re: Poker & Petty Cash
I have read all the replys on this page and agree with all of them . As crazy as that sounds . I think the first thing is your comfort zone , if you move up from 1 to 5's are you comfortable playing with $5 of your money. I tell pepole all the time that I don't consiter poker gambeling ,I say this because a good poker player will win in the long run, where a even a brilliant craps shooter will not. But in reality every time you sit down at the poker table you are taking a gamble. Even the best poker players don't win them all. You have heard the saying scared cards can't win , well this is all to true! Online you will find bad players at alll levels , I agree you will find more at the low limits but online they can be found any where , and there dumb luck can beat you in any sescion .
Let your bankroll decide at what level you play , build your bankroll and move up as it grows , and as D M sayed if it dosen't feel right move back .
The low limit game is tough to beat sometimes , but it teaches you disipline. But move up as soon as you can so you don't develope the bad habits that come along with this level. What I mean is as you move up you will have to adapt along the way , the same as you have to adapt from one table to the next.
Any way I think the most important thing is to play within your bankroll limits, grind it out at that level untill you make enough to move up and ALWASE leave youself outs.
