Use SW to Practice
There isn't a simple answer since you have to factor in your betting schedule and tolerable Risk-of-Ruin to determine your EV, SD, and required Bankroll. If you're a beginner, flat betting 8D is a rough and potentially costly way to get experience. If I were you, I would use software like CVBJ and CVCX to practice, generate stats, and compare various game, betting, bankroll, and ruin scenarios. You 'll spend less money and get more practice than you would trying to get the same learning in real games. That doesn't mean to avoid real games completely, it just says (like MoldedTruth's response to you) you should focus on books and practice if you consider yourself a beginner.
