There have been countless studies done on poker players from around the world and hundred’s of online poker reviews posted by the most advent poker players show that online poker tournament’s such as Sit-N-Go’s are the most profitable overall. The main reason? You can’t lose your WHOLE ENTIRE BANKROLL playing an online poker tournament. When you sit down in a ring game aka cash game, you run the risk of losing your entire hard earned bankroll in one hand. Let me give you a little scenario.
You think your aces are good, you push all in preflop only to be called by QQ and get cracked. Your hours of grinding at the .25/.50 poker tables, .50/1.00 poker tables, and finally playing 1.00/2.00 poker blinds is done the drain. It happen’s all the time to so many player’s, read the poker news or poker message boards around. There are TONS of them. You will see many horror stories and even entire sections of some forums dedicated to texas holdem bad beats! It seriously happens all the time and the only way to prevent this from happening to you is managing your bankroll and not going on TILT.
The easiest way of managing your bankroll is simple. Stick to Sit-N-Go’s, where you only run the risk of losing a set amount of money (the online poker tournament buy-in) and NO MORE. Your losses are controlled and if your poker hands are not hitting or you are getting sucked out on for the night, take a break and recover tomorrow. Your bankroll can always be built back up, if you lose it all you will have to redeposit. Not only will you be re depositing once, you will be doing it over and over again just to play online poker.
You simply just need to deposit one time and that is it. Treat your bankroll as if it was your own kid. It needs love, attention, and care. Without these 3 elements, you will go broke QUICKLY. Know your poker rules even before you deposit for the first time. Play poker online free of charge before you open that wallet up! I know it’s a rush to win money, but you won’t succeed without the proper mindset and training.
You can practice for play money until your blue in the face, but you won’t know how to play REAL poker until you start at the real money level. At the play money level, you will see many players’ push with total garbage and not a care in the world if they lose, tack on $1000.00 top prize finish, you better bet your last dollar these same players will play differently. To get a real feel of poker online if you are just starting out, try depositing $50.00 on Full Tilt Poker or Pokerstars and make sure that’s the last time you EVER deposit. Play online poker tournaments such as $2.00 Sit-N-Go’s to build your bankroll up. Once it reaches over $150-200 move on to some $5.00 Sit-N-Go’s.
Once you master winning single table Sit-N-Go’s over and over again, the real profit and fun comes when you start multi-tabling! Multi-table your way into living off the profit’s of your Sit-N-Go’s all from the comfort of your own home.
