I recently started playing almost full time for my job. I have some advice for you and others but especially in your situation.
One, if you want to make 70k this year, and online, you are gonna wanna play a lot of hands if you are playing cash. Two, If I were you, that 50k would not be my bankroll. I would take the 5k you won add 5k to it, and have a 10k bankroll online. Make sure you take full advantage of affiliate sites, some offer up to 100% rakeback with other deals and promotions like deposit bonuses. For instance, when I deposit on Merge networks, i clear my bonus, and move to another merge skin for another 5k bonus which clears pretty quick.
One big rule for online, is STAY OUT OF THE CASINOS
. Do not play casinos. This almost wiped my dream away after thinking i could go in and play some theories, all online casionos in my opinion are rigged so make sure you stay out o them.
Good luck, and like someone else said, keep us updated.
