Sam Trickett's Banroll Trick

According to Sam Trickett's interview, he discussed his technique about his bankroll and how he maintain his stack not to go broke:

When you’re running good and you’re winning you should always take shots. I don’t think you should ever just stay at a level until you’re super bankrolled for it – you might be missing value all the time!

If you’re good enough to crush the level you’re at, take a chance and find out if you’re good enough to beat the higher games. It depends what you want from poker – if you want to pay the rent and have a wage then it’s good to grind away at the same stakes, but I don’t want that from poker – I want to win lots of money!

Sam Trickett has now won over $3.2 million at poker tournaments around the globe for his career.
