I generally use On-line Poker as a training tool, so that I can practice trying different playing styles, and see what works best for me. It is nothing more than a Hobby and I certainly don't want Poker to be a Profession. But it does give me confidence when I play Live games, simply because I do know how to play against other players.
It would be difficult for a working person to consider poker a full-time job in addition to his regular job.
And you have to reach a higher level (even playing in higher buy-in tournaments) to be able to call it a full-time job.
A friend of mine told me that he tried to make a living from this, and he burned out several times, and felt like he was going crazy to do only this.
But all my credit goes to those who can do it full time. Poker remains for fun/hobby for me.
its an extremely interesting hobby, as others, i tried to generate a secondary or acceptable income, but, i was feeling im gonna get crazy too haha, i love poker, but is for me a very hard and undesirable work to have.
Im still playing 3 to 4 times a week and enjoy it a lot
