Champ or Loser

November 9th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

With out knowing the exact facts, it’s simple to categorize gamblers into 3 categories:

  • Big Winner
  • Small Loser/Winner
  • Big Loser

The massive mass of the gamblers is, of course, in the last category, "Big Loser". I would say that about 90-95 per cent 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 10 dollars and comes out with 20 dollars, so his or hers net earnings is 100 %. That being said, the difference involving a "Big Winner" as well as a "Big Loser" may be quite small.

Let’s say you are a small stake Texas hold em gambler, your internet revenue monthly is about five per-cent of the bank roll. So when you started out with a deposit of one hundred dollars, first month you’d probably go five dollars which would rise your bankroll to one hundred and five dollars, next 30 days $110.5 and so on. To go from one hundred dollars to 200 dollars takes in between 13 – 14 months if your net revenue is five per-cent per month. What about when you started out with 200 dollars? In thirteen to fourteen months, starting with two hundred dollars and a net revenue of 5 per cent monthly, you’ll have in between $380 – $400 in bank roll.

This is another example, but here your web revenue is -5 percent per 30 days and your deposit was one hundred dollars. Right after a year, your bankroll would have gone down to $50-$55, which is virtually fifty per cent of your beginning bank roll. Lets now say that you got a bonus of 100 dollars, so your beginning bank roll would be two hundred dollars with the same internet revenue every month. Immediately after a year now, you’d probably still have 108 dollars.

This is why bonuses are so important 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".
