How to Fight High Variance in MTTs
Downswings are a part of every gamer’s life and even the most-skilled poker players get a taste of it quite often. Here are a few points to follow as you build your online poker bankroll for the next big poker tournament on PokerBaazi.
Pay Attention to Bankroll Management
One of the most common mistakes players make is that they are buying into poker tournaments that are higher than their poker bankroll. As we know, multi-table tournaments come with heavy variance. An important factor to consider is that your higher buy-in can handle a significant blow or not.
Generally, the players aim to have at least 300+ buy-ins for the stakes they play, however, this also depends on the structure and the format of the game. For example, if you play online poker tournaments with a large field or games that are quick-structured such as turbos, then you need to have a larger bankroll (300-500 buy-ins).
However, if you like to play online games with smaller fields or slow structured poker tournaments, then you can get away with a smaller bankroll (200+ buy-ins).
Move Down in Stakes When Necessary
If and when you face a major blow to your bankroll, try to move down in stakes because this will help you build your online poker bankroll once again and in a steady manner. Although it’s natural to hesitate in doing so, it does help you in efficient bankroll management in the long run.
Selling a percentage of your poker tournament action is a smart way to reduce the effects of variance. This helps because in doing so, you will be free to play the same kind of games you played earlier.
When you sell action, an investor gets to take a percentage of your profit which depends on how much they have invested.
Avoid Playing When on Tilt
If you feel that you’re tilting and negative mindset is getting a hold of you, then try to be away from the felts as soon as you can. If you choose not to do this, it will simply affect you further and damage your online poker bankroll.
You will not be completely alert and will see yourself getting crushed by a fish. Take a break because bankroll management is way more important than your need to keep playing.
Downswings is a common phenomenon and a smart way to combat it is to review your poker hands and analyze your poker strategy. You can also choose to approach another pro with whom you can have productive discussions. This will significantly reduce the number of leaks in your gameplay.
