11 SNGs, you are not allowing yourself to make enough money.
