Playing Poker Online - Defying The Odds Of Making A Stable Income

Feb 28, 2008
Playing poker online from the comfort of your own home and making enough money to pay your mortgage, car note, support your family, and put food on the table is every advent poker players dream. You don't need any online poker tools or learn any online poker cheating. You just need to learn how to kick tail and take some names. Many Texas Holdem Poker players out there will fail miserably; in fact over 80% of all will fail. You know why? Well, player's starting out make 2 HUGE mistakes.

1. Play Sit-N-Go's Instead of Cash Games!

If you play a lot of cash games and are losing money like crazy you know exactly what I mean when I say this! Have you ever deposited $50.00 and lost it in 15 minutes and then deposited more and swore to yourself that's it for the week?? Come on... No one's reading this with you, you can admit it! I mean I have been there plenty of times until I learned my lesson. I read many online poker reviews and poker news letters which strictly said that the best way to make pure profit online is by online poker tournament Sit-N-Go's. I didn't believe what everyone was saying and I thought Sit-N-Go's were boring and were going to be to slow for me. Well, I threw in another $50.00 on June 26th, 2003 and that was the last $50.00 I HAVE EVER put in. The reason why...online poker tournament Sit-N-Go's to build your BANKROLL. If you put in 50 bucks, it is best to start playing $2.00 Sit-N-Go's and working your way to $5.00 and $10.00 eventually. Once you master the art of winning Single Table Sit-N-Go's you will learn how to multi-table Sit-N-Go's and make a fantastic amount of money per day. With Sit-N-Go's you can only lose the amount of the buy-in of the Sit-N-Go and nothing else if you take a horrible beat. In online poker, you ARE going to get sucked out on. It's the fact of life and the Poker Gods are just on some player's sides some nights. I am sure you have been on the other side of things and sucked out on players yourself. So just remember, Sit-N-Go's are your best friend!

2. Bankroll Management

I can't stress this enough. DO NOT play Texas Holdem online unless you have the proper bankroll. So what is the proper bankroll you might ask? Well here is a nice little printable chart you can use over and over again for your convenience...

Buy-in + Usual FeeBankroll Requirements

$5 + $.50 $110 - $165
$10 + $1 $220 - $330
$20 + $2 $440 - $660
$30 + $3 $660 - $990
$50 + $5 $1100 - $1650
$100 + $9 $2180 - $3270
$200 + $15 $4300 - $6450

Do not play poker online if you DON'T HAVE THE PROPER BANKROLL. Follow this chart and you will succeed. If you don't believe me just don't even bother depositing and wasting your money, instead stick to one of the many poker freerolls offered daily by Pokerstars, Full Tilt, and Titan Poker. There are people who have started their poker careers literally from just playing freerolls.
