There is always something poker related no matter where we turn these days. We hear all of the time of these young kids making crazy money whether it’s on TV, in magazines or at a local bar.You may have heard one of these stories and thought to yourself, “I’m sick of playing my $1, $2 or $10 buy in levels. I want to start making some real cash.” Unfortunately it’s for this reason why so many players fail at poker. They want to move up too quickly when they don’t have the necessary experience or proper poker bankroll.
SO HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN YOU CAN MOVE UP TO THE NEXT LEVEL?
The answer is really simple. Your poker bankroll will let you know.No I don’t mean your bankroll will actually talk to you, but if you are following strict bankroll requirements (I always recommend 2% of bankroll per buy in) then you know when it will be time to move up. Here’s an example:
Let’s say you have a bankroll of $1000. Then your Sit N Go (SNG) buy in amount should be $20. Play these games until your poker bankroll has increased to $1500. Now you can increase to the thirty dollar games. If you remain successful just rinse and repeat.If you actually ever drop below the $1500 level all you have to do is go back to playing the $20 games. Contrary to what a lot of people think, moving down levels is not failing. You can continue to improve your game and learn until you move through that level and beyond.
If you continue to follow this model and move up and down when you bankroll requires it you will virtually remove all possibilities of going broke. It will also advise you of when you can comfortably move up to the next level of buy ins. Once you build up to the higher levels, you will be amazed by the amounts of money you can earn.
