Do you keep any money you win from poker tournaments?

If its just bounties or small wins I just leave it in the bank to re-use but if I get a big win or finish high in the money I try and withdraw most of it and again just leave a bit to play again.

Unfortunately, I haven't had good results yet, but as soon as I have one, I'll tell you.

Lately I've been leaving everything for the game, because there are no big winnings, there is nothing to put on the card😭, and you need to play for something.

I play a weekly home game, £20 buy in snd futhet £20 add-ons. I reached the final table yesterday and made it to heads-up. We made a deal and received £380 each.

I'll definitely be saving some of my winnings and treating myself to a good dinner. The rest goes back to my future games.

Virtually all the money goes to playing in larger tournaments or their satellites. Playing is a hobby for me and winning money only increases the entry fee. If I win a million, then I will consider whether to withdraw it.

I never play on-line Poker to make money. I play for the enjoyment of the game, and any money I win stays in my bankroll until I get sick of the site and close my Account. There are too many things that can go wrong when playing On-line, that are simply beyond your control, For that reason alone I play for Peanuts, $1.00 to $5.00 SnGs, freerolls and maybe the odd 1/2 cent cash games.
Why? because I enjoy playing, But in a Live game the gloves come off and I not only want to win the game, I want to destroy my competition completely. Playing on-line, only for fun gives me the practice I want so that when I do play Live I have the experience behind me to do this.
Poker owes me nothing, and that is because I follow a strict Bankroll strategy, On-line and in a Casino, I never take money into a Casino that I am not happy losing, and if I come out broke after playing for several hours then so be it, I can still say I enjoyed the experience even if I lose, because I am comfortable with losing that money I put aside to feed my Passion.
If you walk out broke and defeated, and then start to worry about paying bills or Mortgage, you really should not have gone inside in the first place. Get your priorities in order, and then any money you have left, you can afford a day at the Race's, or a night in a Casino.
Works for me!

I put exactly half of it into my bankroll for sports betting on pokerstars, and the other half I withdraw to my bank card. I also have a special rule: when I take 1st place in CardsChat tournaments, I withdraw the entire amount of my winnings and create a second bankroll in another bookmaker's company. But so far I have won CardsChat tournament only once. :)

My bankroll is always $100 or more and never less. I withdraw on average once a quarter, but my bankroll always stays the same. In my opinion, $100 is the optimal minimum bankroll, which is quite enough to continue to be a fairly active player.

if I win more than $10, I withdraw money for food, for me now it's the only way to earn something, I save the rest for the next tournaments

I read that there are people who believe in the algorithms of poker rooms and such an attitude towards the bankroll is not beneficial for them, so I do the same myself:D

Will always cash out if I have a big win on a tourney as I would rather have the money in my bank account.

Always keep enough funds on a site to buy in to what is needed but if I need to deposit then I can always do that.

I do separate and have one bank account for deposits withdrawals and to keep track of my bankroll.

Imagine going through a black Friday episode again when all those players had most of their rolls locked out and took them ages to get the money back.

I generally use it to generate reik, play more tournaments and thus increase what I want to withdraw.

I invest the little I earn in real estate funds, but I will invest in a new PC as soon as I succeed

if I win at poker I spend this money on delicious food or just to have fun. If it's a large amount of money, I withdraw it and spend it on something to please myself or give someone a gift and leave the money to play a little bit at poker sites but I think it's always better to withdraw money

Hello everyone. Before registering on CC, I was able to accumulate a small amount of money playing on ACR, which allowed me to upgrade my tablet. Currently, since there haven't been any big wins, I'm putting all the money I've won back into the game. Apparently, I have no strength for saving - I need to pull myself together and start building a proper bankroll, but I don't always like making plans 🤗🤗🤗. The only thing that doesn't upset me about this is that playing in paid tournaments mentally prepares me, even if I lose, because freerolls are good, but you need to grow through the limits.

I always try to reach a certain amount of money, I withdraw and leave something very minimal to restart, I try not to leave too much, although I generally play freeroll tournaments and from time to time one or another tournament where I have to pay entry, I also play at cash tables when I don't have much time to dedicate to long tournaments, that's why I try to leave something minimal

Generally I always withdraw all my money, if I leave $5-10 it's a lot, just to not leave my account with nothing in the ATM, I usually play more freerolls, so I don't see the need to leave money in my account, anyway Sometimes when I leave some money it is to play blast, or play a little at the tables
