Looking forward on the headsup.turbo video, i was always interested to learn more about this type of game but never could find good strategy videos....

Make sure to post the link to that vid once you upload it here in your thread Smile

Greg offers: The following principle is key to becoming a successful poker player. Without the proper money management skills, the best players in the world would go broke. For all you skim-readers, here are the basic rules of bankroll management for Texas Hold'em.

20 buyins for NL Hold'em.
300 big blinds for Limit Hold'em.
40 buyins for SnG Tournaments.

What is bankroll management?

"Bankroll management" (sometimes abbreviated to BRM) is where you play at certain limits to avoid losing all of your bankroll due to bad runs of cards, which any poker player must expect from time to time.

This is called "playing within your bankroll". Subsequently, if you play at higher limits where there is too great a chance of losing all of your poker money, you are "playing out of your bankroll".

Why is bankroll management important?

The reason why you should choose your limits carefully in poker is due to the variance. Variance is a term used to describe the "ups and downs" of poker where you fluctuate from having bad runs of cards to good runs of cards, resulting in varying profits and losses.

If you play poker for long enough there are going to be periods of time where you will consistently lose money, not because you are playing badly, but because the cards are not falling your way. This means that if you do not have enough money in your bankroll to absorb these big downswings, it is likely that you will lose it all.

Every player, irrespective of ability, will experience variance in their game. Bankroll management is in place to deal with this variance and allow you to continue playing without going broke.

Therefore every time we sit down at the poker table, whether it be live or online, we want to give ourselves the best opportunity to win a maximum amount of profit whilst keeping the risk of going broke minimal. This is where the rules of bankroll management come into play.

So what limits should I be playing at?

Cash games.

Pot limit and no limit Hold'em.

If you are playing pot limit or no limit poker, the safe recommended size of your bankroll is 20 times the full buy-in of where you want to play. This means that if you want to have the best chance of making money at a $1/$2 game where the maximum buy-in is $200, you should have a bankroll of at least $4000.

Another way of applying bankroll management is by only putting a maximum 5% of your entire bankroll on the table at any one time, which works out the same as having 20 times the buy-in for the game.

Limit Hold'em.

If you like to play limit Holdem however, you should have 300 Big Bets as a minimum for the limit you wish to play at. Therefore to play $1/$2 limit Holdem, you should have a bankroll of at least $600.

Tournament games.

It is recommended that you have a bankroll that will give you 40 buy-ins to the level of tournaments that you wish to play at. Therefore if you want to play at the $10+$1 Sit n Go's you should have a bankroll of $440.

The guidelines noted above are very general rules that should give you the best opportunity to make money from playing Texas Holdem poker without going broke. However there are going to be some exceptions and alterations depending on how and where you play.

Bankroll management for pro players.

If you intend on taking poker up as your main source of income, the bankroll you would require will be substantially larger than 20 full buy-ins for cash, or 40 buy-ins for tournaments. This is because your living expenses will constantly be taken out of your bankroll and so it has to have the ability to withstand the variance along with the costs of everyday life. edit- pro players need a much larger roll then set out here.

If you are constantly dipping into your bankroll to pay for bills and groceries, you may find that occassionally you will not be properly rolled for the limits you are playing at. Furthermore, there may well be times of emergency when you will need to take a big chunk out of your roll, and so it's good to have a little extra money behind you just in case.

Bankroll management at short-handed tables.

If you play at shorthanded tables, you may notice that there is greater variance than at full ring games. The fact that you will be involved in a greater number of pots per orbit and playing against your opponent's weaknesses more than to your cards strengths will result in greater fluctuations in wins and losses over short periods of time. This means that you may consider slightly increasing your bankroll up a few buy-ins if you want to withstand the variance of these games.

Style of play and variance.

Your playing style can also determine what limits you should play in relation to the size of your bankroll. If you are a tight player then you should expect to receive a slightly reduced variance to that of a loose player, therefore you may be able to afford to reduce the amount of buy-ins in your bankroll.

This is because tight players will often only enter pots with strong hands and regularly go to showdowns with winnings hands, thus reducing the chances of seeing big losses. Consequently, if you are a loose player and play a large number of pots, you may want to increase the size of your bankroll to absorb the extra variance you may receive.

Loose players who play a large percentage of hands will experience more variance than tight players who play a low percentage of hands.

Absorbing losses and moving on.

Good bankroll management helps you deal with the psychological impact that losses can have on your game. If you have a bankroll of 10 full buy-ins for a cash game at the $200 NL game and lose 4 buy ins, your bankroll would deplete from $2000 to $1200. Thanks to your small initial bankroll this looks like a big loss and may cause you to tighten up your game and play "scared poker" because you are afraid to lose more money.

Now if you had 20 full buy-ins for the $1/$2 game, your bankroll would change from $4000 to $3200. Immediately you can see that visually this does not look as bad as the loss in the first instance. Therefore you will feel more comfortable that you have the ability to win back the lost money without feeling the need to change your game.

Moving levels and taking shots.

There will be times when you have bad runs of cards and good runs of cards. At certain times your bankroll will be too small or too big for the limits you are playing at.

If your bankroll drops below 20 full buy-ins, then you should also drop down a level so that you are playing within your bankroll until you have built it back up enough to play at the next level.
If you have more than 20 buy ins for the limit above, then it makes sense to move up to that limit if you feel you can beat it. Just be sure to drop back down to the lower limit if you experience significant losses.
At some points in your poker career you may fancy moving up a level just to test it out and to see how well you do. This is called ‘taking a shot’. There is no harm in trying this as long as you stick to good bankroll management for most of the time you play poker.

Be careful not to get carried away by big wins at the higher level because your bankroll may still be too small to support continued play there. A useful tactic that you can use when ‘taking a shot’ is to not buy in for the full amount at the next level up. This way you will not be risking too much of your bankroll in any one game and you are essentially still playing within your bankroll if you do not put more than 5% of it on the table.

Bankroll management evaluation.

If you intend to make money from playing poker, it is essential that you exercise good bankroll management skills. If you do not then you are setting yourself up for frequent losses that you will find hard to prevent, no matter how good you may be at poker. Once again, the safe bankroll requirements to remember are:

NL Holdem Cash: 20 buy-ins
Limit Holdem Cash: 300 Big Bets
Tournaments: 40 buy-ins

It should be noted that if you are a losing poker player, bankroll management is not going to help you win money. The guidelines mentioned above will only apply if you know that you are a winning poker player in the long run.


I found this article on a site that has poker ads on it but the site creator offers all his advice freely to help all poker players so i hope he doesnt mind it being posted here.

Personally i agree with all this stuff 99.9999% I used to deposit onto stars and my first few sessions were up because i was hungry to win but scared to lose and go broke. I played good tight poker and built up some steam. Thinking i was good enough i would move up in stakes. Most times i would go in ahead but no matter what my attempts at those 55$ sng's on stars (heh like winning one would change a thing) would end in me losing and likely tilting off the rest of my stack playing cynical poker. Even if there were times when i didnt play above my head i would play too much or too loosely because i wasnt so appreciative as i once was for even playing. How could i stop my bad habits? i feel like i could win at poker and i have before but never when it matters. Thats when i started reading and watching more poker theory. I learned a bit about bankroll management and tried again. I got higher then i ever did before but then sadly tried 25/50cent limit and after a initial profit lost it all over a short span. Life was a bit chaotic at the time and i had no time to play poker or the mind frame to suffer beats and keep on so i stopped. Getting a email from bankrollmob and noticing i was itching to play poker as i read it. i decided i would try again but with more effort towards the "management" side of poker as opposed to thinking i was just some natural who could kill anything if i tried. Success takes practice or study or training. I recommend "outliers" by malcolm gladwell as proof of practice paying off. No matter what if you play within ur roll the beats sting less. You may even find yourself having fun Blink

Stoppred reading the article when I saw the suggested BRM guidelines Big Smile those will destroy your BR once you hit the first "real" downswing.
Is it an older article? Because all older articles,even from today respected pros,have these way too aggressive BRM rules. In the case of SNGs it should also be mentioned what kind of SNG he is talking about. While 40BIs for HU is enough (unless u play hyper HUs),it would be pure BR suicide in multitable SNGs

Yes this article is the kind of miss-information I would stay away from. I mean you may be able to make these numbers work for you. I'd say the numbers are way too low. As a general rule I try not to risk more than 5% of my BR. Unless I'm taking a shot, & it's just that you're taking a shot if you don't win you should think about maybe moving down even lower to build a bigger roll in order to absorb the swings.

I agree with both of you. I myself thought the same thing and i guess because personally i dont want to deposit again baring a real crazy long term downswing i listened to bemy when he gave advice on brm in an earlier thread.

I just thought having something as a guideline posted could help others down at least the right path.


That aside i am 2/2 in tournaments with a 3rd in the 1k 3$ game and a not as impressive 18th in the $300 gtd dazzler. Im currently running well in the 3k event also but am shutting her down after that tonight.


------------
oh almost forgot. i rendered and uploaded that video while i was out and about today. So here is a hu 4 player shootout... well the final table anyways.



sorry for the mic feedback. I played this guy pretty aggressive in the sense i appeared to be always raising but i never once put myself at risk or called to his aggression.

------------
Poker really can be fun. I had been playing everything lately and was steadily losing in all my new endeavors. I tried the turbos and i know i can do it but its damn stressful and very tilt inducing if your not careful. Grinding only 4 tables for a short period of time makes you think there are more 2's-9's in the deck then allowed along with all sorts of crazy thoughts. The only way i can see someone grinding 16+ is if they click and never look back. I mean they've not the time anyways but even so click and move on is the best i think.

So after i shipped the frenzy my account was pretty fat for my stakes and not looking to take any shots at the bigger boys yet i decided to withdrawal all but 400$. I left this much purely because BeMyAtm was adamant about allowing myself a good number of buy-ins for my stakes range and i settled on 200bi's + 200 to allow me to play $5 45 player sng's + 1$ rebuys.

All was going to plan and i got above my 400$ at the start but then plummeted down very slowly at first and then boom in two days i lost almost 100$. I lost 16$ when my net went down while i was in turbos. I played one too many rebuys for one too many rebuys. I kept playing turbos even when i was running horrendous. All in all i was pretty disappointed with myself for "taking" such a silly shot.

So today i played poker lite and read around the net about variance and bankroll management and a bunch of things that help remind me there is a plan. I entered one game at a time and only played 4 in total. I played in a 50cent game. its like my morning stretch game. i ran well but ended up going out halfway thru. I played a dazzler for a min cash right after. Then i skipped a couple of the games id usually play and came back for the 1k gtd in which i ran beautifully. I was in first in chips with 2nd allin and one guy in 3rd watching me have AQ with Q on board to 2nds A9 on flop. Board was all clubs and he had 9 Club. 3rd was still great but i really like to take those down.

Then i finished with a nice run in the 3k dazzler. I was a bomb all game and was in or near first many times. I kept picking up hands in the BB and faced allins but never by a large stack so i was loving it. I made it into 18th i believe before i picked up 99 utg +1 and with blinds being 25/50k i shipped my 599k. Button snaps me off with 1010 and his 601k stack. I could have folded. I was in 14th before the hand but i really needed a double up to stand a chance to make final table there.

Still considering the way id been playing, today was an awesome day. I never worried once about having to cash or my poor play. i just reset and tried to do my best.

Just finished playing. Nothing special to report. I never managed a cash although i did rake a sng 45 player for 3rd which put me up on the day after my 8$ in buy ins for mtts. I also just finished some nlhe cash games after about 45 mins of play i was break even. Which was no small feat considering my first hand i on two tables i found jj and 1010 and both times was outflopped for two pair by late position players when obv my first hand is bb.

Tomorrow ill be playing in the 3pm 100 seats to the 100k and hoping to find a ticket.
Ill also be playing my usual games along with 1 $5 45 player sng.
Ive also decided ill try using Super Hud while playing lowest stakes cash games in between my tournies.

My initial thoughts on super hud are "dang i hate new gadgets" but i went ahead and installed it altho i can't seem to upload my hand history so all i see if ????/???/???/??? on all the players myself included. I was thinking of making a thread but maybe im just tired. I know a few of us here use it so if im stuck ill ask the mob.

gn an gl Blink

oh. i made a mtt video but i forgot to turn mic on for first hour. Second hour was awesome, third hour i bluffed my whole stack off into a guy who slow played KK until the flop which was k55. So suffice it to say i deleted the whole mess. lol.

SUPERBOWL SUNDAY!!!

Just finished my chili and chicken wing prep. Got some boys bringing beer and booze. The ladies bringing dips and chips and likely a humus flatbread spread and if im lucky a cheese platter. All thats really left is to get a glow going and making my football squares for us to bet on.

But that all aside i just finished rendering and uploading a cash game video. Watching it its clear im not very good at cash and really have no plan other then to try and not pay off others big bets but i failed that more then oncein the video.

I was lucky to finish up on the session but this is a very typical session for me. I would like to play more cash so in a months time ill redo the video and add it for comparison purposes.



I also downloaded and installed poker tracker 3 trial version but didnt use it in the video. Mainly because it says i cant use the grid system so ill try and mess around with it to figure that and when i do ill use it for a session and upload that. By which time ill take time to learn all the terms and then explain them for others so people can get a idea of what it does. How it helps and so on.

Another good video but i don't like the fact tjhat merge doesn't have a auto rebuy option, i mean it's pretty hard to reload after each hand...

As for hud forget about superhud or pt3, simply download hem, it's really the best Blink

They actually do have a auto rebuy. I even had the misfortune of having to use it in one game during the video i believe. They allow you to set parametres (Canadian its spelled Metre) which automatically fill your stack once it goes below a certain amount of BB's or other such conditions.

All of which is located in the settings toggle on the client gui or on the table in rebuy options. Because im playing on a grid it doesnt show the on table options as it would in normal view.

Ill look into Hem Mac, Ty for the advice.

hey micro.

How long do you suggest playing the 24 PLO games on Hero, before going into the other games you mention.. Im looking at bankroll terms here Smile

I want to follow your schedule of doing things from when you started at hero, as you seem to have done quite well Smile

Sure ice, honestly i continued playing them well after my account hit 500$. Its only the last week or so ive really stopped playing them.

My schedule was something like this. I would start my day off with those games (they've added a nlhe game now too) and the $200 freeroll horse game because it started at noon where i live. Id grind those plo games until i got a decent roll of 15-20 bucks. Then because i had no intention of stopping the plo grind i then started playing in the "quarter quicky" games. I personally found playing those plo games got you ready to be patient and play well for the daily mtt's. Combined with the daily 99$ and 100$ freerolls its simply a matter of time before your roll can support real money games. I was fortunate and shipped a freeroll for 18$ plus a 33$ ticket along with a couple 10$ cashes in those 88$ top 9 pays mtts very early on.

In more straight forward terms i wouldnt stop playing them until you have over 100$ personally.Its free money and really the way i thought about it going in was, its free money and if i cant win ill play until i learn how to. Those plo games are so helpful for many things.

I would still play them but i would rather open the spot up for someone who needs the money. Even though ive had some of the most fun and met some of the coolest people in them.

Can u play the golden apples sng's?


------------
Oh i also grinded those micro mtt's for 30 cents because first is 9bucks with only 30 people. Also you can usually sit out after one double up and make the money if someone starts diving and winning. I know i sat out of them before because i was simply overwhelmed with my other mtts and was surprised with a money popup.

Sorry this isnt very organized but id also like to add that because of the vpp bonuses once you do start playing in the 1$ mtt's or if your desire is to go cash games? (i went mtt's for risk reward and i could afford them with brm) They start giving you mtt tickets and the levels roll in pretty quickly and you get a ticket each level.

All sites have aute rebuy, so i think you only need to look for it.

Also i'm glad to hear you took my advice and you downloaded hem, can't wait for your feedback on it but i'm sure you'll like it Smile

Hmmm so what you are suggesting is play the PLO exclusively until your BR is around 15-20$, or play them in combination with the $200 Freeroll and the Daily 99$

Im asking as ive not played much online tbh, I would play 3 or so continuously and then stop, so my roll is only at $4 cashed in all but 2 ive played. Somewhere in my blog it says the exact results.

I need to know when the tournys are my time lol They always seem to be running late at night for some reason :/

EDIT: In response to the apple sng's. Nope says they are restricted.. Do you know what too?

Its for depositors only... Found out Big Smile

I have never deposited so i think although it says that i may be able to play because i fullfilled all the id requirements needed to cashout. So its likely account verified rest.

There are two 100$ triumvirate and 99$ hero mtts daily. They run approx 6pm est and 3am est respectively. The 3 am one has a reduced field with usually 60 players in them.

I approached it like this. I would start my day with grinding the plo games. I then played the horse freeroll because in my timezone its fitting but there are many 200$ freerolls spread thru out the day to choose from. After a few days of this system i had some success and decided to play in the "quarter quicky" mtt's. I did this because i was thinking i could always just grind plo if i lost the 25c. I joined every plo game i could at that time because every bit of money helps. Because i started playing real money games, albeit 25c games i then started paying rake and i think at level 4. you start getting 25c mtt tickets each level. So as you can tell there really is no reason why over time you dont hit something while you risk basically nothing. As i said because of my early freeroll cash i was able to add the 1$ deepstacks mtts to my schedule. After that it was all downhill. I was of the mind it was only a matter of time before i either lucked out (which is likely since its all free to me so anything is bonus) or i played enough poker to learn enough to increase my chances past just a lucky shot.

For me i was lucky, not only did i hit the freeroll but either that same evening or the day after i hit back2back cashes for 10$ in the 6pm mtt and the 3am mtt.

Dont have any expectations because right now ur training imo. While training who is to say you dont get rewarded though? if you dont get rewarded the system i mentioned is so good though its really just a matter of time before you fall into something.

Oh this is all being said with the hope you already follow a tight brm protocol and dont go hauling ur first bit of cash into a 5$ rebuy u cant even afford to addon in.

If you dont follow a good brm plan (im sure you do ice) you are only winning to redistribute the funds and the point is to hold onto some of your winnings so they steadily rise.



------------
Oh, i thought id mention i won my freeroll in 200$ plo game. Which i think is telling and speaks to how much those plo games helped my overall plo games. Especially when it comes to finding a fold in tough spots. Which im sure youll understand if you play those plo games and see some of the back door bingo playres.

Thanks for the words man Smile appreciate it.

Yeah im not one of these guys that go and blow my money in a $5 lol... I have many friends like that, who reload time after time and always lose, but im a better player than them so I know what im doing Tongue.. The only $200 Freeroll i see is the one at 12:00. What time would that be in est. As its easier to convert as est is GMT+5

its those damn poker maximuseseses or something. i had a real pain finding them to ss as well which is not typically a problem to do.

I turned off my filter and then toggled the entry fee. this still didnt put free on top so i manually rolled down the list and they were at the very bottom but that would mean they should have been at the top but never were. Im sure something is buggy but they are there but dont worry. you have 3 hours to find it lol Blink

So ii have been playing pretty poorly lately and trying to force things. For instance rasing with KK and promising ill fold to a A and when the ace comes i still keep on kind of forcing it. Today i was planning on recording some mtt play and decided to do a late stage mtt video. The game was the 400gtd dazzler and as soon as i click record my stack just fell sharply each time i played a hand. I really played good poker im sure but the cards were against me. I feel short of money but less then 10 players i think.

I then kept my schedule but met and untimely end in each and everyone i believe. I then played some cash games in which i am becoming more familiar with. My cash session was purely to acquire some vpps so i could play in a 25k bankroll booster game. I have been playing a session after my last mtt of the night for an hour and then again another session around 3pm. I get a break in between 3 and 4 usually unless im running deep in the 350 gtd. Last night i logged on and played really late cash game and the points counted towards today so i then figured another hour would give me the 100 vpps needed. I then completed that and entered the frenzy. rebuy stage was a real bitch for me. I went into break with 5k and added on the 30k to be at 35k. First hand after break i get KK utg. blamo im at 90k. Then a few hands later and the moron who played everyhand during the rebuy stage dove allin with 400k into my AA and paid me out the dicky. Less then an orbit later i get AKc and a 1/2 pot raise into my bb. i call and flop a K. Check call over 400k now.

Before i knew it i was itm and then trouble strikes. I get AQ on button and a weak player dives for 150k. I call and he has K10h. outflops me and holds. Then i get QQ a few hands later and before i act someone is allin. i call and they hit an A on flop and a second pair on turn when the 8 comes. Facepalm. Finally im left with just over 100k and blinds are 10/25k? i think. im on sb and i shove with AJ into bb. who just so happens to have AK. K on the flop and im out for 18$. Which im glad for but i was really eager for a deep run.

Luckily im in the 100vpp 25k game at the same time and am running well and manage to make final table of 72 players. Since all who fT get an entry the game moves fast and im HU without playing hand and am dealt QQ. two hand later im winner Smile

I cant wait for the 25k game. first is gtd 2500$$$$$

So. My day sucked major #@#$. I would likely be in jail right now if i played live and endured some of the absolute insanity i had to deal with online today. Im shook. To the core i dont think i could hold a feather right now let alone a #$%# hand.
