Of course you can, for example. If a player who has decided they are a close to or are at pro level at 6 man sit n gos (for the sake of this post) they could play in a 3 hour session, about 5-25 sit n gos depending on how many tables and how many are willing to play ASO, if they play $1000 sit n gos, 1st place (on FTP anyway) is $3800, thats a profit of $2800 on each game won not including second places, you would expect a person willing to play poker as a living to be able to acheive atleast 12-15 cashes out of 25 games with min cash giving you around $2000, add a few firsts in and your looking at being up around $5000 minimum every session, thats more than most people earn for 2 hours right?
However, not everyone can achieve this. I would not reccomend trying to take poker up as a profession unless you have atleast 6 months worth of money set aside to pay your bills and rent and so on. But if you are a good SnG player you can easily make a steady living. Playing for 6 hours a day at the $10 buy in $39 for first, 5 days a week could make you an Ok living, that if your a say 30+/50 casher in SnG's.
Good Luck i your SnG's
