What are the perks of becoming a poker pro?
I've always (Well not always, but more like in the past 4 maybe 5 years I've been playing poker wondered about this)? What exactly are the perks to becoming a poker pro? What are the perks to becoming an online pro? I know it may sound pretty dumb and all, but realistically what are the benefits (besides money, heck I'm not even that dumb to not realize that money is one of there perks). So besides money what else is there. These are like the things I wonder about, lets say for online pros, do they get an hourly rate for every-time they log on? If so then how much can they expect to start of at? How exactly do these online pros actually become online pros?
I mean lets face it there's alot of decent unknown players on this site alone (Yet you don't see them getting signed on to Team Poker-Stars, Team Party Poker
, Team Full-Tilt-Poker, or Team U.B? So exactly what must one do to become part of this? I realize they must have won alot of money, or per-say must be an over-all winning player. Yet that's the thing I can't seem to comprehend, I mean ppl go on losiing streaks (Variance as you all so eloquently put it). So are you telling me that these pros don't don't have bad runs? I mean I know I'm asking alot of questions, but really there's more things I keep on wondering about. For instance, Does these reputable sites pay your buy-ins to Say WSOP
events, or WPT events, or any other type of poker events once you become part of there establishments or exactly how does it all work? I mean, your repping on behalf of these ppl (So isn't there like more cringe benefits to it, as apposed to only wearing there clothing, and them paying for your hotel while your at any of these poker events on there behalf while trying to endorse there site, and it's credintials)? Also another question I have is, lets say you somehow won a Satelite to the Main Event, does stars pay you for everyday your at the Main Event wearing there clothing, or do they match your pay out placement (Exactly how does it all work)?
I'm sry all if the questions I'm asking have already been asked, but what can I do but ask you fine Ladies&Gents on the #1 forum online.
