Hi I am playing poker at pokerstars at 6 months at play money,and now I am crushing the game.I know its not a proof of my skill (but we all start somewhere) and I have decided to move onto real money.so basically I am starting at lowest stake cash games and slowly move up the ladder.so I want to ask you guys what should be my expectations per hour because I am willing to put any number of hour to build my bankroll and move at higher stakes.
Any help will be really appreciated.
It depends on a lot of things. Firstly, what you mean by crushing play money and what your bankroll management (BRM) strategy was there. Honestly, starting out per hour, I'd say you need as low expectations as possible and if you consistently make 10% of your buy-in(s) then it is successful.
I don't necessarily agree with people saying you should play freerolls. The reason for this is that they could make your cash game worse as they reward a different style of play. Also, even if you bink a freeroll for a lot of buy-ins it can make the cash feel even more like a grind and you could take it or your BRM less seriously or be less happy with the cash game success.
It just depends what your most important goals are.
Counting pennies is pointless,focus on playing well.Don`t worry about results,because most likely,they won`t be good at first,so why worry? it`s self-defeating. Play well,make good decisions,,,try moves,study,take `shots` to see where you are as well as getting used to playing at a high level without being nervous. Enjoy the journey,it`s a bumpy ride
Flattery will get you everywhere,,,
You asked a task with many unknowns. We do not know how you play. Here one advice arises. If you get to be in profit then follow the rule of bankroll. Good luck to you. Remember, more players lose money than they win.
