Reloading to the max enables you to win the max possible amount from other players. If you think you have an edge over others at the table, you should be happy to have the largest possible amount of chips in front of you. When you first sit at a table or whenever you sink below that max buy-in threshold, you should want to top off your stack. On the other ...

In general, I don't think there should be lots of changes. If you have x dollars in your bankroll now, and if you have the financial situation where you can afford to add y dollars per month to your roll over z months, then your virtual bankroll z months in the future is x + yz. You still need honestly to assess your win rate and variance to know whether ...

If it doesn't cost you anything to withdraw or deposit (no fees), I don't see any benefit of keeping a large bankroll online. Plus it could be a form of money management by keeping a % of your bankroll on a site. If you bust and can't buy in over and over, it will force you to take a break by redepositing and hopefully getting of tilt.

I used to have my bankroll split between various sites and my winning on MoneyBookers (called "Skrill" nowadays). Then I ended up keeping my bankroll mostly on one big site and withdrawing my winnings to my bank account. A huge problem with splitting on different sites is that it's great while your clear bonuses (and reload bonuses) but besides that, it's ...

This is a very good question. There have been inside cheats at poker rooms and of course there is Ultimate Bet failing when Online poker was decimated with the passing of the port Authority act in 2006. UB did not have enough money to cover withdrawals because deposits were not fenced and the money had been used by owners and sponsored players for other ...

It's true that so-called "action flops" can increase the size of pots and therefore increase the rake dropped for each hand. It's also true that there is the potential for financial gain to be had for a poker site in tweaking the "luck" that certain classes of players have on a site. But... these are hard problems. How do you inject action flops into your ...

I think it was Mason Malmouth who wrote an article about "The Silly Subject of Bankroll", I paraphrase. In the old days when the game of choice was big blind Texas Hold'em for professional players the benchmark was 300 big blinds was a adequate bankroll that would allow a player a 95% margin for not going broke with standard deviation. (Big Blind hold'em is ...

If you can learn patience and the ability to fold small hands to postflop raises then you will be far ahead of most microstakes players when you decide to play for real money.

For cash games, when you feel you are by far the best player at the table, you can start playing for real money. Repeat this step on real money tables as well. What I think is interesting are the freeroll tournaments. I really learned a lot by doing this. You will learn playing in position, playing with your stacksize, adapting to new blind levels and so ...

Obviously it is not that good of an idea. Better go to a bank and let your money grow there. However, as a European guy, I have thought about this as well. Since on most poker sites, everything is stored as dollars, you could basically deposit an amount when the euro/dollar ration is low and then withdraw your money when the ratio changes in a positive way. ...

I would say you should only keep on there, what you don't mind losing, just in case anything was ever to go wrong. I would also stick to the bigger sites to be honest, less chance of them going broke etc. When i win big i tend to take at least half of it out and pay off some bills etc.
