I am unemployed right now so I have a lot of free time on my hands but no extra money to do much of anything. I am wondering if it is realistic to think I could "get by" playing online poker. I don't have a mortgage or any car payment (all paid up), so it would just be making enough to help cover the monthly bills.
I'm wondering how long it would take (playing and studying) to get to the point of having a consistent profit margin each month (say 200-300 a month). I do other part time stuff, so it wouldn't be my only source of income.
I know not everyone will be profitable playing online poker. That's why I asked the questions. I wonder how many just play for entertainment and don't care about the money, and how many actually keep track and know what they make/lose playing poker. And if they are profitable, what they play and how often they play, how much study is involved and how long did it take them to get to where they are.
Right now I have acquired a small bankroll (across many different sites) playing freerolls
. I have recently started focusing on playing Micro STT SnGs. I am currently on the border of breaking even and making a profit. I'm wondering if I'm heading in the right direction or if my time would be better spent flipping burgers at Mickey D's.
I have seen a lot of posts saying the Micro SnGs are so easy. I'm wondering what win percentage would be considered "easy"? Do people play these and win 90% of the time? Or is a 65 - 70% win rate considered "easy"?
