bankroll managementHaving cash to bet in your poker game is vital. Without anything to lay down on the table, you will not be able to win any money back at all. Keeping your bankroll constant is a very important part of playing poker.

Make sure you have a high enough bankroll for the category that you are gambling in. A good idea is to have enough cash in your bankroll to cover at least 50, if not 100 hands.
