Sometimes I think that when you download money from a page later in the game, I start to lose Does the same thing happen to you? Does anyone know if it really is like this or is it a sensation? I want to believe that it is not like that but the truth is that because of the results I always doubt

It is part of poker to lose and that you are relating directly to withdrawing money, but it is a false feeling, erase that thought from your head because it will affect your game, there are always losing streaks and if you have that feeling then never leave behind that:jd4::jd4::jd4::jd4:

Yes, withdrawal is like a toxic curse

We all must avoid it

It doesn't exist, but it's part of the mindset of almost every poker player. :)

Shouldnt matter

Withdrawing money from a site shouldn’t affect the algorithm poker sites run to run the site. It doesn’t seem to do that for me… I think..

Curse of poker

I do believe them same, i always tend to win poker tournaments when my poker site account is filled, but then lose a greater hand pre-flop like pocket Aces to 7-10 when i withdraw...
At the beginning, i taught it was just some bad luck, but when i read your thread, na it's real...

The good old "withdrawal curse" conspiracy theory. Until someone presents some actual evidence, that any online poker site is rigged, I recommend to not waste brain power on these kinds of speculations.

THE Big Game

IN :angel:the case of some PS stars like Daniel Negreanu, Phiil Hellmut or Doyle Brunsson etc... they really are always at the final tables of live pokerstars tournaments; Human noble mortals can be content to win 1/8 tournaments; in case Mmos could be greater than 1/10. accepting defeat should be the start of your Stars journey.:deal:

A similar feeling often crosses my mind when you win a tournament sponsored by CARDSCHAT, you sign up for any money tournament and you don't get a decent hand. Either the players who are not part of the forum are very good or something happens

Some people after withdrawing tend to tighten up their play subconsciously with a smaller roll, this will have an impact on results.

Hello. I understand your thinking. I have done withdrawals on three different sites, and I still fare well on them. Hope that helps.

it is a myth that one hears again and again. But when something is said enough times and you start to believe it, it seems to be true. But I think it has nothing to do with the fact that you start to lose because you have paid, but that you simply stuck in a streak of bad luck. I've already paid out a few times and sometimes I'm stuck in such a phase where nothing can win but have such phases even without having paid out. And also have times where I pay out and nothing changes and I can keep winning. It's part of the game sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

No, there are no evidences. Just withdraw any amount you need, have no fear.

I make fairly regular withdrawals, and do notice a bit of loss o'luck after one, but it doesn't last long and I'm back on the horse!

Thats actually a really good point and might be part of the explanation for this myth, which has excisted since the birth of online poker. Few people move down after withdrawing money, so withdrawing always mean, we become more aggressive with our bankroll management. This can then lead to us being overly focused on min-cashing in MTTs, because now we kind of need that money to maintain our bankroll. Or if we play cash games, maybe we shy away from high variance but profitable spots and play with "scared money".

For a lot of people the path to tilt is also shorter, if even a modest downswing might force us to do unpleasant things like redepositing or moving down. Its much easier to play well, when we are overrolled for the games, we play. So ideally we should not withdraw funds, if we are serious about online poker and eventually want to make it into mid or high stakes games. That being said I have withdrawn most of my winnings myself, because.... well... life happens.

I don't think that is for real.
It happens from time to time but those are the swings.
You catch a good upswing then you cashout then somehow its normal to catch a downswing too

I mostly withdraw money from poker rooms that no longer allow me access (partypoker, Bet at Home, unibet, Highstakes), and that inability to access was the reason for the withdrawal. The only poker room from which I paid out money and where I can still play is within the local WWin bookmaker and I did not notice any difference compared to the period before the payout. I think your impression is of a suggestive nature, that is, superstition.

I withdrew my money from BOL and now its horrible!

I'm only making final tables and taking 2nd-5th places on a consistent basis. I was winning 1/10 final tables I made before and I was making 1 final table every 5-6 mtts I played! I still average the same amount of final tables but I just can't win as often as I used to!

Oh, no! The cash-out curse!

I don't think it's weird that you're reporting this, as I don't really trust poker software. I'll start noticing that.
