Most people do not understand that to be profitable online, you need to gain experience by playing REAL money cash games, not play money. Who cares when you’re playing cash games to go all in with AJ, 54, 98, 27, etc… when you can just reload your play chips right away if you lose? There is no point in playing for play money, the only true way to gain a grasp on online poker is to play for real money. When playing for real money it is extremely important to develop a cash game strategy to make you a stable income day after day and month after month. When you are playing cash games you can go from zero to hero in a few hands. In interesting fact that you may want to know is that the largest online poker pot ever won in a cash game was slightly over $375K. Could you imagine this type of hand? If you don’t believe me go to YouTube and type in largest online poker pot and you will see it. It was sick and worth more than a house! I couldn’t imagine winning that much but I can imagine winning 10K+ a month, my current average salary.
Earning 10K a month just buy playing cash games online is a nice feat, especially when you understand that it is more than 100K a year! My goal when I first started playing cash games was just to make 100 dollars a day. I accomplished this goal in the first two weeks, not by luck but by having the kind of patience it takes to win cash games. My best profit use to come by playing a waiting game instead of getting impatient and playing rags. The most deadly hand in poker has to be a poker set. With a straight or a flush you can see it out there, not with a set especially if your opponent is holding 2 over cards. That is how pocket AA’s, KK’s, QQ’s get cracked because they are just too hard to fold when it comes a rainbow J 2 9 flop. Your sitting there holding pocket 22’s licking your lips. Depending on what stakes you are playing at, you just made some great profit. In whatever you decide to do, I wish you the best of luck in your future poker career.
