It's not about the money. It's about decision making. If you don't study the game you will keep losing. If you study you will start losing less and after a while you will become pro and make us all proud. For now thanks for your part at poker economy! Much appreciated!

Because poker is a game primarily dependent on luck.

If you have a good run and win a tournament or cash. Then be ready for the downswing to come right away and you will lose almost every hand.

My rule of thumb is that if I win something I cash out 80-90% and leave the rest to play.

Personally, I don't have the time or ability to play all day every day and play with upswing and downswing. I don't have the head for it and I don't have the time, that's why when I win something I prefer to withdraw and buy myself something or take my wife out to a restaurant.

who has the same problem as me ? 🤔


can someone give me some advice? 🙏
You lose because you risk too much. You win because you risk too much. Only responsible, disciplined and consistent players can have good results in the long run. In my opinion, your question should be reformulated, roughly like this: "What is bankroll management and how to use it."

This is probably more common that many want to admit. 85% of players are going to lose some money in the long term. While it can be great to win a big tournament and have the funds to move up, for many people this maybe a mistake.

It's variance. I was having also this problem, but I realize that when I'm winning I am on an upswing and at some moment the downswing is coming. When players are on downswing, in general they are playing worse, tilted and this costs more money. In order to sustain the downswing you need to keep a healthy bankroll and go down in stakes.
Everyone needs discipline but it is true that a good bet can always lose so avoiding killing off your bankroll by tilting after a bad beat is hard.

I also had such a problem. I repeatedly won money, and after a day or two I repeatedly lost it. All because I did not follow bankroll management. Now I follow bankroll management, I win much less, but the advantage is that I actually stopped losing money.

bankroll management can help this issue and compress after a win try not to jump in to another tourney after having success if your not a daily grinder and more of a hobby player. dont get caught up in chasing after loosing a small portion of your winnings. time is on your side

I only advise you to build a bank with discipline. If you have $10, you can only play at minimum limits and you cannot spend $10 in a day if you are at those limits! There are days of winning and days of losing, days where what you play you lose, just as there are days where what you play you win! My advice is that if you win $30, withdraw $25 and leave the rest to play, if you lose it, start banking again with freerolls!

Hi! I think you either play out of line with the bankroll,or make frequent mistakes in the game, or give in to tilt. I agree with the above, you need to lower the limits, look for errors, maybe change the type of game, as well as its structure and pace. Good luck!
Good advice, I agree with every word.

You can't have different results by doing the same thing over and over again. If we want things to change, we have to change the way we do them.

You're absolutely right that recognizing when you're on an upswing or a downswing can help you make better decisions. During a downswing, emotions can run high, leading to suboptimal play and further losses. Maintaining a clear mindset and disciplined approach becomes paramount during these times.

Maybe your problem lies in your bankroll management. Or maybe you just play bingo instead of poker :)

Good morning everyone, why do I always win and lose everything? I've been playing poker since the 2018 final and learned about variance 2 years later. You need to know how to play within your limit according to your bankroll and your ability to beat the field. Many players don't want to start playing cheap at micro limits and will play bigger where there are players who have better limits. A fundamental tip to make a profit is to study a lot and practice a lot, I study a little and I am profitable on all the sites that play, just by following the theory. Okay, but where do I find the theory, when researching you will find a lot of content on which ranges to play from each position, which hands to play with 3bet, which hands to play with steel. Knowing the basics is enough to beat the micro limits, then just increase your bankroll and increase the limits without rushing.
