Building your Online Poker Bankroll
With the huge increase that we’ve seen in poker over the past few years, more players than ever are rushing to play online texas holdem. And I don’t blame them either since there’s so much money to be won through online holdem. But chances are that if you’re just starting out, you don’t have a whole lot of poker cash at this point. So here’s a few tips for building your bankroll in the beginning…..
The first thing I’d like to mention is that you should read poker reviews to find out what online poker rooms offer the weakest competition. The more fish there are at a poker room, the easier it is to build your bankroll….or at least avoid losing money.
Another thing you should do is play in as many freerolls as possible. Freerolls don’t cost any money to enter, so it’s like you’re being given a free chance to make money. With this being the case, there will be more players competing for the prize money, but freerolls are still worth it in order to build your bankroll.
You should also learn as much poker strategy as possible because the better you are in the beginning, the quicker you’ll build a sizeable bankroll. The best ways to learn poker strategy include reading articles, watching videos, and reading books. My favorite poker pros to learn from are Phil Hellmuth and Daniel Negreanu, so keep this in mind if you decide to buy any books.
One more great way to increase your bankroll is by taking advantage of all of the bonuses that poker rooms offer. Signing up for the initial deposit bonus is a must since this will earn you lots of money in the early stages of your online poker career. Rakeback is another good thing to sign up for because it’s like a discount on the rake you pay poker rooms.
If you follow the aforementioned advice, you’ll be able to keep increasing your bankroll and eventually show some nice profits over time.
