7. Always making small deposits.
If you take poker serious you need to start with some serious cash. How much do I need to start? To give yourself a chance you should have a minimum of 20 buy ins. If you wanted to start playing at the $0.25/$0.50 level with $30 buy-ins then you would need $600. Don't be a short stacker. You should always have a minimum of 50 big blinds when you play. I would suggest moving to a smaller level rather then making minimum buy-ins (e.g. $10 in a $0.25/$0.50 game). Of course having 30 or 40 buy-ins would be preferable. If you were to lose 30 to 40 buy-ins then you need to consider playing lower levels to work on improving your game. Improve your poker game.
