Money management was always the thing that slowed me from becoming a truly great poker player. I would suggest that other players adhere to bankroll management.

Cultivate your curiosity. Keep it sharp and always working. Consider curiosity your life preserver, your willingness to try something new. Second, enlarge your enthusiasm to include the pursuit to excellence, following every task through to completion. Third, make the law of averages work for you. By budgeting your time more carefully than most people, you can make more time available. Does the combination of curiosity, enthusiasm, and the law of averages guarantee success? Indeed, it does not! ... Success in the final analysis always involves luck or the element of chance.... [However] chance favors the prepared mind. - John W. Hanley

Of poker it is often said, "It's a hard way to make an easy living." For most players, they'd show more profit in the long run doing almost anything else. (For many - lifelong losers - they'd show more profit just doing nothing at all.) Likewise with cheaters. - John Vorhaus

I hear players complain all the time that they never catch a hand or that they have bad luck. Re-raise over the top and you’ll manufacture a hand and make your own luck. - Daniel Negreanu
