If anyone fancies Rickie Fowler for The Barclays this w/e the 25/1 at Corals won't last long - he's 23 at one other then down to 21s.

Hi Mate,

Welcome to blonde, you'll meet a lot of good/funny/generous people on here, give a little and you'll defo get it back  thumbs up

I'm 25 and have been playing poker full time since i was 20. I started at small stakes casino games like you are doing and played majority cash games (like you're going to do?) all that time, so a few things I've learnt along the way that might be worth considering, and btw if I'd have got this adivce 5 years ago I would have almost certainly ignored it lol.

Firstly, I think you've got to think about your bankroll strategy a bit deeper, one thing I always suspected, and now I know for defo is that you cannot make a living playing 50p/£1 in casino's or /10c online. You get swallowed up by the rake, I'd bet against anyone in the world if they could play 100,000 hands of 50p/£1 in a casino without the games being crazy deep or very low rake, that would not be winning at the end. Ivey/Trickett ANYONE. This isn't to say that you shouldn't play these games right now- you absolutely should, but if you want my opinion the way to move on and try form a sustainable way of supporting yourself through gambling then you have to be looking to get past those games ASAP. My advice would be to either;

Put your live poker bankroll into online poker, move up stakes to 25c/50c there and get some good volume in there, talk hands with anyone who will listen (post them on blonde) don't play too many tables (to keep a bit of pressure off your BR and to make sure you're REALLY focusing)

or, continue to play in the live games you are using all your BR - but try be a bit more selective about when and where you play - try joining the games later when they are a little deeper, if the games appear very shallow then don't play etc. If you go on a bit of a run in the games (which you'll need to do) then press on to slightly bigger games asap (£1/£2 often has the same rake structure in casinos) and from there you have a chance to actually make some money. Once you have enough spare BR to deposit ~$1000 online then start from 25c/50c and ^^^.

Stars is very good for game ecology and there frequent player/rakeback system is the best out there but if you're not playing enough volume at sufficient stakes then you wont feel the benefits - perhaps consider going to an ipoker skin where you can get a decent RB deal - that way even playing B/E poker you will be able to make a few hundred a month relatively risk free.

I think though the best thing to consider is that you cannot rely on i) making any money to live whilst also attempting to move up stakes in the next 6 months, and ii) the time pressure you have put/have had put on yourself is totally unfeasible, you might be a winning poker player now,you might be becoming a very good poker player that is currently without the resources to sustain a living but if the deal is "be winning by Xmas or it's over" then I'd put your chances of success at about 5% - it takes a lot of hard work, a lot of dedication and a lot of emotional development to become a winning gambler and your 6 month time limit will prolly be your biggest hindrance. In my opinion. You'll prolly find it damages your enjoyment a bit as well.

I'd prolly look to try get a part time job, preferably doing something that interests you, that way you can support yourself outside of poker winnings, meaning the money you win can be invested into your bankroll and give you the best possible chance of succeeding, and it'll be a good compromise with your parents as you can say "look im trying both things and seeing which I like better" and then you won't be getting hassle from them when December comes along and now you're gonna have to try spin up to £5k just so you can get another couple of months without aggro (I been there, trust me!!!)

Oh, also - play a couple of tournaments on a sunday, loads of huge field small buy-in stuff (Big$11, Sunday Storm, $3rebuy etc) which won't affect your BR too much but will give you an (outside, but legitimate) chance of a score for a couple of grand which will really spurt your bankroll on. Remember those this is pretty thin punting for the most part so don't expect anything from it!

GL with it all anyways.

David

Great advice there Kingpush.  Listen to Dave.  He has been there and done everything you strive to do.  GL bud all the best.

Everything Dave said except the bit about him being 25. He trys to get away with it as he loks it but he's pushing 30 for sure.

5 fig makeup totes standard teeks!

I've ran well to have never been in too much given what I play. But better players who play lower stakes have got in more than that and out again multiple times over!

Well yes, I suppose so, but my point was not that, it was the fear of getting out of make up that had me scratching my head in the specific cases I alluded to.

Even so, try explaiing 5 figure make-up to a non poker player, or a random in Tesco, & you'll get some funny looks.

Why would anyone fear getting out of make up?

Fear of being "dropped" by their backer, apparently, as Dubai explained 2 pages back.....

"....Will explain why a horse is worth more to a backer when he has higher makeup than none tho- it's the opposite of the real world, worse you are doing the more value you have to the "company (backer)" and more demands you can make

Reason is- when a player has 0 makeup and is on a long term 50/50 deal- the first tournament he plays it's the equivalent of the backer paying 2.0 for shares in that tournament. However if a player has 100k makeup and first prize is 100k, then it's the equivalent of the backer buying shares at spot aka 1.0 in they tournament. Therefore theoretically the higher the players makeup in relation to the tournament prize pool, the better the investment appears as a one off for the backer


Which is why people get let go when they clear makeup, as it's the point they are worth the least to their backer...."


No good asking me to explain, it's all a bit over my heads, but Dubai, who may have a smidge of experience in these things, will explain properly, I'm quite sure.

I get that part but whilst they are so heavily in make up and they never clear it, then they never earn anything and all they do is service the debt for no reward.

Cheers lil Dave really appreciate it mate. Agree with you on pretty much everything. Not going  to get a part time job as still doing uni until the end of the year but if I don't have enough to play 1/2 then or be backed then I'll get a part time job. At the moment though I can live off my loan.

On moving up stakes online I've lost chunks at nl50 on ipoker and stars recently that's why o started at nl5 and just proving to myself o can beat every limit before moving up and playing higher. I may be costing myself money but from my exp I'm saving myself money by doing so.

I'd like to get your thoughts on bankroll strategy for my current br(~1200) what would you be buying on for at .50/1?  and also thoughts on getting staked and the pros and cons?
