How to Become a Professional Poker Player

40

There are a few things that you must know before jumping on the green felt for a career. First, you have to make sure you have a large enough bankroll (and are willing to put that money on the line) for the long downswings that you will inevitably face. There isn’t one online poker player at DominoQQ that has ever been able to beat lady luck, and that’s just one factor that you’re going to have to accept. That said, I do believe that if played right, poker is not the most difficult game in the world to make a profit off of. I personally do not play professionally, but I do play for recreational money and can honestly say that I have never made a deposit after my initial start-up. That brings me to my next topic on bankroll management.

Bankroll Management

Probably more important than knowing how to play the game is knowing how to properly manage your money. Whether you’re a beginning poker player or a seasoned veteran, one thing every successful player has in common is the ability to know when to move down a buy-in. However, due to the excessive downswings that you may ensue, sometimes playing the odds and proper bankroll management just may not be enough to keep you from going bust. As legendary poker players might be, even players such as Phil Ivey and Doyle Brunson have gone bankrupt at one point or another. That said, with the internet poker that is currently available, the ability to play millions of other people within seconds has definitely changed the game for the better.

Patience Is The Key

After you’ve mastered bankroll management, are aware of the luck factor, and have the appropriate bankroll, there is still one more thing you need to remember. That is that you can never play on tilt while you have money at stake on any table. While it is human nature to become absolutely flustered and tempered at how horrible some people play, you must always remember to keep a cool head. If you find it impossible to do that, then you have to take yourself away for a little while to cool off (or maybe go to the penny table and blow off a little steam). Either way, just remember that if it wasn’t for those kinds of players, there’d be no easy way to get your money back after a long downswing. Good luck and see you at the tables!
