re: Poker & How big a prize would you have to win to quit your job and become a pro?
Honestly, its not about "one big score" to become pro. Yeah you can win say 200k in a tournament but after taxes, bills, family if you have kids and a wife like me. You still have a nice chunk left but its not enough to go do the whole tournament circuit.
If you can have a good head to stay in BRM, which will be vary difficult seeing that you just boosted your rool by 100 plus times. Sure you can probably quit your job enjoy life for a little bit. But STAY IN YOUR LANE! Don't go directly to WPT'S or anything. play your local casinos
where the buy ins like at the most what 500$.
Bottom line you have to prove you can withstand a few losses and i rather lose a grand instead of 20 dimes!
