Casual poker players usually don’t think much about bankroll management. They have income from somewhere else, so they have enough to play poker or not. In addition, they usually don’t track their winning and losing sessions so they don’t really know how much it costs them to play poker in the long run.
The simple fact is that if you are a losing player, it doesn’t happen no matter how big your bankroll is because it will never be enough. Once you start playing break even poker, you may have a bank account big enough to handle the natural fluctuations, but do you have any idea how big it needs to be?
The answer depends on many things, including your overall skill set and the natural variations of the poker game you play, but the most important thing is to make sure you have enough to play without worrying about it in any lucrative game that presents itself.
Advantage professional players try to accumulate a large enough bankroll so that they can play in any game where they can find an edge.
Your goal needs to be the same for your deuce to seven triple draw game. If you ever have to think about the size of your bankroll while playing, you need to play at a lower level.
Controlling your words
When you bet and raise you also indicate a strong hand.
On the other hand, if you draw two or more cards, it indicates you have a weak hand and are trying to improve at least two cards.
It’s hard not to give away information in these instances, but in other areas you can protect some of your information.
It does no good to bet and raise aggressively and then buy two or more cards. Your opponents know that your hand needs a big help when you draw two or more cards, so why do you waste your money betting like a maniac?
What hands might your opponent have that you can win?
If they didn’t draw in the final round the worst hand they are likely to have is a small pair, but usually they will have a low set, even if it is high.
But, bad players tend to bluff all the time, so if your opponent isn’t very good, it’s hard to tell what they hold. They could easily be on a two-round bluff, showing strength by not drawing when they have a weak hand.
A strong player could also be acting the way they are because you have shown weakness and they are playing you instead of the cards.
Two for seven triple draw offers an interesting change of pace to the same old Texas Hold’em games that seem to dominate poker rooms.
It’s a game where good players can quickly take advantage of weaker players, which can make it more profitable than Texas hold’em for some players.
