do you know cases of people, close or even yourself, who really changed their financial situation with poker?
Do you have really crazy stories?
tell me please.
Since first joining this forum I have seen a few go on to be High Stakes crushers. I remember one member, Bluenowhere4, a micro stakes freeroller challenging another member to a series of HeadsUp games (a forum dispute of sorts). Not long after he became a HeadsUp sng specialist, playing $300+ buyin level and made 100's of thousands online.
I've noticed some guys who play the $1K mtt buyins online (& higher) who I have player note tags on, from when they were in Cardschat games. Now they are high stakes regulars.
Some others I've seen in bigger tourneys online, only to discover they're not actually MTT players but play the higher stakes cash games. One I saw recently had a post on here quite a few years ago that was titled something like "Should I try to play poker for a living or should I go back to school (2nd year Uni)?" Of course 99% of the replies told him to go to school, he'll never win money in poker, it's a ridiculous whim, etc. etc. Today he's been doing it for years now!
