I certainly agree there is a skill level difference, but following the same path pattern, it's just a much slower trek for those of us with inferior skills.
I don't expect I'll ever reach the $10,000 level, but if you stay within whatever levels you CAN perform well in, a constant improvement in BR should be possible. It will take me longer, but it's all - one step at a time.
I think where the big difference comes in for most is that first larger MTT win. I struggle in NLHE MTT's, but can make it ITM often enough not to lose that meager BR. My own path will certainly be slower mainly because I try to stick to limit games, an area I know well and am comfortable with.
I'd love to play on a table with Chris (or another pro) one day, but it would be just for the sheer enjoyment of it, understanding I would be a likely candidate to get my bottom spanked ...
