This is a discussion on Do you play better with smaller bankroll? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Just wondered? Myself if I start getting a a buffer (social player only) I start playing too loose and gamble more. I haven't deposited for
i always play better when i have small bankroll, is my biggest problem, i play too agressive when my wallet it s ok....
Same here. I'm always amazed when I see pot after pot falling into the hands of overly aggro players. There's a LOT of luck involved.
The occasional hand goes my way that shouldn't have, but not hand after hand. My bluffs only seem to succeed when it doesn't matter that much. But when the hand really matters, that's when I always seem to run into bad luck. That's why bankroll management is key.
Whatever your bankroll you want to be playing within its limits. If you have readily available funds to redeposit then it doesn't matter but if not you want to follow basic bankroll guidelines. Just google bankroll guidlines for cash games, mtt's and sng's and you will find some good info.
preferable to have an average amount of chips to play comfortable, although I read in some books that I like much more than selective with your cards and you play with speculative cards, as well as with SHORTSTACK teaches you to play better
I don't think having a small bankroll helps at all. With a larger bankroll you can play more and thus then win more. You can also loosen up your game a bit because losing isn't as big a deal. Like you said you can also lose more with a larger bankroll but you gotta play to win!
Wow, weird. I always play better with a fat-ish bankroll. After any witdraws, if I look at my br and it's half of what I had I feel unneeded pressure and it's unhealthy towards my game. (When I make a withdraw, it's always 50%)
If you want me to reply, please quote my message. Otherwise, It's a gamble. Thanks!
I 100% see what you're getting at, but I'd argue if that's your experience, then what you need to do is improve your mental discipline at the table, not reduce your bankroll relative to the stakes you're playing.
Bankroll management is a tried and true method for ensuring you can ride out the variance that you'll naturally encounter (no matter how good of a player you are) when playing poker over the long term.
Compromising your bankroll management because you think it'll make you play better would be pretty dangerous, DUCY?
Personally for me a real game starts when you have more than 50bb. You can make much more tactic moves with a big stack, but you have to be very disciplined. In case with a short stack you have only two options - push or fold.
I recently thought that my game is much better if my stack / bankroll is getting too small. I do not know what this is connected with. But the less money, the more collected I play. Can always play like that? To build for themselves such a strategy of the game, the conditions of the game?
re: Poker & Do you play better with smaller bankroll?
I think that with a small bankroll, I play more stiffly, within the framework of a strategy that over time ceases to make a profit. To develop the player you need freedom in financial means. The initial experience is the mistakes that are associated with the loss of money.
I think the bigger the bankroll is, the more people are worried and therefore makes mistakes. It is better to play a bit and gradually increase your bankroll, and then there will be fewer experiences, and accordingly the game will be more qualitative.
I think the majority plays better when playing the last money, well, it's clear that everything depends on the person, if you play always keep your emotions in check, you can play with any bankroll equally well.
Me too. I play much more disciplined and better with a small bankroll. But when my bankroll sometimes grows up because of a good won tournament it's suddenly scary money for me I don't want to loose and I often play to tight. Not the best way of thinking, I know . Because that means I will never build up a huge bankroll
