Winner or Loser

[ English ]

Without knowing the exact facts, it’s easy to categorize gamblers into 3 categories:

  • Big Winner
  • Small Loser/Winner
  • Big Loser

The big mass of the gamblers is, of course, in the last class, "Big Loser". I would say that about ninety to ninety-five % of the gamblers fits into this category. When reading "Big" you need to read it as percent of the money won or lost. Even if someone just plays for ten dollars for his or hers entire life, wins and doubles it, is really a "Big Winner". You see, the individual bets ten dollars and comes out with 20 dollars, so his or hers internet profit is one hundred %. That being said, the distinction in between a "Big Winner" and a "Big Loser" could be quite small.

Let’s say you’re a little stake Hold’em player, your net profit per thirty days is about five % of one’s bank roll. So if you began with a deposit of $100, first 30 days you would go five dollars which would rise your bank roll to one hundred and five dollars, next thirty day period $110.5 and so on. To go from 100 dollars to two hundred dollars takes among 13 – 14 months if your net earnings is five per cent per month. What about in case you started with two hundred dollars? In 13 – 14 months, beginning with $200 and a web earnings of 5 per cent per 30 days, you’d have in between $380 – $400 in bankroll.

This is another example, but here your web revenue is -5 per-cent per 30 days and your deposit was $100. Following a year, your bankroll would have gone down to $50-$55, which is almost 50 per cent of the starting bankroll. Lets now say that you got a bonus of one hundred dollars, so your beginning bankroll would be two hundred dollars with the exact same web profit per month. Following a yr now, you’ll still have $108.

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