I have over the years tried to be profitable in Poker, but I believe that I have been commenting on flaws, whether in the game in general or in my strategy, I would like to know how we can be profitable when seems that nothing is going as planned:confused::confused:

A difficult question to answer. I think I should review their games and look for their flaws to be able to fix, anyway if there is a magic formula I also want to find out.

Tournaments are tough. They are high varience, so proper bankroll management is key. Don't play above your means. Be patient and get lucky. Simple enough right?

I seriously doubt that anyone will tell another person the skills needed to win. From my information, only a small percentage of players cash out an win in the long term. The house is always the winner.....

winning in poker is 3 headed monster: The first and most important head is bankroll management. Without it can not win. The second head is tilt control - do not tilt play your best game with what left after bad beat. The third head is the pure poker skill - you have to be good at the game. And this 3 headed monster also has a tail called variance, whenever you go the tail allawys follows you. Good luck

Bankroll Management - then learn the game within your bankroll. You can't keep playing if you go bust and you can't play well if the money means too much to you.

Hey wilpinsi.i would advice you to make a certain plan of how you are facing poker.Ιn my opinion there are some steps you should follow:1)Choose to be specialized in one format of the game..What do you prefer/enjoy to play mostly?Cash games,Sngs or MTTs?in which of them you think you are better at or you have better potential?Choose one of them and focus all you mental power..
2)Start to study this format even from beginning!!All we think that we are in good level but sometimes we miss even some crusial concepts..For example be sure that you are good knower of basic maths of Poker and then continue to more advanced concepts..Study,Study Study!You should build your knowledge step by step...Feel free to ask questions in forums,post hands of your previous played hands and discuss them,explore and solve your leaks and misunderstandings..Watch coaching videos for your stakes and format you play and see how other profitable players play..There are tones of good videos on internet,i am sure many of them are very educational.
3)Bankroll management:You can understand by your own how important is this so i will not analyse it more..:)
4)Mental Preparation:poker is a game who needs very very strong stomache..Variance is a b**ch and can kill a healthy bankroll easily,even if we play great..So be calm,avoid tilting situations which can destroy days/months of your good playing and give your 100% of your poker skill no matter of short term result..
Good luck :)

Put a stake in the ground, start today, track everything you spend vs everything you win.
Track you hand play, sounds hard but it’s not.
Start looking at which hands you lost, examine them until you feel like You know what u did, what u could have done differently. Learn

Rake can make a break-even/ slight winner player a losing one.


I take notes when i play and my biggest problem is the menthal game. I am struggling to stay focused for a long period of time. This means that in the later stages of a tournament, where the big money are, I will be playing my B or C game. Really working on this lately. GL all! :rolleyes:

Poker is a game off odds, at least the online poker. So if you are not being profitable at a short amount of games change your game plan until you do it.
