How to improve poker profits

This is probably one of the most sought after question in online poker: how to improve your profits.

Depending on how committed you are to poker and how much time you have, you will give more or less thoughts to this question. Some casual players with deep pockets will not worry too much about it as they mostly like online poker for the excitement it offers and for the wild adrenalin rush. But on the other hand there are some young kids who do not like to go to school or to work, and for them it would be fantastic to find a way to solve online poker so to speak, in other word a way to make money consistently at it. So first of all everyone is different and it depends on your personality and specific situation. But there are always basic avenues of thoughts, as explained below.

First of all you need to play at the poker room that fits you best and offers the best online poker bonus, promotions or VIP program. Use all possible means to boost your results. So for example if you sign up at pokerstars they give you a 100% bonus up to $600. This offer is only available when you get started and it is on top of everything else offered. Therefore you should ideally deposit the entire $600 and grind your $600 bonus. Your bankroll is very safe at stars, so you can always cash out later if you do not need that much money in your account. Note that their VIP Club is second to none.

Another important thing to consider is what type of games you are best at. Every player is different and it is a matter of personality. The three main formats are ring games, sit’n gos and multi-table tournaments (MTT). The optimal strategy is different for each format and it is better to get specialized in one form in order to make the most money. The only way to find out is by trying, so try many different game types when you start playing online poker and see for yourself what works best for you. Also the poker variation that you play matters.

Nowadays the majority of players like Texas Holdem, but there are other poker variants such as PLO, Omaha 8, HORSE or Stud poker where you may win more profits because there are more fish in these games. So keep on testing and improve your profits while learning.
