Casino/Blackjack = Bankroll Death
Hello everyone! This is my first post on CardsChat. I've played Poker for many years and just started playing online a month ago. Sadly I've running into many issues that never bothered me before! I do understand bankroll management and when to walk away, however online I get side track very easy!!!
I started off with a $50 deposit and turned that into over $170+ in one weekend of playing Sit N Goes, mainly HU. Then I went on tilt a bit and blew my bankroll to $20, worked that amount again back up to around low $100. While waiting for a HU match to start I clicked the Blackjack
tab!!! I made around $20 very quick by small betting, then as you know I started chasing the losses and killed my bankroll very quickly.
Is there any tips for avoiding this plauge? I'm a Poker Player and outside of this online thing, I would never dare bet money at Blackjack, slots
, or anything else because you're bound to loose it all. I ended up getting side track, loosing my composure and going broke with my Poker Bankroll quickly!
The money doesn't matter to me because I never deposit money I'm attach to. If I'm alright with burning those bills, then I'm alright with putting them in my Poker account.
Any tips for avoiding the stupid casino games? I wont log on to Poker until I've gathered some better ways to manage what I do. I'm sure others have done stupid with their Poker bankrolls playing the online casino.
Thanks for any advice... I hope to never do this again! It wont be hard for me to build another Bankroll as I enjoy HU play, and usually win 70% according to my average on my spreadsheets.
