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

  • Big Winner
  • Small Loser/Winner
  • Big Loser

The major mass of the gamblers is, of course, in the last category, "Big Loser". I would say that about ninety to ninety-five percent of the gamblers fits into this category. When reading "Big" you really should 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 a "Big Winner". You see, the person wagers ten dollars and comes out with 20 dollars, so his or hers net revenue is one hundred percent. That being said, the difference involving a "Big Winner" plus a "Big Loser" might be very small.

Let us say you are a small stake Hold’em player, your internet earnings each month is about 5 per-cent of your bank roll. So if you started with a deposit of one hundred dollars, initial thirty day period you’ll go $5 which would rise your bank roll to 105 dollars, next month $110.5 and so on. To go from $100 to $200 takes involving thirteen to fourteen months if your web revenue is 5 % every month. What about in case you started out with $200? In 13 – 14 months, beginning with $200 as well as a internet earnings of 5 per-cent per thirty days, you’d have among $380 – $400 in bankroll.

This is another example, except here your web earnings is -5 percent each month and your deposit was 100 dollars. After a year, your bank roll would have gone down to fifty to fifty-five, which is nearly fifty per-cent of the starting bankroll. Lets now say that you got a bonus of one hundred dollars, so your starting bankroll would be 200 dollars with the exact same internet earnings every month. Right after a year now, you would still have $108.

This is why bonuses are so vital 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".
