      Will welcome you to the site and congratulations on your initial double-up. The video is a good start, but I have a feeling you want something more direct. So here's a few tips I've garnered from reading these forums.




      1 --- Find the game you like. I'm not just talking a poker games such as Omaha, Stud, or Holdem; I also mean the type of game, such as STT, SNG, ring, or MTT.

      2 --- Stay within your budget. It is easy to push yourself into a battle at a higher cost level where your mind is more focused on the money than the play.

      3 --- Know thyself. No philosophy lesson, something more practical. Play when your mind can focus on the game without the usual real life distractions. Online play is far more taxing than live since the speed is sometimes double what you encounter. Be mentally and physically ready to play.

      4 --- Make friends with a clock. What I mean is have a predetermined end time. It can either be a certain number of games, or a set playing time. When you hit that limit, leave. Adjust with experience, but don't push it when you are losing or winning. Reason? See Item 5

      5 --- Change is inevitable. Winning streaks end and losing streaks will break. Usually the first happens when you are desperate for just one more success and the other seems to last forever. Be ready for both and know they are a normal part of the game.

      6 --- Keep learning by reading the forum, watching a few training videos, watching a few games without playing, testing a new style in play chips, or a poker book. None of us knows everything, so keep an open mind.

      7 --- Get some help. You'll find there is a lot of companion software on the market, such as Holdem Manager, Poker Tracker, and the Indicator series out there that can offer you clues to where your game is weak. Many offer free trials, avail yourself of them.

      8 --- This is most important, have fun playing. When the game becomes a job, take a step back, stop playing for a few days, find another distraction. Unless you intend making this a full-time enterprise, too much online poker can burn you out and leave you wondering why you even started. If playing ever stops being fun, consider why you play and decide which is better, poker or real life. Personally, real life is always the better choice.

        Hi kimj16! What game are you currently playing - cash games or tournaments? Bankroll management is very important, because you can lose money just as quickly as you can make it if you have a run of bad luck.

                      Hey, I am real rookie on poker but this tip has helped me improve my game and that way bankroll too. Find stakes and game you are comfortable with. This way you focus on game improving you skills and not staring at bubble and try make it to the money. When you are comfortable and dont need to think how much this game looses to you then you get best benefits. Also join PSO leagues and any promotion where these guys from PSO play. They help you so so so much.

                        I wanted to know what stakes you are playing, because variance (how lucky/unlucky you get) can quickly make you busto if you're not careful. With $50 or so, I'd recommend you stick to 2NL cashgames (1c/2c blinds) and 25c SnGs. If you risk more than 5% of your roll on one table, and you do it a few times, you can quickly go broke just due to random luck.

                            I had been building a bankroll slowly by playing the 2/5c cash games full ring. I had made an extra deposit of 20 dollars to have a shot at the 5/10c tables. I have to admit I felt uncomfortable as the total bank roll was only 120dollars. So I lost two buy ins pretty fast and had the sense to notice I was playing very bad and quit. I Was not mentally focused on good poker decisions and was more concerned about the money I had in play. This led me to play worse and some of the choices I made were just terrible, worst poker I have ever played.

                            I am now dropping back to 2/5c until I build up to around 200-240dollars and then I will have 3 or 4 buy ins set aside for the 5/10 tables. Bankroll is more of a psychological thing I believe. It was clear I was playing above my bankroll and was nervous about decisions and made some terrible plays and calls.
