When playing poker for profit the goal is obviously to grow your bankroll. A key way of doing this is by playing poker online multi-table tournaments. If you are not familiar with how to play large tournaments, it is important to learn how to beat the games. To do this the best possible option is to begin playing at micro-stakes tournaments and then progress to low stakes. Pick your time of day and find your range of between 100 to 200 buy-ins in your bankroll. By doing this you can surely make steady and safe progress in building your bankroll.

Once your bankroll builds to a particular size you may move to some mid-stakes tournaments. You may find some good success at this level, but if you run into situations that cause you to question your choices it may be best to rethink your best avenue for building your bankroll. If you get into playing higher stakes with experienced players that cause you to question your abilities or give your confidence a hit take some time away from the game to gather your thoughts. Some players go tilt when they get way over their heads. Wikipedia says “tilt is a poker term for a state of mental or emotional confusion or frustration in which a player adopts a less than optimal strategy, usually resulting in the player becoming over-aggressive.”

It is obvious that if what you are doing is not proving to fulfill your goal of growing your bankroll it is time to make a change. It may surprise you that simply changing the time you choose to play poker online may make a difference. Furthermore, choosing to play tournaments with smaller player fields may give you the advantage. The key is to look for tournaments that are much softer than the highly competitive higher stakes tournaments. By playing softer tournaments you may not only gain confidence, but you may also gain some well-needed experience.

As a casual player looking to grow your bankroll and not as a player who is trying to become the best tournament player in the world your focus must be on avoiding playing tough fields, but rather finding soft fields with less variance. One of the most important decisions you can make happens before you even play the game of poker. Just as it is important in cash games to choose the correct poker table at which to sit, it is similarly important to choose the correct tournaments to play. Your bankroll as well as your state of mind will depend upon you playing in the correct tournaments.
