Even the $50k a Year thing I would think is not a lot in the poker World, but it was an example
Have I got something against you? No! Not at all.
$50k/yr. bankroll would indeed be small if you were referring to Live tourney players who play the $10k buyins.
For online though (as stated already), 200buyins (maybe 300+) is pretty much the norm. (so if you're talking about playing $50 avg. bi, then you'd want $10-15k in your bankroll.).
There are many online tournament pros. Some play less volume than others. Some HSMTT players will play a wide variety of buyins, even throwing in $10r/a, etc. (you'll even see a bunch of them in those $2r/a 3x-Turbo $100k guar. on Stars). Others will play less volume, focusing on higher buyins only (ie. Adam Geyer (csimmsux), gboro, etc.). Some play 1500+ tournaments per month.
Most don't play cash game online. Some will add in SNG-MTT (45's on FTP, 180's on Stars, etc.). Generally speaking > tourney players play tourneys.
