Lately i hear a lot off players who bust their bankroll in just 1 day or a couple off days.
Offcourse BRM is a ''beginners'' poker site, but busting in just 1 week isnt really possible if you just stick too some simple rules.
When you ''bust'', itsnot only ''your'' money you bust but also your giving BRM a bad name.
For example if many many people busting their free bankroll at mansion, mansion isnot giving any free bankrolls anymore too BRM in the future.
So storys like ''I played CASH $1/$2 and was up $30 and now i busted'' arent very smart things to say at this forum and also not very nice too BRM and other people at this forum who dont get a bankroll in the future cos the room dont giv them too BRM anymore.

So i dont want to be a smart ass, just want to help with some basic rules how you can minimize your risk Smile
(If people want to add feel free).

Basicly there are a couple off rules for new players:
(Holdem No Limit)

1) BankrollManagement:
Do the min 30buyinns rule (even better 50!).
Which means never buyinn in any CASH/SNG/MTT for more then 1/30 off your bankroll.
So for example u have $50 free money, you can play $1 SNG/MTT or NL2 CASH (If this exist, mostly sites start with NL4)

2) Playstyle:
For a beginner poker player its best to play TAG (Tight Agressiv).
Which means you only play top-hands and if you get them play them agressivly which means RAISE or RERAISE preflop and DONT limp with it, if you raise you can be sure many people fold preflop and you be HeadsUp or maybe at a 3way pot. On flop also play agressiv but know when ur beat and dont be a calling-station!

3) Tables:
In my opinion for a beginner its best to start with 10seat tables and not 6seaters.
Playing 10seaters you can wait for good hands and blinds dont eat you as much as 6seaters.

4) Tophands?
Tophands are top10/top20 hands so for sure AA, KK, QQ, AKs, AKo, JJ.
Allways raise with these hands preflop, if a player before you did a raise you RERAISE!
Also good hands are TT, 99 AQs, AQo, KQs, KQo.
Depends on table and position what to do with these hands.
Other starting hands you can play are suited connectors (JTs, T9s) and PocketPairs (88 and lower).
Carefull with these hands you dont want to pay big money preflop just to see a flop!

Ok, these are just some basic rules to prevent you go bust in just 1 week.
If other players wants to add please add Smile

Remember your free bonus is your money (first you need to finish bonus points), so play with that money as its your money what you had deposit!
I am sure every player plays much more carefull with money if they make a deposit off their own right?

So goodluck all and build your million Cool

Good post! Thumbs Up

Just want to add one

If your are new to Holdem, you might wont to try Fixed limit at the start.
It is not so easy to loose all you money, and the options are fewer.

You either Fold, Call or Raise.

So when you are beginning to win and understand the pokermath, you move to No-limit.

And the rake is higher, people playing crap hands make less mistakes.

Limit and No Limit are very different games.

Just a tiny thing to your Small pocket pairs!

Learn this one from a pro once:

"Playing Pocketpairs equals No Set, No Bet"

Hi shokaku

This was not an advice to a experienced player, and I know very well that they are different games since I have played both for a longer time.

But playing Fixed limit is an advice to totaly new players that only have played a couple of hours with play-money.

If you put this kind of player on a no-limit game, he will go all-in with about everything. So for building experience it is a nice way to start.

Rake do not this new player think about at all. And it is better for him to pay 0,05$ extra in rake, than loosing his entire bankroll on an all-in with buttom pair without kicker.

If some one has limped before you you could limp with small pocket pairs if you and the limper are fullstacked. This is for FR, don't know how to play PPs in 6max.

Some adds for SNG:

- Try NOT to attack the big stack, but attack middle stacks.
- When your gettin short wide up your hand range and use position to steal.
- Allways try to be average stack or higher.
- Becoming 1st is more important then just ITM.
- Never use auto-buttons.
- Mark players as TAG/LAG/CallingStation ect.
