Start from the basics
It sounds simple, but in any field, if you want to become a winner, it’s important to start from the basics and improve step by step. Poker is no exception, as a solid game consists of a reliable pre-flop play and knowledge and experience in post-flop play. However, one of the most enjoyable aspects of playing at low stakes is that players make countless mistakes before seeing the flop. You can take advantage of this by having a strong pre-flop foundation. Dedicate enough time and energy to learn correct hand ranges, as it is the path to a profitable post-flop game.
Solid bankroll management
Since “Spin & Go” is one of the riskiest game types and variance can be unforgiving, bankroll management skills are crucial. Our recommendation for less experienced players is to use a conservative approach and climb limits gradually. If you plan to start from the $1 limit, begin with a bankroll of 300 buy-ins (300$). If you want to challenge yourself at the 2-5$ limits, adjust your bankroll accordingly between 600-1000$.
Having a solid pre-flop plan and discipline in bankroll management will help reduce variance and allow you to move up in limits without stress.
The importance of psychology
Strategy and bankroll management go hand in hand with psychological challenges. When facing a negative swing, many lower limit players simply leave their bankrolls at the tables. Take some time to read a chapter from your favorite psychology book or watch a video dedicated to improving psychological skills. Experiment and strengthen your mindset with monthly challenges such as cold showers, meditation, or planks. It’s important to remember that poker is a marathon, not a sprint. And in that marathon, there will be various ups and downs.
Celebrate your victories, learn from your losses, and don’t be afraid of making mistakes, as it’s part of the process.
