HOW TO BUILD MY ONLINE BANKROLL

Postby yiip » Mon Dec 20, 2010 8:37 pm

Hi. guys. I'm a pretty advanced solid live cash game player and i've been grinding medium stakes cash games from .25/.50 up to 1/2 in UK casinos for about a year. However, i realised that my online game is pretty weak as i do go on tilt more often than not due to the amount of hands played online and the variance involved. Since coming back to malaysia, i've resorted to playing home games and right now i'm successfully generating a positive win rate playing with a group of fishes. However, i would love to start of at pokerstars with a 250$ bankroll. What do the learned members of pokerkaki suggest i should play? i'm not a tournament of sng person, preferring cash games. Basically i've not started online poker seriously, more often than not pumping in 10$ and throwing it on the table at on go and trying to run it up or just prolly go bust. What micro stakes should i be starting of and how many tables should be suitable? Also, as we all know the variance involved in online poker is pretty sick. set over sets, kings into aces and shit like that happen everytime. From my experience, i've always ran good prolly like up to 3 times my buy in on a cash game table and then lose a big chunk of it to a bad beat or a cold deck eg. boat over boat situation. When would be the right time to leave a cash game table? Is it measured by the number of hands played or the profit generated? Any tips/ideas on how i should start of to build my bankroll would be appreciated. thanks.

You probably provided your own solution already.

Play Cash games

What micro stakes should i be starting of and how many tables should be suitable?:

Whatever stakes you can buy in for , One table to start things off.

You should play @ the table when you can exploit the others on the table . You should leave when they exploit you more then you exploit them

hey thanks for the tips.i'm currently two tabling .10/.25 on stars at the 50BB tables. Do you its the right move for my bankroll? atm i can cope with 4 tables however playing too many tables at one go drives me nuts when i receive a bad beat lol. How do you cope with a bad run? whats the appropriate time to take off from online poker if u run bad? i take like a week off from live games if i run bad. Furthermore, when pro's say that you need at least 20 times the buy in at a table, are they talking bout ONE table or the number of tables you're playing X20 each?

the smaller the buy ins , the tendency is the softer the players @ the table ( the 20-50 < 40-100 < 250bb tables)
Play at one table , question your every move , what is the most profitable against who with what stacks in what position against what image etc.
You shouldn't be coping , but observing their tendencies and thinking a lot. (e.g.he is addicted to flush draws and will min raise with a FD IP he did it 3 times and is likely going to repeat it , so i would b/3b him when the board texture has 2 similar suit cards on board. On the turn i would comfortably bet a huge amount if the flush doesn't appear and confidently check/fold if the flush does appear)

You must be able to recognise if you run bad(good decision bad beat) or play bad (bad decision). When i do go on tilt , i just get off the game , the game is always there @ micro stakes , your A game isn't.

the 20 BI is a general guide i guess. Try to have at least 8 buy in for one table you open , like if you open 4 tables = 32 BI , 9 tables = 72 BI.

Less BI = aggressive bankroll management , chance to go broke is much higher too.
More BI = less aggressive bankroll management , chance to go broke is lesser too.

At the micros , its perfectly alright to have like only 5 BI ( e.g. @ 10NL) cos if you really do go broke , you can use your real life income to reload.
but at the higher stakes , when it >> (much more then) your real life income e.g. you are earning 2K / month but playing at say 3/6 , the bankroll is much harder to replace.

e.g. of an online bankroll management
@ 5NL i will have 2BI / table
@ 10NL i will have 5BI/table
@ 25 NL i will have 7BI/table
@ 50 NL i will have 9BI/table
@ 100 NL i will have 11 BI/table.
