I hate to be the bearer of bad news,
but the odds are stacked against you.
You won t be the next World Series

even win $5,000.
The Wall Street Journal issued a
report detailing an incredible amount
of data on 4,222 gamblers, released
to Harvard Medical School researchers
via the popular European gambling
website Bwin.Party Digital Entertain-
ment. It found that in the casino
games offered on the site, 95 percent
of the players lost money. Some lost
a lot of it, with losers of $5,000 or
more outnumbering the big winners
of that same margin by 128 to 1. Yikes.
We all know that poker is a game
of skill. There's no embedded house
advantage; the money is player versus
player. In the poker-only part of the
database, only 10 percent of the play-
ers made money. And to further prove
that poker is a game in which the
best players win the most money, the
majority of the profits were enjoyed
by just one-third of the site's most
Sometimes the best approach is

Don t get felted: There's no shame
in losing your opening buy-in in a
cash game. Cooler hands and bad
luck that is out of your control hap-

Hopefully you had a few hours of
enjoyable poker, and you were savvy

Small wins: Winning money
always is the goal, even if it's only
enough to cover a modest dinner and
a movie. A $100 profit is a really nice
feather in the hat of a recreational
Most habitual, semi-professional
poker players shoot for profits of
about one or two big bets per hour.
This is more difficult than it sounds,
but the math adds up over time.
Suppose your normal game was
$5-$10 limit Texas Hold 'em. If you
beat that game for 1 1/2 big bets on
average after six hours, that is a $90
day. Post results like that four times
per week, and you just made the
equivalent of a full-time job that pays
$9 per hour.
And a big one: Sometimes,
though, it really will be your night,
and when it is, you want to take
advantage of it. Shoot for one or two
cash-game sessions where the results
are true statistical outliers of your
Tournament cash: Getting into
the money in a tournament is a big
deal, because most formats will pay
out to fewer than 15 percent of the
field. For recreational players, it can
be a true accomplishment. Those
