Well I just watched him, just the fact that he would timeout clues me in that he's not a bot. His idea is really smart though. If he knows he can beat the 10c/25c games (saw him playing one, just assuming that's the limit for all the games he plays), knows he can 24-table profitably, why risk going up in stakes? From my PT database I'm averaging 79 hands per hour per table. So if he 24-tables he sees 1896 hands per hour. If he can average 5 BB/100 hands (totally reasonable at those limits IMO if you can handle the 26 tables) that's $2.50 every hundred hands and 2.5*18.96 = $47.40/hour
Some quick calculations if he does that for a living and works a standard 40-hour work week and takes 2 weeks of vacation every year: $47.40*(40 hours)*(50 weeks) = $94,800 per year. Not bad for someone who can only mechanically beat 10c/25c. Obviously I don't know if he could do better, and it's possible he's not even making 5 BB/100 hands. But even 2 BB/100 would be almost 38k/year.
Apparently if you can actually handle that many tables, donk-crushing is extremely profitable. No need to be really good or beat higher limit games. Hell I'd do that if I won that kind of money. If he does it consistently it's probably become automatic for him as well. My worst fear in that scenario would be boredom. But hey, if I have a job making around $100k a year, I really don't mind the boredom, and it's never real boredom because there's always something to do (24 somethings in this case ).
