Friday, October 17th, 2008 | Poker Articles, Poker Bankroll Management | 2 Comments

Submitted by Steve, this article is part of the Poker Bankroll Management series Besides playing too many starting hands for their own good, online poker beginners usually commit another – extremely frequent – mistake: they play on bankrolls way too flimsy to support the limits on which they’re trying to make money.

Poker Bankroll

Wednesday, August 20th, 2008 | Poker Articles, Poker Bankroll Management | 1 Comment

Why do I like playing poker? Why do I spend several hours each week gazing into a computer screen watching 2 cards being dealt to me and 5 cards being dealt on the table over and over again? Why do I bother keeping detailed records of session times, rebuys and net profits?
