Anyone ever wonder what the team "pros" and "online" earn
Probarly a really vague answer for these and most likely no one would actually know unless they have some contacts but I'm sure most will have a better idea than me and I've always wondered what sort of expenses and salary they earn.
These are my thoughts on some 2 top pros and 2 online pros and their earnings.
I'm guessing he is the most paid pokerstar player as he is one of the most recognisable poker players in the world and most definetly most famous.
If I had to guess, I'd say his contract is a multi million dollar one. Not sure over how many years and so on but would you say just in salary alone he earns 100K + a year? I also wonder what expenses he gets paid for including entry fees and maybe a bankroll capital although I'm unsure if he would of been given a bankroll!
This might sound contridcting but actually it woulden't surprise if everything taken into account he earns the same as Daniel, if not more espically because he is a lot more active than Daniel on the online felt. Most definetly the most famous onine player (excluding Tom Dwan) to make such a inpact. Instantly made a team pro as opposed to team online. I'm guessing in terms of promoting and coverage, his signing would of been quite lucrative. As opposed to Daniel, I'm quite confident he was giving a starting bankroll as part of his contract terms so he could play the highest stakes out there.
The fact that he very recently moved to London as residence speaks volume on how much his contract must of been worth. It woulden't surprise me if he isn't falling short of Daniel in terms of a Salary. The bankroll, must of been a lot though, when looking at losses, he's already been down nearly 600k and I don't belive any of that money was actually "his"
The fact they also have superstar showdown as an avent which happens once/twice a month it woulden't surprise me if he's staked in every game he plays and any profits are his. If he loses then he just loses, which doesn't effect anything. There's so much you could add to Viktors possibly earnings but to much to list. I'm guessing with everything taken into a account he also is on at least a million dollar contract with pokerstars
After the big boom in the money maker effect I'm also guessing at the TIME he had the same sort of contract as Viktor has at the minute although nowadays I don't think it's anywhere near as much as these two. I'm guessing would of been given a good starting bankroll, free entry into major tournaments and of course a salary but I also belive as the years have gone by his contract has been cut somewhat.
Online players: (2 examples)
At a guess I think the online pros don't have anywhere near as much of a lucrative deal but still one I woulden't turn my nose up to. Any thoughts would be good.
A salary based contract with x amount of hours put in each month to full fill it. No idea on how much they would be paid but I'm guessing it would be above a good normal day wage. Maybe 60+ plus a year? Obviously no bankroll edition and so on..Maybe a chance of 100% rake back?
Same sort of deal as Randy?
It's actually harder putting an "online pro" on a gestimate on how much they earn but I'm sure it can't all be that bad.
any thoughts would be great!
