I'm just happy to have a hobby where I'm gaining money (even if slowly) rather than it costing me money.
This is my exact situation, including the time I've been playing real money. I'm over 1.2k above right now, although lately on a pretty bad losing streak ( I was 1.5k above) that I can't seem to stop for a few reasons. Some bad beats that have killed me and some bad decisions that have hurt even worse. I probably need a break.
Funny how appearently we started playing at about the same time NL.
As far as where I think I can go with poker, I doubt that I'll ever make a steady income with it. It's mostly recreational for me and I really don't play many ring games, mostly tournies. Although there are exceptions to this, like Chuck for example, I think those who make a steady
income are mostly cash game players.
My goal is to win a big MTT, don't know if it'll ever happen though. Also, I'd like to qualify on-line for some live tourney, doesn't matter which and not necessarily the WSOP ME. Actually, up until today, the ME probably represents the last one I'm interested in. I'm not sure yet because it depends on my BR, but I might try in the fall for the PS Caribbean adventure, although honestly I should give it another year before attempting something like that, as I don't think I'm ready to play that type of satellites yet.
