But you should be comparing solid information grounded in actual company data against firmly established metrics. Some people compare their performance against established pros. This is a common mistake. You might read that an average pro plays 23 percent of pots, and you only play 15 percent. You tell yourself, “I should be playing more pots. ” You start playing more hands, and pretty soon you’re finding yourself in positions you’re not comfortable playing. Let your game evolve and expand at its own pace.

There’s no perfect answer for everybody, because everyone’s financial picture is different. You might have extenuating circumstances where you really need the money, which is totally understandable. Again, we get back to looking at this as a business. Statistics say that most businesses don’t make money for five years. We don’t want that, of course, so let’s reduce that figure to one year. We won’t expect our poker business to make money for one year, so for that period, you will not take money out of your poker account.

It’s my fault. ” Nothing could be less true. Great poker players can go 100,000 hands or more and not make money. The newer you are to the game, the harder it is to deal with variance because you have a much smaller sample size.
