This is a discussion on What did you do with your first money withdrawal? within the online poker forums, in the Poker Deposits & Withdrawals section; Hello CC!
I want to know what they did with their first money withdrawal, if it was out of necessity or if they spent it on
Good afternoon! I once withdrew $ 70 because the poker room was closing. Otherwise, I would not withdraw such a small amount. I just used them to buy food. My dream is to win a large sum and withdraw it to buy something worthwhile. Good luck!
Almost all my money withdrawals are for necessities. Sometimes I reward myself for good performance, but otherwise it's all necessities. The logic here is simple - it is far better to raise the stakes if your bankroll allows and earn more than just take the money and spend it. Think long term!
My first poker withdrawal went straight into the bank Not as exciting as most might desire, but money is money and bankroll management is important. At that point in time, I didn't have the spare money to spend on spur-of-the-moment splurging. Perhaps this just reinforces that I believe I have decent bankroll management skills
p.s. I am not the kind of person to just store away money into the bank indefinitely like a squirrel collecting nuts for the winter, but I am not going to blow off my winnings unwisely like the prodigal sun either.
1st place finish at CardsChat 30 Day Course Freeroll (May 31, 2020). As my first ever CardsChat event, this one will always be special for me.
I have never withdrawn money...I have the bad habit of playing down my bankroll to zero. There were times when I was up about $150, but my wife was not happy that I was playing so many hours, so I would tell her that at the end of the day, I am either withdrawing $1000 or I will have zero...I ALWAYS ended up with zero. Did that 3 times, then I usually take a month off poker totally to spend quality time with my wife.
I think I spent it on a sports bet in a casino, it was years ago, a very small prize in pokerstars and I asked for it in a check that took about a week to reach me, very little money like 100 dollars, it was new in this regard withdrawals, maturity in many things
Since I started playing online poker I have never made a withdrawal.
I only think about withdrawing the money when I accumulate a relevant amount.
For now I don't have a bank to think about using the money.
I began playing online poker in 2006 - Freerolls only. For 14 years, I played on and off with winnings from cash games and tournaments. This year I made my first deposit, so I could play bigger stakes with my friends because of the pandemic. I am not yet up enough to consider a withdrawal.
If I do get a large bankroll, I will probably put it back into online poker.
or the online poker sites/casinos will hit you with outrageous fees for a mailed check , or even an instantaneous wire transfer to a bank account . i cant see the poker boom lasting much longer . the casinos ( both online and brick + mortar ) are quickly sucking the blood from the goose that lays golden eggs , us ! ridiculous rakes , jackpot drop fees , cashout charges , dealer tokes in live play , etc etc . tourneys now have so much late registration , re entry and often addons that the revered game of poker game is becoming a card using version of bingo !
