Profitable (at tiny stakes) beginner (my assessment of my skill level) who plays semi regularly (frequency).

I voted beginner.

Choose the option that best defines you at your current poker level.
I'm probably an ordinary player with an ordinary income :)
Once upon a time, I thought that maybe one day I would become a professional player, but over time I realized that for this I need to spend much more time and effort on the game than I can afford, so I decided to be just an ordinary player with an ordinary income :)

I'm a semi-professional player because of my game, but unfortunately I don't have enough time to make a great poker career. But it's been my passion since I was 15 and I hope one day to be able to earn a living from poker.

I feel lost sometimes. There are moments when I can't believe the mistakes I make. So I'm a beginner

Recreational player. I have poker as a hobby, I don't study enough to be anything more than recreational.

Hobby Player, Recreational Player, Regular Player, but more Importantly a Profitable Player, I have never lost a Dime Playing Poker, Not of my own Money, sure I buy-in to Ring Games and Tournaments but I am only using the Money I have won already.
I made a promise to my dear Wife years ago I would never deposit cash on any Site and after over 20 years I have kept that promise, Live events are a slightly different story, but I stick to a strict bankroll Strategy both On-line and in Live games, and I can honestly say I am on the plus side for both.

Hi
I play for fun, so I don't know which option to choose from your suggestions. I'm definitely not a beginner, and I'm definitely not a professional. I play when I have free time, so I don't play regularly. Poker brings me profit, but for me this money does not matter, since we are talking about quite small amounts. I think I'm a "entertainment player" :)
Good luck

I chose the "regular player" option. I don't want to overestimate the level of my skills, and the fact that I am no longer a beginner is also a fact. I would compare myself to a middle fish that swimming among other small and middle fishes and trying to succeed in the ocean of poker. :poop:

Same for me. I play couple times a month live. I'm not in the profit, but have cashed twice. Hopefully one day I will profit, but who knows. Just enjoying playing for now.

It sounds like you've developed a disciplined and successful approach to poker, both online and in live games. Keeping your promise to your wife not to deposit cash on any site shows a commendable level of integrity and self-control.

Maintaining a strict bankroll strategy is crucial for long-term success in poker, and it's impressive that you've been able to stay on the plus side for over 20 years. It's clear that you've honed your skills and developed a deep understanding of the game to consistently turn a profit without risking your own money.

Your dedication to poker as a hobby while ensuring it remains profitable is admirable. It's a testament to your commitment to the game and your ability to approach it with discipline and strategy. Keep up the good work, and may your winning streak continue!

in the future we will try to become a professional player and do everything to do this. I hope that someday I will be able to play at a professional level and then tell everyone that I started with the Cardschat poker community and that many players will learn and come here to study and train as well as communicate, I hope I will be able to

I'd class myself as a recreational player, I'm comfortable and profitable at the micro stakes level but If I want to move up I'll have to devote more time to the game.
