Poker Dictionary – Bankroll


The poker universe is vast and expansive. There is so much to learn and understand about poker as you dive deeper into the game. And some things in poker are such that they not only help you on the poker table but off the tables, in real life too!

In this article, we will look at one such poker term, that as a skill, has great importance in poker and otherwise too. So let’s discuss the poker term—bankroll.

What is a bankroll?

Bankroll in poker is the amount of money a player sets aside to play the game. In other words, the funds that a player has made available to specifically play poker apart from his/her day-to-day living expenses is known as bankroll. Bankroll has a crucial role to play in a player’s strategy.

The skill of strategically and effectively making use of the bankroll is known as bankroll management (BRM). There is a fine line between gambling and investing in the game, and BRM is one of the crucial factors that differentiate the two. 

Many new players usually do not have a bankroll, i.e., use their living expenses and poker funds interchangeably. This leads to players going bankrupt and often borrowing money for their daily essential expenses. 

How to use bankroll strategically?

Always set aside an amount that is discretionary or recreational as your bankroll. It is advised that professional poker players should first set aside funds worth at least six months of their living expenses before deciding on one’s bankroll. So remember to be mindful about your bankroll as you enjoy the game of poker.
