Bankroll Management Tutorial

Bankroll management can be the difference between profiting from playing your "A" game to going completely broke. Even the best players in the world will have their fair share of losing sessions, but if you manage your finances correctly, you can always bounce back.

In order to stay in the game you should never risk more bankroll than you can afford to lose. Serious players divide their bankroll in to buy-ins, allowing them to have losing sessions but enough bankroll to carry on playing. When their poker funds dip below a certain level, they will drop down in stakes in order to maintain the minimum level of buy-ins.

This video recaps the lesson on good bankroll management. The exercise below tests your knowledge on the subject.
