I'm thinking about going semi-pro my story goes as this im a serious tournament golfer and love poker my specialty is limit and I consider myself an expert, however as NL is the name of the game, in general, I'm just an amateur at the medium skill level. So how is the current Vegas poker ecosystem, if you put in the work right? Maybe in yesteryears were the tables filled with fish is this true anymore can I show up at the Flamingo at 11:00 am and crush 4-8 limit for 400 bucks to tourist and later that day play 1/3 in live action at Balleys and make a little 2800 k a month living the dream?

Vegas has the best selection of games running at all hours, but it isn't necessarily the most profitable place in the country because you'll run into a lot of competent to good players, even at lower stakes like 1/2 or 1/3. Also, cost of living is pretty high if you like to spend money on things like dining out and entertainment.

Vegas is only as expensive as you make it. If you party and gamble and club, you ain't gonna make it on an even decent living. I live pretty comfortably and I don't make much money.

re: Poker & Is Vegas profitable as a live grinder?
Watch Andrew Neeme on Youtube. He makes his living playing poker mostly in Vegas, but he travels around to LA and other places too. In his VLOG he has said that LA is more profitable to play poker for a living, but he really likes Vegas and is able to grind out a decent living there.

Trying to make a living solely off playing poker is tough anywhere. As the game has increased in popularity, you tend to find a ton of mice out there trying to feed themselves from the same block of cheese. The best advice I would give you comes from the immortal words of Doyle Brunson- Expecting to go into a casino and doubling or tripling your money day in day out is not realistic. A good day for a full time gambler is to leave with 10% more than walked in with. In other words, if you want to make $1000, you will more than likely have to put $10,000 in play. For the average individual this is just not a reality.
