Posted on May 18th 2008  -  Subject: How do you win money?
this has probably been posted a million times, but what is the absolute best way to win money?  What is the key? Picking tables to how to play at certain tables. Im a patient player who can majority of the time end up in paying positions for sit and goes and can usually leave cash games up... but no matter how much I slowly work my way up to I end up hitting a bad luck streak that puts me back at even again... something isnt working... so what is the best way be as simple or indepth as you wish im all ears.
Sniffin' out the game... one hand at a time

For me its was being more greedy. Before I became greedy I would bet small for fear of losing and was often beaten by better hands as a result also I stopped leaving the table when I was 10%-20% up now I leave at least 50% or more up preferably 100%+ and the extra cash I'm winning is covering my bad periods. Of course now I face the other side being TOO greedy but its all a matter of balance.

There is no good way to earn money. You have to be lucky. Poker is like casino. You only have the illusion that you can be good. Everybody plays to win but only the luckiest ones will win. So if you win a lot, just withdraw it cause you won't have to say yes that youre money will have dissapeared. If there is one key( the only way to hope to win money at poker is great bankroll management) . Don't buy in in any tourney that is over 2% of your bankroll and the same applies for cash games. It seems very small when youre playing but its the best way to earn money in a long time period.

Well, winning at poker is mainly about your discipline as a poker player, your poker education and the time you spend playing. For discipline, you have to be a patient player, play the stakes your bankroll allow, be focus when playing, leave table when you're tilting and allways seek to learn more and more. Watch other players, evaluathow they played their hand, if it was very well then you should try learning something out of it. If you think you played some hand wrong, post in foruns so other players can correct in case you did something wrong. For poker eduction you should read some books, strategy guides and apply what you've learned from them, learn the mathematical part of poker even so it might be boring, learn the odds in and out and don't play against them, figure your game, what starting hands to raise or fold from each position, how to adapt your game to other players and table, how to table select and take most advantage of rocks, manics and stations. There are a bunch of concepts that you should learn, the more your knowledge the better your results, internet is there to help you from begginer to expert player, use it! To low stakes players, the best strategy is tight aggressive where you wait patiently for premium hands and play them aggressivly to max your winnings due to low skilled players that call down to often. You will get sucked out sometimes but in the long run you'll be a winner. To mid-high stakes you should have your own game figured out, and learn how to adapt to other players, how to use deception as a weapon, read your opponents and alot more. Far from that, hit the tables, nothing can beat experience! you can know everything there is to know about poker but, without experience you won't do much and you can learn pretty much everything about poker with just experience, lots of hours playing and a few time studying some concepts.

At the lower stakes just play good solid poker. Don't try and bluff big pots or make donks fold their top pair on a 4 suited and straight board, because they won't. Don't tilt and don't make fishy plays when your not geitting hands.

U are doing something right by picking your table but everyone else is going to try & get on that table as well because they see it as a chance to win some cash so sometimes the tbale may be on the verge of drying up. My only advise of ending up even is that you have a bankroll that can cope with it, with bad streaks there comes good streaks & thats when you make a progession in you bankroll. Patience I find is the key to playing cash tables, I could be a few BB down on a cash table looking to come off when the BB gets to me & can win a big hand on the last hand to end up in profit quite nicely.
Go all in I tell you

Good bankroll management is essential in order to make money, and that can mean hovering around freerolls and the low limit tables in order to get going. Patience is a poker virtue :)
