A player at the beginning of his career, turning over tables and studying every day, takes around 6 months to 2 years to become a professional

A new way of studying is listening to learn, several podcats are being released with great content, and which one do you listen to?

Apparently it individually depends on the abilities of each individual. I've been playing poker for over 10 years, but I can't call myself a professional, although I make a regular profit from the game.

This would depend on a lot of factors but 6 month to 2 years is more likely not the way to look at it. There is a lot to learn in this game and even the best are still learning.

On top of being a good poker player - I feel like being a 'professional' is more of a decision which not all good poker players may want to be a part of. There are many great (in ability) players who only use poker as a side hustle, or perhaps a hobby.

It takes another level of dedication to try and make poker your primary (or large portion) of your income.

I personally don't believe that becoming a pro has a timeframe. It depends on your abilities and capabilities. Some are absolute naturals when it comes to the game. Also, I believe incorporating a good study habit will assist too.

I think that being proffesional could take much more then 6 month or two years. First it's depand on how much effort and work you put in, second, you need to play a lot to get an experience.
When you accomplish both, you can start calling yourself a pro.:)

I assume with the language obstacle, that what you are projecting is your wish fulfilment rather than reality.

Yes, I can think of some who claim they went from zero to 100 in their first year but they number a handful compared to the millions who play. I doubt but a tiny fraction of those who play as professionals today were declaring themselves as such within their first two years of playing.

Asking such a question is stupid.
Even if it takes 20 years, I think some people will make a big leap forward.
