online or offline or both? Poker income or non-poker income? –  TacticalCoder Jan 11 '12 at 1:41

The two most well known database management tools are PokerTracker (I have this one) and Holdem Manager.

Both are very good, but I prefer PT's extensibilty using PostgreSQL.

Also, evplusplus have other useful things, like a Risk of Ruin calculator, Winrate Confidence calculator and bankroll management simulator that I've used extensively to model how I manage my money.

I've also used them to simulate other volatility scenarios on horse racing and sports betting that I use in my other gambling pursuits. It's very adaptable.

If you know your winrate and your standard deviation information you should be able to estimate your bankroll requirements by looking at the ev++ variance calculator. You'll see a good amount of information here about longest breakeven and downswings and other winrate related estimates: http://www.evplusplus.com/poker_tools/variance_simulator/

For tournaments you may want to look at this blog post: http://www.nsdpoker.com/2011/01/mtt-pros/
