This is a discussion on Do you win consistently? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; I am wondering how many people on here win consistently?
Do you make more money than you lose?
I was chocked when I saw the whole year 2017 leadership boards of the cc freerolls.
To date it's not that clear, but I guess at the end of the year it's the same, the better player win much more often that others.
Realize, there is 'variance', nobody wins allways.
For me (casual player, not very good, want to improve):
- I play freerolls (useless info: yes, I make more money than I loose)
- slowly I hope the get deeper on average in MTT's
- I have no idea what the standar deviation (variance) will/should be
Yes sometimes I win small money in the tournament and then play other cash games or buy tournaments in which a good prize fund, when I made deposits I lost money, now I play more freerolls and try to win in them not to make a deposit, now I almost nothing I do not lose when I play freerolls and sometimes it turns out to win!
I play mostly freerolls. after the victory I can go to the cash game or go to a tournament for which there is enough money. I used to make deposits, but decided to stop. And now I have already returned all the invested money that I was losing starting to play poker. And now I'm in the black. Bad, if I spend all the money, I need to look for luck on freerolls for further play
All games that are held for participants of this site do not require the Deposit of funds! So playing freerolls from this site you have the possibility of increasing your bankroll! And already on the money won can start a career as a successful poker player! of course this requires a lot of practice and learning!
Every citizen has his opinion which is the most correct !!
I remember when I started I was playing in the minus, it's fine, then there was a year when I was playing zero! I talked with the trainer from the Academy of Poker he said that the game in 0 is no longer bad! The last couple of years I still win more than lose! and it's very nice! all the luck at the tables)
I have found that I am still a low range player. I need more time to dedicate to poker but my game has improved a lot since I started playing online. I feel Iíll have another break through soon. Right now I think Iím about even with winning and losing. I have to improve in a few areas to become a profitable player. If I could concentrate solely on poker I feel I could do very well. Also I find I play extremely well live. Maybe I should just stick to that. Lol
I play regularly since December 2017 and I had highs and lows, mainly lows, at the moment I am in minus but thanks to the bonuses I am not below my deposit. I burnt most of the money in zoom 2nl, I will not play it anymore at least until when I will feel confident that I can consistently win the normal game.
I would be interested in knowing how long it took for the more expert players to beat the micros. Weeks, months, years?

Do you make more money than you lose?
I play about 3 years and during that time I was in a small minus. Only recently I started to go into plus and little by little to earn poker. Everyone needs their own amount of time to go into profit! It depends on your diligence and your belief in success!
I'm probably one of the millions of players who think theyvare really good but in reality I'm a losing player.
I dont sweat it though, i think winning is something that eventually comes if you keep at it.
I knew someone who spoke French once. He seemed to speak it great for years after learning at school. Then one year he moved to France, after 6 months he had a "euraka" moment - where all of the sudden he went from knowing the words to the language actually making sense and he became entirely fluent- he understood the grammar, the humour, the adages, etc. Maybe something similar happens in poker when you play enough and constantly learn.
I would not say that I spend more than I will win, because I have not made a deposit yet. I play for money that I win in freerolls or with tickets. Although once I spent all the money won (but there were not many of them).
For me its profitable. I can play an average of about 3 hours a day, and make about $100 a month playing mostly SnGs and MTTs. now I never play for more then $5 online, or $100 live. With that said, I could be up $200 during the week, and lose $100 live. or hit for $500 one month, and blank for the next 2....
I would suggest really learning the game you want to be good at. Without saying "you can know everything" there will come a point when you realize there isn't much more you can learn. When that happens, it comes down to how you handle variance, and the evolution of the game.
Altough I am only a recreational player, I am playing in a plus. Not huge amounts, because I am mainly freerolling or playing at the micros. I play few games during the week and some more at the weekends, if the time allows it. It is a nice additional money, that I mostly reinvest for games, but also cash out some for the personal fun. But at all, I have a very conservative bankroll management.

No, I do not win constantly. I do however have a good bankroll management system. I win enough to keep playing. I have only ever deposited on one site. I have money on 8 different sites though. I go through my ups and downs, but like I said I have money in 8 sites, and have only deposited at one site.
If you speak about online i definitely won more than i have invested as i play only freerolls and never made a deposit. I also managed to get to the money just once and it was for a league tournament so i won just 1 cent but it still more than zero.
From cash games with friends i am definitely on a loss but there we play more to see each other and have couple of drinks than to play seriously.
I am trying to read materials about poker and improve my game but unfortunately time is not enough so i usually manage to play just 1 or 2 games in the evening when i get back from work during business days and also not every day i have this opportunity. During weekends i usually have other things to do so i can not play much more than during the other days. Anyway for me poker is hobby for now and i don't invest money in it so i hope that slowly i will improve in future.
