      Hi everyone, im new to the site but not to poker, been playin online tournaments at low stakes (from $2-$20) for about a year and a half and low to mid stakes (from £10-40) live for about a year . Most of my success has came in the live games doing well in my local casino and the bars around here that have poker nights. i must note that im a tournament and sit n go player as it seems to be my bread and butter, as they say, and havnt done too well in the ring games. Although i have still never played a live ring game.

      i have one big problem when it comes to poker though and its bankroll management, anytime i get a nice win i usually withdraw (if its online) or just spend it on a good nite out or whatever i might need at the time which in turn keeps me at small stakes.

      And thanks to a dumbass boss i have alot more time on my hands now (his company went busto after hiring any breathing thing that came through his door). So im going to start from scratch with poker, starting at bankroll management! lol i will be using the $50 starting capital at BetFred poker and reading a lot of articles and watching a lot of videos to hopefully get me off the ground.

      Anyways i should be on the forum quite often and hope to get to know some of you guys a bit better. And as part of my 1st post i wanted to share a hand that i played recently at my local casino in a £30 freezeout to see what you guys think.

      1st Hand Evaluation...a little insight please

      Hi ghostminer,

      Welcome in the community. We are here to help you the improve your skills in order to build a bankroll. I can recommend several things:

      1. Play according to the bankroll management. This is the most important point. I saw a lot of players going broke, because they didn't stick to it.
      2. Read all available articles.
      3. Stay active in the forum, which means: ask questions whenever you have some.
      4. Post in our hand analysis boards (Fixed-Limit / No-Limit / SNG)!
      5. Watch videos and visit coachings.

      If you really do these things, you will be a winning player who climbs up the limits.

      Best regards,
