I play mostly recreationally. About a year ago I cashed out the majority of my online poker money for a profit of around $800 over the course of about 9 months. Most of that profit came from playing micro MTT with small bits from the cardschat freerolls. I guess that comes to around $70/month, but with MTT there are significant swings unless you are playing a very high volume.
I can't get consistent results in poker. This speaks of my lack of professionalism. Once upon a time, when I was just starting to play poker, I thought that I could make money in poker. But now, after 8 years of playing, I am not sure of a stable income. Even though I have won several thousand in the last 3 months. And I feel that I have a normal level of play, but I still can't make money in poker.
You won't get answer for it from most of the players. It is like asking how much is your salary, what other incomes you have, how much is that etc. Generally, it is not so nice digging in others's wallet, even if it is just for curiousity, not by the more common, bad intention...
Anyway, if you want to know it, you can find it out more or less without asking it.
Calculating poker profits a month is not right for me. I'm not a kesh player. I play exclusively in tournaments. The annual is a more normal calculation of income. I also sometimes have a big difference on an annual basis. But there has never been less than $ 500 or more than $ 4,000 per year.
I have never played more consistently than I have over Covid. I will say during that same time period I have deposited the following
$25 = 13x
$50 = 8x
$100 = 5x
$200 = 2x
So I have profited $5075
I have played multiple NL Hold'em... Turnament, Sit and Go's, Rake Games and Head to Head. I win most at Sit and Go's, but my big money has come from Tournaments.
I will say, that even though I am in the green. I still don't feel confident enough to say I could do it professionally.
I played a friendly sit and go with my poker group on pokerrrr 2. hands like the one I am going to tell you about tell me it is still luck first! Skill can get your head so high and still come out in the red more times than not.
