Poker Bankroll Calculator

Bankroll Calculator

This poker bankroll calculator allows you to work out which limits you should be playing at in poker depending on how much money you have in your bankroll.

This calculator is based around the rules of basic no limit Texas Holdem bankroll management, which are:

  • You should have at least 20 times the buy in for cash games.
  • You should have at least 40 buy ins for SnG tournaments.

This bankroll calculator will tell you; which limits you should be playing at, how many buyins you have for that level, how much more money you need to win to move up to the next level and advice on how to approach the games at your limit.
