This is a discussion on How do you fund your Poker? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Do you stick to using your winnings from previous games or do you put a certain amount of your earnings a side each month? Or
I have never made a deposit. I play freerolls until I have enough to go to the cash tables. I either lose it all at the first table, then start over again, or if I make some money, I grind slowly until I can step up to the bigger stakes (2-4 LOL). I got my bankroll from zero to over $150.00 3 times. Each time I was starting to play way too much poker, and my wife was not happy that she could not get the computer in prime time....so, I decided to go to the $1-2 tables, thinking that either I play to zero or leave the table with enough to actually cash out and play some live poker in Las Vegas (figured $500 should do it). It took me less than an hour to get to zero each time. I would take off from poker for about a month each time (to let my wife use our computer), then I would start the process all over at freerolls.
Online I deposit once in a while but most fund poker from freerolls. Live I have a brankroll specifically for poker and I fund it with my winnings and haven't had to put extra money in it in about 5 years.
Both. I fund my poker using my winnings from previous games and withdraw when my bankroll reaches a certain point. I don't like to keep more than a few hundred on a site at a time. My winnings are kept separately and is still considered part of my poker bankroll though.
i'm stuck dying in freeroll land with all the crazy's...just got knocked out with QQ -6-2o took me out...ridiculous!!! pre-flop raise. flop raise. he has top pair with those monster 6's and hits runner runner for a straight! I refuse to make a deposit with guys like this running around.. believe me pay $7-15 buy ins for a sng and they are still there. Had my bankroll well over 500 a few times but ever since I cashed out most of it, I cant win. runner runner four of a kinds to beat me, straights. one outers. If it wasnt for bad luck I'd have no luck at all
At the moment, I play poker only at the expense of promotions and freerolls, as well as the available bankroll in poker rooms. After quite negative moments in my life, I stopped investing money in poker, betting and online casinos, especially since at the moment the offers start from scratch or free on the Internet enough.
Before ive been cashing almost every too weeks on Pokerstars, but my game didnt improve thats why i decided to stick on the freerolls and build a bankroll from the bottom.
At all i didnt build the bankroll till now but ive improved my poker skills. They are not that awsome but im trying.

I'm not good enough to put real $ into the game yet. Especially online, in the Casino I have a fixed limit I play normally $300.00 per year and see how I go. I've been up most years. But never enough to feel its a career choice.
Right now I am only playing freerolls because my situation in life lends no money to playing poker especially when my past cashing record is spotty and my bankroll management is bad. If i can build money playing freerolls that is the only way I will be able to fund playing. I hope soon enough I can have enough money to enter into some good tourneys and cash!
