Poker profitable? Or not?
Join Date: Oct 2020
Know your limits, literally. I play $.50/$1 to $1/$2 LIMIT poker and up to $4/$8 limit live, basically, the lowest limit tables. I can continually crush those games and over years netted few thousands of dollars after roughly 200,000 hands. I've taken my winnings before and tried my hand at $2/$4 and even $5/$10 limit online and got absolutely crushed. Whole different ball game when you start playing at limits where people are trying to play for a living and grind daily while I'm just playing casually to search for a few fish.
I do not know what is happening...
something has been broken for a while and it is a series of profitable days.I haven’t won anything in 3 days and I realized this turbo isn’t really lying to me.It's just too fast.So with a very serious determination, I will move from the $ 1 45 normal to tomorrow. 92 seats are plenty enough. I try to develop myself further, play, practice.Oh and leaving the MTTs because that way I can download 1-2 a day doesn't make much sense. There is little chance of getting a higher score because I push a few MTTs.Next week I will try to download 50 $ 1 SnGs with as much profit as possible.
Playing Poker is very profitable especially for the Poker Sites, They don't play they just offer amazing prize money to the winners, which looks good on paper but when you consider the amount of players who buy-in to these tourney's there are thousands that do not make the money.
When I first started playing on-line my Father said "do be careful son, you can lose a lot of money, gambling like that"
I just laughed and said "Dad I play free-rolls, How can I lose?"
Then I went on to explain how free-rolls work and how much you can win from them.
He then asked How can they afford to give away free money like that.
I answered that for every person like me who dreams of winning a fortune there are thousands of others who think they can make the money without the hard work and studying they need in order to win.
It is so easy to deposit huge amounts of money and buy into big games that offer thousands of Dollars in prize money, but so much harder to make the top place and win.
My advice to any one starting on-line is to be Patient, success is not an overnight thing , and in order to be good at any thing it takes Practice, Practice, Practice,
I am still miles away from playing high stakes but do I really want to?
I am happy playing 1 Dollar Sit and Goes and the odd Free-roll MTT.
Poker is a game like any other, and it should be treated as a game, something to be enjoyed, not looked on as a way to make money or make a better lifestyle for yourself, Sure some people do make it big, you only have to look at the Poker Stars playing on T.V.
Remember this for each one you see, There are thousands and thousands of others that never do.
I am proud of myself! Maybe yesterday’s little learning also helped or that I trusted my knowledge and didn’t lose my mind. I could be there mentally completely. All of these helped me achieve my success.
This month I made the final table of the CC freeroll twice. One of them made 20 dollars. And I also won a hot tournament of 1.10, which distributed 750 dollars, with 117 to first place. This month has been profitable, but generally it is not ... Good luck!
