No matter how good a player you are, failing to follow the rules of capital management will bankrupt you. A poker player's capital does not build up overnight, so the basic rule in poker is to manage your capital properly.
So how much do you think poker professionals recommend investing in a poker tournament based on the amount of capital ? 🙂
Answer: 2 %
For example. If you have $100 in your poker account, don't play the more expensive $2 tournaments. If you have $200 in capital, invest no more than $4 in a tournament. If you have $150, invest no more than $3 and so on. Well, I think you get the idea.
