First realize you've chosen onehelluva tough way to make an easy living. I would ask why you want to do this. If it's because you have a dead end job that just plain SUX, you might be better off getting additional training/education and consider a new line of work. It'll be a helluvalot less stressful. Landlords and other bill collectors aren't gonna sympathize because you just had a month of massive runbad. That's gonna happen if you play long enough. You'll need enough 'roll to take care of expenses and have enough to play through the runbad. Jack "Treetop" Strauss could put the last of his 'roll on the table and still play his A game. Most players, most pros
Don't give up your day job just yet.
Study, study, study ; play, play, play. Make certain you're really as good as you think you are and that you're not just fooling yourself. And keep studying and don't get into a rut where you're just on autopilot all the time.
