re: Poker & Bad Bankroll Etiquette
Yeah I gotta agree with tpc. yeah tpc is right on,if ur having problems winning then bankroll management will really only help u lose less, but ull still be losing.
If ur a having difficulties winning poker, it might be many things and not just bankroll management. there might be holes in ur game, u might have poor table selection, or ur playing against winning players (especially in headsup), u might have problems with tilt, like u lose and decide to go up in stakes to make up ur loses. You might be following advice from a book that is designed for playing hi stakes games but ur taking that strategy and playing lo stakes. The list goes on and on.
Until u figure out what ur problem is, id tell u to play the full tilt playchip tables and skip the cash tables.
The competition at the hi playchip tables is comparable to the lo limit cash table ur playing on the cash side. It really wouldn’t be a waste of time because ur playing similar competition. And the patience from playing playchipers would help u become a better player also.
There also isn’t a need to pay for lessons that u coulda gotten for free at the playchip tables.
2nd id say if u were to stuck on continuing playing those cash sngs and tourns, id say stay at a single level for awhile, - u sound like u played all over the place. If ur losing at a level, take a step back review the hand history see if were ur going wrong. Look for a particular type of hand or situation that ur having big time trouble with, figure it out. U should also go to a site like pokerprolabs and see where ur finishes are in those tourns and sngs. for example, if ur finshes are mostly in the early finishes to middle finishes categories on the right of ur username, ur probably gambling way too much early in ur tourns and sngs. And dont go up levels really fast although u can.
I really wouldn’t wrry about losing that 200$. But what I would be concerned about is figuring out how to get u to becoming a winning player.
