How much do 2/5NL and 5/10NL Live Pros make?
Someone mentioned that for 1/2NL, a very good player could make $20/hr after many hours. But realistically, no one plays 1/2NL for a living. Is that true or false? What about 1/3nl? I know some places have 1/3 and you can buyin deepstack for 500 as oppose to 300 so its like a baby 2/5nl game almost. Thoughts on this? I feel like someone can actually make 40k/year playing 1/3nl with a 500 buyin if they put lot of hours.
But for 2/5NL, i read 25-35 per hour was pretty good. And anything 50 and up which is 10BB-12BB would be crushing it. Are there any 2/5 or 5/10nl Live Pros here? I would estimate that a pretty good 2/5NL would make around $35/hr and say 30 hours a week would make $1000 a week. Say 50 weeks a year and its $50000 a year before taxes. But someone said if someone was making this much, he would be playing 5/10NL and not 2/5NL.
I'm curious at how much live pros who are winning players make on average. I heard the best a 5/10nl player can make up to $100 per hour but most of the really good ones make $75 max. If that is true, are most of them grinding it out 1500-2000 hours a year? Because if they are, they would be 100k/year at least with that winrate. But i assume most of the good players winrate for 5/10nl would be more like 50/hr? But i also read on sites that 100k/year playing 5/10nl would make you top 1 percent of players and that most dont even make that much.
Also i heard that poker in vegas is actually pretty tough when you play 2/5NL and up. Is that true or false? I have played poker in atlantic city and vegas and in my opinion, the 1/2 games in vegas are easily softer than any 1/2 game i ever played in AC nitfest i ever played.
I would assume if someone plays full time and puts at least 35 hours a week and is a pretty good player at that level it would be like this...
Thoughts on my numbers?
