Explanation of BRM

The poker term “BRM” is simply an acronym for bankroll management. Bankroll management is the discipline of apportioning poker capital into chunks in an attempt to minimize risk of ruin (chances of going broke).

For example, a cash game player might elect to play a certain limit only when he has 25 buyins for that limit in his bankroll.

Example of BRM used in a sentence -> The goal of good BRM is to strike a balance between playing in games with stakes that are too big for our bankroll and games where stakes are too small for our bankroll.
