Hi,is poker a good way to make money in online turnaments or is it better live.
Which is more profitable depends on a few things including your skillset.
For example, if a strength of yours is live reads, then live poker may be more profitable than online poker where you can't see your opponents. Both live and online offer their pros and cons.
I will note though, online has much more variance than live poker for the simple (yet important) fact that more hands can be played in the same amount of time (not as much waiting for hands to be dealt, cards shuffled, chips bet etc. since online is usually automatic or one or two clicks at most versus physically doing the actions). Due to this, the "identical" stakes online are much more competitive in ability. For example, the skill level of a $1/$2 game online would generally be tougher players than a $1/$2 game in-person.
Online poker having more variance means that one can potentially make more money in the same amount of time, but naturally could also lose more money in the same amount of time. This is somewhat offset by the earlier mentioned fact that online competition tends to be tougher at "identical" stakes though.
Conversely, live poker may have a better chance for recreational players to want to "gamble" and the mere presence of more "fish" might make live games softer and that might translate into being more profitable...
I suppose it would just take a little experimenting to see which is most profitable for you. Another consideration is that online may be more for the math-oriented since HUDs are allowed on most sites, whereas live poker may be more for the psychology-oriented since everyone can physically see their competition.
Let us know what you decide on and how it goes
1st place finish at CardsChat 30 Day Course Freeroll (May 31, 2020). As my first ever CardsChat event, this one will always be special for me.
It can develop that way, Lot of work ahead before that happens. Spending time away from the table is important but many side step that. Going over hands, missed value and smaller aspects can be missed to where profit is minimal.

Hi there. it depends on what you want to win. if you can win without being a pro. but you can also lose a lot. I'm not a pro but playing poker I buy some things that I like with the winnings. since the dollar is very expensive
It is easy to be seduced by the glamour and fame of winning a big event, a few millions and recognition of your skills by the entire world... But the harsh reality is that of only a very very small percentage of players are considered successful, and even a slimmer percentage of these players are the ones that make the big bucks, the ones everyone knows by name and reputation.
Look at it this way, in a torunament, only about 15 percent of players make the money, but out of those only the top 9 players really make good winnings. The same can be applied to having poker as a career.
Other than that, I don't recommend going pro in Online Poker... The bottom fact is that you don't really know of the player on the other side of the monitor is even human.
Tournament competition is softer than cash. Live games are softer than online. It's best to treat the game as a hobby. If it becomes a profitable hobby, then more power to you.
But, if you're thinking about playing professionally, realize that there almost have to be many more professions that are less stressful, easier, and more enjoyable for you, where you'll make more money than you would at poker.
No matter how boring the game is, to be profitable, your brain is going to have to be firing on all cylinders, non-stop. You can play perfectly, all week long, but still have a profit of -$2000 for that week. It's not hard to lose when you're only a 60:40 favorite.
Although there're is more weak players in live poker but online poker is convenient and we can play more hands than live poker so in my opinion, we will get more money when playing online if we play correctly.

$ 56 for 5 days at nl2. You can earn on cigarettes and beer. Sometimes I won $ 150 in 15 days. How a side job will do. I play where I can win. As a side job, it suits me.You can learn to play higher limits and win big money, why not?
U can't think about it this way even with good skills you will get many bad beats and down swings it gonna frustrate you and get you into tilt just do it for fun try be a winning player facing those sharks enjoy the game manage your BR and invest your winning out of the game
In the game on poker rooms I won quite nice sums several times, but this did not happen often and I often remained dissatisfied, just over and over again I was thrown out by the random number generator. I think in a live tournament I would not be too worried about the idea of a suspicious program that gives out unrealistic combinations of random numbers on the poker rooms. But unfortunately there are no real casinos in my country
Never played live for money but i think live is better. when you play live you can watch your opponents, see his reaction. It's kind of influence you can't get on online poker and in my opinion online poker favors some players and disfavors some other players. Online poker is not fair.
I agree with the vast majority of the previous posters here. Man tournament poker is brutal , if you are good enough and consistent in volume and you are able to take some shots within your bankroll then you may be in profit.
Maybe you can bink a big tournament etc but IMO make serious money in tournament poker in a fast way I would consider it as super difficult.
Good afternoon everyone, in my opinion it is an excellent way to earn money, as every profession requires dedication and discipline.
I admit that I should study more, but I'm already making small profits from poker, I'm earning more than when I was working in sales.
Apparently it all depends on you, on your goals, and the desire to achieve them. Undoubtedly, poker can be a source of income, but it requires hard work for many years. Skill comes with experience only.
Its difficult to make money in poker. Most of the times you will generate more rake for poker sites than profit for yourself.
Over the years, Win rate per 100 hands has come down significantly. But if one enjoys playing cards, then one can make money.
Probably if you are young it would be much better to focus mainly on education and career or building a profitable business. Later in life when you have money in the bank then learn how to sell things for more than you paid for them (eg stocks, real estate).
Poker can be very profitable however also very risky, I wouldn't rely only on poker, specially for beginners. As mentioned above, studying and experience will help a lot but still will not gaurentee wins.
very few make money,,,,even fewer make a living playing poker. There are easier ways to make $$$ than poker,,,billions of dollars are transferred around the world every day,the secret is to get in between those $$$,,,
