The beginning player in poker can be unsuccessful long time, and even forever remain such so far it will not make any progress. Both level of complexity of a game, and this process not always is also very changeable has temporary dependence. You can earn an annual state only in several hours, and can play month without a break and remain in minus.
Keep in mind that just few percent of people that play have made serious money from poker so it is not that easy. You will need to spend some time to learn and improve your game and after that you can see if you can earn enough money for living from it. Just a few months will not be enough in my opinion.
It's very difficult to have a profit playing for your poker money. A very small percentage of players know how to do this. You need a lot to learn. That's why I chose an easier way to make money and play only freerolls. Although it is not big. But I know for sure that I will not lose my money.
That's only $5.81 / hour. If you use an average 50 hands per hour you need around 6BB / 100 hands at a basic $1/$2 poker game. Should be do-able online or in casino/poker room without an enormous bankroll.
Always wondered if I spend half a year of time on poker, will I have a chance to earn my living from 1000 $ a month ?? I've been playing for five years as an amateur, nothing works out (
Very easy to do live playing 1-2 cash, but if you are doing it for a living you will need at least a $5k bank roll for variance.
Playing online, I find that the 6 man double-up SNG's some rooms offer seem to have the least amount of variance for me.
You have to be very strong mentally if you are going to do this for a living, can't get TOO attached to hands and have to understand to either get up or switch tables when someone is clearly outplaying you, don't let it get to your head.
There plenty of building blocks to work on to get that level. Maintaining a bankroll would important. Working up to the necessary stakes would be another. Putting in the time away from the table for education.
There players here at this site who have do it. Lot poker pros out there so not inconceivable. Good luck with this quest.

For me, it's limited to playing for enjoyment. Love the game, the challenges it presents, and learning ways to win. This is a good question. I personally take into consideration the pro players that have done what you are asking. Not too many, or so it seems, are making it on play alone. Otherwise, I would think we would be seeing the same names showing at the top in the majority of tournaments. My experience, I call Ying & Yang. I win, I lose, I start all over again. Been on that track for years. Shucks. Always open to suggestions, no matter how old I am nor how long I have played. Good luck if you plan to give it a whirl! Sounds like a real challenge, with lots of stress to me though.
If you win a big one you could allocate some of the winnings for poker and the rest to live on. But you get what you pay for so you will probably have to risk a semi to high buy in to make money anywhere from 500+ buy in.
Yes, you can earn in poker, but for the constant earnings you need a good bankroll and a very good game skill in order to be able to play poker at good rates or buy expensive tournaments and try to win, but it's better to play the cash game at normal rates and raise the bankroll!
If you dedicate a lot of time to improve your skill, have a good bankroll management and discipline in order to 1) study regularly and do all the boring job like reviewing and analysing hands of your own or your opposition 2) make right choices while playing, you can't afford goofy hands if you wanna go professional and 3) I think the most important and maybe the hardest part - follow bankroll management that you have set for yourself no matter how it will seem boring for you at times or how you may feel that you are able and deserve to play higher.
So yeah, discipline and studying and you can make it. But as you will have to treat poker as a job, I don't think it will be that fun as you may think because I highly doubt you treated poker seriously for these five years.
If you asking about possibility of living for money from poker, for sure this is real. I,m not sure, is it real for you, but as you can see lots of people play poker only and they have enough money for all, that they want.
You need to improve your game, if you will be good enough, of course, you can win.
You need to invest time and have discipline. Invest time in learning first and then in playing. You need to decide if you want to play cash games or tournaments and prepare yourself and learn as much as you can about the game. And with good bankroll management its possible.
I hope to earn money on regular basic as well. The reason i started play poker is the person i meet 2 years ago - all this man's income come from poker, he didn't do any other job more than 10 years and he id doing really good money and traveling the word. It was my inspiration. I play poker about one year now, not very regular, but can see lot of progress and hope to make really money soon. wish all you the best in this matter. One Love,
I think that in order to have a profitable level in poker, we have a good base that allows us certain losses in case we do not do well in a session so at least we will be able to equate ... otherwise, without being stable, it would be a bit complicated.
The problem most people seem to have when trying to transition from playing poker for fun to playing for an income is the very fact that the game they love has become work/a grind. And, like any other "job", you have to be mentally strong to be able to push through the bouts of boredom and monotony.
Ome also has to be realistic about one's chances at being very successful at poker over a long period of time.
It can be done, obviously, but expect it to be very difficult.
You can make money in poker if you spend a lot of time and energy on it. But is not it better to spend this time and energy on the acquisition of a good profession, and earn as much. This is my personal opinion, I do not impose it on anyone.
Whether you succeed in poker or not depends on many factors. It seems to me that there is a place for experience, skills, knowledge of mathematics, knowledge of psychology, and of course luck. All these factors should allow you to earn money in poker, one without the other is hard to work with. My father was very successful at poker, winning a couple of times, but soon his luck ran out. I wouldn't really expect to win money playing poker myself. I'd rather do something more real that will definitely make me money. I chose to teach English online as an https://yourmoneygeek.com/best-side-hustles/. Having done the work, I am sure that I will get paid for it, and not Vice versa.
I think it is not possible to make long-term profit especially with online poker. If you're a good player, you might get a win rate of 5 big blinds for 100 hands. A low win rate has a dramatic effect on variance. It is just not enough to play 2 hours a day at 2 tables. So you will lose against the variance. You have to play 20 tables for 8 hours a day (and that against bad players too) to make the variance disappear.
It would be a lot easier to make an income in Live poker because of the chances of more recreational players and not so much rake. With online I pay a lot of rake playing extra hands because its fast and there are a lot of players who have found their pattern online and do it all day for a small profit repetitively. It makes some of them a living but it takes work.
