I play poker
for many years now and I just can give you the following advice.
I am just a profitable poker
player which means over a longer period (a year or so) my bankroll increases. (sometimes not that much�
1. follow a strict bankrollmanagement , for me my bankroll is about 700-1000 euro and I sit mostly at cash-tables with max 10 euro. (I play 4 to 6 tables at the same time). If I get to 15 euro I leave the table and get a new one with 10 euro (this works at unibet
) (= put my profit safe and avoid big losses (also no big big wins)
Tournaments and SNG mas 5 euro buy-in.
My managementlevels are stricter than most you can find but I see it as an extra safety margin and I see poker
as a hobby (= enjoy playing and not to loose money)
2. When I face several bad beats in a session and I notice it affects my game, I quit and start a game of Catan (and do not play poker
anymore that day)
My experience is that if you stay at the tables you end up loosing more money � so better leave the tables ( for me if I loose more than 50 euro in a session (loose my buy-in at 5 tables) it s time to stop playing)
This is the way I keep on playing for several years without ever deposited own money, I started with some ND-bonusses and some freerolls and learned it that way. In my first year I was already at +/- 500 dollars at fulltilt (started with a ND-bonus of 50 dollar) and thought I was a poker
champ lol .. had some losses, did not go lower in buy-in and got punished and ended up at zero.
So my advice decide what s you want �
play recreational without loosing money (winning is an extra)
wanne get semi-pro or pro � keep in mind that you will have to spent a lot of time playing poker
, lot of study, game analysing,etc
