Good column today tim, looking forward to more in the poker section. It is always good to hear other people lost a decent amount starting out. (I think I deposited on a weekly basis for a year or two as well) Bankroll management is very key to online and live play, unfortunately or fortunately for some, most put this important concept on the backburner.

2 Stories in two days? Oh yeah this is picking up.
Continuation bet, really the only thing I do right at a poker table. I don't play in the big tourney's like it sounds like many of you do, mostly mid level sit and goes, but I have learned over the years of playing that the continuation bet is a great way to just get an idea where you are in a hand. I found that when I'm playing well, and making these bets no matter if I have the winning hand or not, I'm winning alot more because I'm winning alot more. Does that makes sense? Let me see if I can explain. If the flops misses me, and it is just low cards, I will make a continuation bet, most of the time I'm going to win because chances are no one else is playing low cards that would hit, and if they are playing low cards and somehow hit a set, they are coming in over the top of me and I'm getting out. Now after the flop, and it is all paint, by making the continuation bet on the earlier hand when I had nothing, and was hoping no one else had anything, other players only remember that I won the earlier hand, and if the flop didn't hit them, they fold.
I guess in all my ramblings all I'm saying is betting is good.
