Sure you can, anyone can, Then why isn't everyone doing it?
The answer is staring you in the face, every time you register for a MTT you are playing against hundreds and sometime's thousands of other players all wanting to win and be number one, So for every winner there are literally thousands of loser's, that is the simple truth.
Poker is a game, and like every other game there are winner's and loser's, How much you win or lose is all down to you, Control this and you can be a winner.
1st and most important is your bankroll, you can deposit huge amounts of cash on any site, but if you play above your Bankroll, you are heading for disaster, Fact!
Most player's I talk to are happy playing Free-rolls, because they love to play, and if they win it is a bonus, and do build up a decent Bankroll that allows them to play in Micro/Low stake games.
2nd if you play for the right reason's you play better, putting extra pressure on your self by needing to win is the wrong way to enter any game, playing just for the pleasure of playing makes you more relaxed and you can enjoy the game, Win or Lose, If you win big, fine, job done, but if you are one of the many loser's, so what, come back tomorrow and try again, the important thing is by learning from your mistakes you can play better tomorrow.
I have had days when I couldn't win a sausage, I have had days when I couldn't lose if I tried to,
Poker Variance is like Life, sometimes you are riding high, other time's you are kicked in the teeth, you don't stop living because you have a bad day, you pick yourself up, dust yourself down, and start all over again, Same goes for Poker, losing a couple of game's is not the end of the World, Try, Try, and Try again and learn from past mistakes, Keeping within you Bankroll, and enjoying the game is all that matters.

When the fun Stops, STOP!

hello

Yes, it is totally possible in the long term with gambling behavior, I am achieving it without putting money at the moment with freeroll tournaments I have made profits

Poker is a hobby for me. Nevertheless, thanks to my participation in our community, I have significantly improved my skills, gained valuable experience and have already managed to create a good bankroll. In any case, I think the main thing is that the game gives us pleasure.

sure. Lots of people make money playing poker. Tons more lose money playing poker though. Then some just break even, spending hundreds of hours a month to basically win a little one month, and lose it back the next. tough cycle

I make money every month. But, the key here it's very small amounts. Usually $40 to $60 dollars a month. That's not much to most people. For me it equals to somewhere around 5% of my monthly income.


I'm 75 and live on Social Security, so any amount is better than no amount. :)

Make some money or make considerable money, two very different questions and way different answers. To make considerable money, the odds are stacked against you in so many ways but it could be done given the right personality and the proper amount of continual study of both your play and poker itself.
