Since when are you playing poker, my friend? And what do you mean with good money?
For me, it took 2 years to make it profitable, but I have to say I was kinda lazy before that time. I knew the rules and some tactics,but that was it. After 2 years I really started studying, watching alot of big tournaments, reading blogs, looking at poker strategic video's and so on. Now I get my pocketmoney out of poker. But I think I said it before, my normal earning from my job is not that big, I don't have alot of savings, so keep on playing with a rather small bankroll. When I win 'good' money, 80 or 90 % goes to my bankaccount and the rest I invest in poker.
When you already have alot of money on your bankaccount, you can invest more of your winnings into bigger pokertournaments, but keep in mind that bankrollmanagement is important to avoid losing all of your bankroll due to bad runs of cards, which any poker player must expect from time to time. If you play poker for long enough there are going to be periods of time where you will consistently lose money, not because you are playing badly, but because the cards are not falling your way. This means that if you do not have enough money in your bankroll to absorb these big downswings, it is likely that you will lose it all. Every player, irrespective of ability, will experience variance in their game. Bankroll management is in place to deal with this variance and allow you to continue playing without going broke.
Goodluck with trying to build your bankroll and ENJOY!!!
