should I go "pro" ? question answered hundred times, but anyway help me pls
My question is: Should i make some money (if i'll be so smart/skilled enough) from poker when i think it's "waste" of time to working in country i live ...and i feel like even semi~ "pro" player i'll be able to make much more money from poker (even on low stakes i think) ?
I am 21, playing poker from like 18~ recreationally... last several months(like 3?~) i am playing on "part time" (like 2-3 hours per day) on Pokerstars
on small 45 player sit and go tournaments (0,50 buyin ) and after 700 tournaments i have ROI of 25 % (with some swings 21-29 %)
At the moment i have "status" of student of "university" (if i could call that piece of s**t in our small city) and sometimes i am part-time working...(if there's any work really) the problem is that next september i won't be longer student so i will have to work/study another school/stay unemployed...
I am from Slovakia (post communist country in the hearth of Europe) todays we got here like 15 % unemployment rate (something like 23 %~ in our city which is located in eastern part in most "poor" region...
I'd like to play online "semi-pro" and i will be happy when i'll make like 500-700 dollars (could be less in first months because of low starting bankroll which is now around 120 ~ dollars(started at 10 dollars) after 2 months of "low playing" ( some hours daily) like 2-3 days/ week
now you will probably laugh like "what the hell he want to start play poker full time and will be ok with 500 bucks monthly???
Consider that i am from country where average payout is 900 dollars and as most postcommunist countries we are pretty welfare state(health care for free, social help considered as good thankfully to our goverment of "social democrats" too) !!!!!!!!!
I'm living with my mother atm. so my monthly expenses is almost nothing... If i'd choose to work manually in my region i'll be able to earn like 500-700 dollars ~
Should i play poker instead of working ??????? if so which room/tournaments would you recommend me to play ? consider that i can multi-table 8 tables without making "misstakes"...
Thanks for your reply.......... John
