Champ or Loser

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

  • Big Winner
  • Small Loser/Winner
  • Big Loser

The massive mass of the gamblers is, of course, in the last class, "Big Loser". I would say that about ninety to ninety-five per cent 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 dollars for his or hers entire life, wins and doubles it, is a "Big Winner". You see, the person bets $10 and comes out with $20, so his or hers web profit is one hundred per cent. That being said, the distinction between a "Big Winner" plus a "Big Loser" can be quite small.

Let’s say you’re a small stake Texas hold’em gambler, your web profit monthly is about 5 % of one’s bank roll. So in case you started out with a deposit of 100 dollars, first month you would go $5 which would rise your bankroll to $105, next 30 days $110.5 and so on. To go from $100 to two hundred dollars takes involving thirteen to fourteen months if your net revenue is five percent every month. What about should you started with $200? In 13 – 14 months, starting with 200 dollars as well as a web earnings of five per-cent each month, you’ll have among three hundred and eighty dollars – $400 in bank roll.

This is another example, but here your web earnings is -5 percent each month and your deposit was $100. Following a year, your bankroll would have gone down to $50-$55, which is virtually fifty per cent of your starting bank roll. Lets now say that you got a bonus of $100, so your starting bank roll would be 200 dollars with the exact same net revenue per month. Soon after a year now, you’ll still have one hundred and eight.

This is why bonuses are so important 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".
