Playing poker is risky business. For some, it can mean ending up in serious debt while others make a decent living by playing poker each day. The difference between the first and the second is knowing your limits.
There are different levels of poker for a reason. When a beginner walks into a high limits game, the veterans see a walking bag of cash for the taking. Don’t be the fool who plays a higher limit game than their skill level allows. Playing higher limits is often done to impress someone, but not only is this a horrible reason to play high limits, it will also not impress them when you lose and fail miserably. The only reason you should ever move up to a higher level is because you’ve been winning regularly at the lower levels and your skill level will allow you to move up without losing too much. This counts for situs poker online as well. Just because the game is online, doesn’t mean the money isn’t real. Losing a bunch of money at a higher level will definitely be something you regret later on.
Always try to be the most skilled player at the table. This means, don’t move up to a higher level because you keep winning at a lower level table. Firstly, why would you want to move? You’re winning money each night. Keep in mind that the skill level of the players at the higher level tables will be much higher than the opponents that you are used to. The stakes are also much higher which means that losing has more dire consequences than it would have at the lower level tables. Rather win small and consistently than lose big most of the time and win big sometimes.
