Hello.
I am sure that there are such players among the members of our community. But personally I do not belong to them, although I dream about it. And I hope that someday my dream will come true.

Hi all!

Raise your hand who makes a living just from poker! hahaha Surely there are people in CC who are dedicated and live off poker! In my case I work with wood, luthier.
Thanks greetings




You have to dedicate yourself to what you are passionate about!

It is not my case, although I am working hard and studying hard to achieve that goal.

For me it is more a fun platform to play poker
To take poker poker more serious I would have to play onsite.

I stared to investigate some pros from my country, and I actually found Omaha4rollz talking about freerolls and micro ones on a forum in 2008. It's cute, cause I can see now how well-organised and wise he had been at the time, and he don't need another job right now.
In the other hand I watched a streamer who was made it, but broke at some point. He got back to a normal job for 6 months and have cash to continue, and after that he became a pro and no longer to have another job.

Oh wow...luthier...that is AMAZING. I used to build custom furniture years ago, I always wanted to work with instruments but never could take the time to study it. I always had this dream of building myself a harp guitar. You have a wonderful job, I wish you every happiness.

Thank you very much for your comment, colleague, I am glad that you like woods, so good that you know how to make furniture.
A hug! :)

Who really strives to make a living off of Poker?...Huh, makes you really think lol, I mean, there are influential people that play poker, but those that only play poker as their life? I mean, I can say I am going that route, because hey, I am pretty much done with celebrities or being a news photog, but, it is interesting, what have poker pros really done with their lives? lol. I get, they raised for charity or made an appearance, but..what have "you" actually done. It is an interesting thought, and I love the idea of exploring it.

I have to say that raising money for charity covers that idea right?


Cant be a bad thing...like Michael J Fox raising a billion for Parkinsons, etc

It's hard to make a living from poker, I think you need to know this game too well to get all the income you need.

It is possible and I know people, but I think that here we are because poker is a hobby and we can discuss our experience .

Unfortunately, poker is not profitable for me at the moment. But still, I actually work every day to improve my game. I am an optimist and therefore I am sure that my profit is waiting for me in the near future.

Small victories only allow you to pay for communications (mobile, Internet, television) from time to time. For more income from poker is not yet realized.

It is possible to make money for your life if you invest enough effort and try hard, but it's not in my case now. I still prefer playing poker as a hobby.

It's a hobby in my case (always wanting to play big tournaments like everyone else$) but it is an interesting point, I will be following the answers.

Personally, I make money from poker, but I do not make a living. I suspect there are very few members that are pro. Obviously there are Ambassadors like of Katie Dozier and Collin Moshman, but just regular members, not many make a living from poker.

Poker is not a source of income for me. I play poker in my spare time. I think that for poker to become a source of income, you need a good start-up capital and a well-structured strategy.

Hello, personally it is what I have been looking for since I met poker, to be able to make a living from this game, but we must bear in mind that it is very difficult to do so. I have tried but it has not been given, I hope that in the future I will achieve it, I do not lose hope and I keep trying to improve day by day.
