Champion or Loser

Without knowing the exact facts, it’s easy to categorize gamblers into three categories:

  • Big Winner
  • Small Loser/Winner
  • Big Loser

The huge mass of the gamblers is, of course, in the last class, "Big Loser". I would say that about ninety to ninety-five percent of the gamblers fits into this category. When reading "Big" you ought to read it as percent of the money won or lost. Even if someone just plays for $10 for his or hers entire life, wins and doubles it, is really a "Big Winner". You see, the individual wagers 10 dollars and comes out with $20, so his or hers web profit is 100 per cent. That being said, the difference amongst a "Big Winner" plus a "Big Loser" can be very small.

Let’s say you are a tiny stake Texas hold’em player, your net revenue per month is about five percent of one’s bankroll. So should you started out with a deposit of 100 dollars, initial calendar month you’d go five dollars which would rise your bankroll to $105, next thirty day period 110 dollars.five and so on. To go from one hundred dollars to $200 takes in between 13 – 14 months if your internet revenue is five per cent every month. What about when you started out with $200? In thirteen to fourteen months, beginning with two hundred dollars along with a web revenue of 5 % per month, you would have in between $380 – four hundred dollars in bank roll.

This is another example, but here your internet profit is -5 per-cent per month and your deposit was one hundred dollars. Following a year, your bank roll would have gone down to fifty to fifty-five, which is almost fifty percent of one’s starting bank roll. Lets now say that you got a bonus of 100 dollars, so your beginning bank roll would be 200 dollars with the exact same net profit per month. Soon after a yr now, you would still have one hundred and eight.

This is why bonuses are so vital when you begin building your bank roll. Bonuses can turn a "Big Loser" into a "Small Winner", or a "Small Loser" into a "Big Winner".
