Having got my BR back in business got me thinking, what size is the typical BR, at least here at the PSO.

Mine currently stands at $229.04.

Now you know how big mine is, how big is yours? Don't be shy now

I think a person's current bankroll is less important than their TOTAL INVESTMENT in PokerStars. Theory is that most players are losing players, so a bankroll could represent what is left from a person's deposit, or it could be all profits.

My bankroll is small, BUT, I have never made a deposit! You could say my bankroll represents an "infinite" profit over my investment of $0.00. Now, if I had purchased shares in Facebook last Friday, I would be a lot poorer today, by 20%. I'll stick with poker.

0.00$ as of earlier this morning. 1 day I will learn that playing when I have friends over that like to include themself in my tournaments isnt good and I wont bust a 25$ deposit in 2 hours. Care to give me a little help until my next deposit? I will give it back don't worry. A looney would be just fine you know lol.

Honest

Well if you want to know I made a $50 dollar deposit about 6 months ago or so (don't really remember when) and I've been as high as $64 but right now its about $60. Just having fun with it.

I believe you. If I could stick to basic discipline I know I could last for a longtime with a 50-100 deposit. I just need to enjoy playing alone.relaxed without any distraction. For some reasons I get bored just playing 1 table but all my winnings we're made like that. Oh and stop playing when i'm too tired.

So until payday I'll be even more bored. unless someones feels like donating a buck or 2 :p

In exchange I'll will offer my bracelet

I used to have the exact same problem as you math, until this bankroll i did not know what to do with it because i constantly used to lose all my money simply because i didnt follow bankroll management

You'll hear all poker players and coaches say just follow strict bankroll management but i don't think it's all about that.....obviously it is to a certain degree and i am currently following that management...but i also have some money on the side on stars so i can set myself some challenges to keep it fun and interesting.

If you follow me on PSO you'll know that i set myself a lot of goals and challenges, i set challenges like playing tournament series with a set roll to start with......like recently i played the PSO Series of Poker with $10 and would not spend any more than that and its what i could afford I also like to take sit n go challenges like the cowboy challenge which you can check out on the "challenges and battleground" forum.

I think the main thing is to control your roll....no pun intended :P but keep yourself interested too by mixing it up...but only what you can afford

I deposited $30 at the start of the year and it is now $210 and i've never looked like losing it

hope this helps.
