re: Poker & The only way to make money
yeah i also like to get up and leave whenever im up and have been sitting at the table. i keep this in mind whenever im up in chips. "Just because i'm up doesnt mean i can start playing loose." dont be temped to call small bets because you have a lot of money. another thing i keep in mind is "Now that i have chips, i have work on keeping them". whenever you sit down to play, your goal is to make money. after you made some, you goal should be not only to make more, but not to lose the money you have made. you're not gonna win every pot and might get unlucky a lose a huge, chunk but thats poker and if you played right theres nothing you can do about it. if you find yourself calling bets and raises with any hand and you chip stack goes from say $300 + down to $150+ in less then an hour..you really need to rethink the way you play.
