What do you Do : after you lost over 50 mil +

I'd just write it off to variance, drop down a table or two, and keep playing. Considering I'd never stay at the table after losing 30% of my bankroll and if I had lost 50 mil I'd still have 117 million, it wouldn't bother me at all. Check your emotions at the door.

    The principles of bankroll management are the same whether cash or play money. Makes zero difference.

    That's not true at all. Remember you are playing a numbers generator here at Zynga. It's nothing at all like playing real Texas hold-em. The cards do not fall the same, I,ve actuall won twenty three hands in a row here on zynga. It just does not happen that way with a real deck of cards, so all the advice about don't give up and bank roll management is just another way of saying keep playing so eventually you will spend your money here.

    I'd be willing to stake a pretty large sum of money that if you were to play the same number of hands in a casino as you do on Zynga you'd see little difference.

    Yes, we play a number generator. But what is a dealer but a physical number generator.

    a human dealer is much less of a randomiser than even a bog standard programmed one.

    Alfter you lose 50M+ you should just sit back and think where you did wrong and where it was just unluck. After you recognized your mistakes you can keep playing trying to avoid to make them again.

    Ibelieve zynga admin do that

    - useless if you send an email to zynga CS.
    - useless if you expect your chips back
    - and lastly there is no point if you play you will be treated unfairly continuously

    - I contacted with email the Zynga CS and it has been very useful
    - That time they gave me back 29M+
    - It happens. It's poker. Poker isn't always fair by his own nature.

    I beg to differ, i have played real texas holdem poker in Vegas many times and the cards are not even close to falling the same, you do not get flushes and straights and pairs in the hole no where near the amount of times( which seems to be 75% of the time) in real poker, get real.

    I played in a meatspace game last night. i hit trips 4 times, 2 full houses, 3 flushes and 1 straight in 2 hours. i dont get that frequency of high value hands on zynga in 2 hours even though i'll play maybe three times as many hands on zynga in 2 hours than i would in meatspace.

    Variance. Study it, understand it and you will see how I could not see AA in 2,000 hands and then hit it three out of four hands. 100,000 hands is the rule of thumb to where variance starts to level out. Since there are no hand histories in here, everything most players see is exaggerated due to their imaginations.

    Go play 100K hands at Full Tilt, run your hand histories through poker tracker and you will get a clear picture that things are not as they appear.

    As A tight player, I have a lot more boats than straight. I don't chase, I don't play trash hands so with that, I can change my variance drastically.

    First thing I would do is link this thread to some experts at 2p2 BBV and see what advice they can offer.

    I have already taken the liberty.

    OP, to make you feel better, Here is how Variance can effect a Poker Player. The following chart is from a student of mine. The Stakes are REAL MONEY.

    grimstarr.jpg

    As you can see, variance can be a real hardship, but you should never give up. I want you to take something positive away from all this. Even though he lost $700,000, in the end he still was up $100,000, and that is all that matters.

    Also, I am happy to report that Grimstarr has bounced back nicely in life, and is now a VERY successful pizza delivery boy.

    The only way you can lose so much is to bet it all at once. Play a tighter game.

    realize that the game is 71.4% (5 of 7 cards) postflop play. therefore you should limp in every hand and never raise bc ur not sure what kind of hand you are gonna end up with

    Also realize that Zynga is full of people who will call or press all the way to the river with speculative cards (or even a single card). Poor players win more hands because they play more hands. I'd be willing to bet most "pros" have a hard time dealing with that.

    To help deal with the swings, BRM is really important. Here are a few tips on Bankroll Management and why it’s important.

    Bankroll management (BRM) is where you play at specific cash game levels, to help you keep from losing your bankroll when you are in a spell of a bad run of cards, which we have all had unfortunately.

    Key is to play within your current bankroll. Here’s a good rule of thumb:

    You should have at least 20 times the buy in (the maximum buy in when you sit at a table) for cash games to handle the variance. So if your bankroll is 1,000,000, you should be sitting at tables where you can buy in at 50,000. Once your bankroll increases, you can move up in stakes. If it falls, then you can move down in stakes until you build it back up.

    Players can send 100,000 chips max to any player per week.
    They are allowed to send 500,000 per week total - they can split that between their friends.
    ie: I send you 10,000 chips (via a transfer) today.
    I have 90,000 more that I can send you this week.
    That leaves me with 400,000 to give out to other friends.
    Check out this blog post for more details: http://zyngablog.typepad.com/texas_holdem/2011/06/how-to-send-zynga-poker-chips.html



    Any other way of transferring is not allowed.
