This is a discussion on Players with a stable life? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; players with a stable life just playing poker? name some assets that you have had in your poker career.
Many members of our community are interested in this issue. For me, poker is a hobby, an opportunity to be distracted and have fun. I do not use my own money for the game, but gradually build a bankroll by playing in freerolls. At the moment, all my assets are a total of about $ 400 in my poker accounts.
For me, poker is a hobby. I can only play online currently because I am a teacher on a remote island in Alaska, so there are no affordable ways for me to play live. I usually play live when I visit family in western NY. Some day, I want to build a savings account and a live money bankroll to take 2-3 trips a year and play live for a few days. Hopefully when I retire, I can find a place to settle down near some popular card rooms.
Poker is a nice hobby of mine, and just like any other hobby, I am always trying to get better at it. I'm not looking to be a pro or make millions of dollars. I just want to have fun and hopefully be profitable, even if it's just a little bit (so far, so good).
"I'm not a mean person, but I don't wish 'good luck' on anybody sitting across the table from me. It's poker. I hope you have the worst cards ever."
I like to play poker, to me is more a way to get fun, I don't have enough qualities to be profitable, I have have meted only two players that live from poker. Even if I manage to have some poker income I prefer to have other ways to make money.
I believe that all people should have different forms of income, mainly passive income, and we must always be prepared for the future, it may be that some profession becomes more difficult.
I think it is a matter of personal philosophy. If you have a progamm in the game in the long term, then you can put normally poker in your life without problems and enjoy the game. Earnings will be more, if there is a programm and if there are targets to succeed in the game!
a stable life for me is one where i can work, and play poker, and not lose any of the family time that my family requires. ive had to learn i cannot degen play all day in multiple tourneys, i cant just play for 12 hours a day. so for me stabilty is my family and poker is a fun game to play on the side. my main goal is to bink some minor tourney and take my fam on vaca, would be amazing
