Many brave people have started companies and found other ways to make money. There is another way - Online Poker. Think of it as a business. In business, you always have to make important decisions, invest andin time earn profit thanks to correct decisions. You could wait for ages for a profit, maybe years. In online poker you could see it in minutes. You „invest“ into a bank to receive profit in the end. Lets not talk about what to do and which decisions to make as every situation is different and has different options. Lets discuss how to manage your bankroll.
Firstly you should set aside an amount that you can afford to lose. I will use $400.
Second step is to figure out how big limits to play. Online poker rooms offer multiple limits, starting from 0.02/0.04 blinds and going up to 1000/2000 dollar blinds! One important thing about when you start is Rakeback. Make sure you register through an affiliate that offers you the best Rakeback. I would suggest starting from smaller online poker tournaments, $5 buy-in or so. It is the perfect way to start building your poker bankroll because the buy-in is small. I suggest that you do not spend over 10% of your bankroll on one online poker tournament. You will unquestionably have some failed online poker tournaments and this way you have not spent a noticeable sum of your bankroll.
Third step is not to over rate your skills and not rush to the next level. for the most part in online poker, tournament buy-ins actually have an effect on the amount of skilled players. The more expensive, the bigger the amount of good players. Obviously there are exceptions but mostly it is true. I have seen players who have won inexpensive and big field poker tournaments and then they play a tournament which is ten times pricier! Mostly they come back with some bad surprises and are amazed because of not winning. Start from the easier low limits, i think it’s perfect to start out with noxwin rakeback and once you are playing well on that limit then move higher step-by-step.
What’s the main thing then? Choose the correct bankroll, don’t run to high limits right away, make a plan on your current limit. This needs patience but as time goes by you see that it will pay off.
