When you play games for cash, you need to find a game where you can make plenty of money in which you control your own destiny.

The only game that truly allows you to control your own destiny is playing online poker for money. When playing poker, you need to definitely play cash games. They are one of the most profitable gambling opportunities out there and just in no time you can be making 52 dollars or more playing cash games online.
I started out playing free online poker. I played for PLAY money chips to gain experience. Honestly, I really wasn’t gaining experience as many players playing for play money DO NOT TAKE IT SERIOUSLY. They will go all in with middle pair, bottom pair, 2 6 off suit, 3 7 off suit, etc… I have seen it all. If you play at the play money table and start winning, please do not get over confident. People at this level are horrible and just don’t care. When there is nothing at stake, everyone’s game completely changes. I finally started gaining a bunch of experience the second I deposited real money. I didn’t make the mistake many poker players make by jumping right into a cash game to high for their bankroll. If you deposit 50 dollars, you need to stick to .10/.25 cent blinds, not depositing 50 dollars and playing 1 / 2 dollar no limit. It happens all the time and I see it every single day! Do not fall victim to this! Most people think they can jump right into a poker game to high for their bankroll in hopes of doubling up. The only thing you will double up is your deposit charge. It is a BIG mistake to have a mindset of thinking you must double up so quickly. .10/.25 is a reasonable level for 50 dollars and you should stick to that level until you at least have $100.00 in your bankroll. Bankroll management is one of the most important factors to your success. It is often overlooked and when it is indeed overlooked, you fail.
