I have a very simple approach
to money that works for me: I
never, ever ask anybody what they
make, how much debt they carry
or how much they have saved in
the bank or other investments. And
if somebody attempts to volunteer
this information, I do my best to
cut them off.
It s absolutely none of my busi-
ness, and it seals off any stress or
negative vibes that could arise from
the discovery of such sensitive infor-
mation. The policy also gives me a
good reason to politely turn down
any requests for me to provide those
That being said, when poker is

really well, but too many are really
horrible at it. While I do enjoy a
great "gone broke" story, most are
Here are some easy ways to stay
in good financial shape:
Separate: The money you use for
poker has to be separate from the
money required to live. The rent or
mortgage, groceries, phone and util-
ity bills have to be accounted for
first, and some should be directed
into a savings vehicle before there
is any money left over that can be
taken to the felt. If this isn t your
bare-bones starting point, there is
no way you ll make it.
Once you have a figure that you
are comfortable with, this can act
as your base. If you go broke in a
cash game, there s no shame in that
---just repeat the same financial
process the following month.
Build: Ideally, reloading your roll
from zero on a monthly or biweekly
basis will be a thing of the past and
you will actually start accumulating
However, you may opt to con-
tinuously inject that number into
your roll for a little extra ammo to
play in a slightly higher-level cash
game, use it as an extra reload, or
take a stab in a major-buy-in tour-
Stop loss: Reserved for the playing
sessions when things don t go your
way, determine a loss number that
requires you to call it a day. Freezeout
tournament structures set this for
you, but some standard cash-game
reference points may be the loss of
100 big blinds or two buy-ins.
This was a bigger problem during
the online poker heyday, but be par-
ticularly cautious if you are the type
of player who likes to frequently
reload your stack to a set level. Mul-
tiple reloads of $100 here and anoth-
er $200 there don t have the sting
of replacing a full buy-in, but when
they are all added up, the total can
Credit-free: Casinos and public
card rooms often are happy to allow
you to play on credit, and some
home-game operators will jump at
the chance to put a player on the
books. In most cases, the interest
rates can make a credit-card com-
pany feel like charity.
