This is a discussion on I don't think you can make big bucks playing MTT within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; When I look at some of the best player on WPN, it took them 3 years to make $130K, or $43K a year.

TheBoski, I see him in MTT and he is really good. But considering 3 years to make $130K as top 10 earning player on WPN, that isn't some get rich fast scheme. It is more like work your butt off 9-5 no benefit or vacation kind of grind.
And you have players that win the $1m or $6m but you look at their record, they lose it all back.
I suppose you presume there are countless poker players who believe they are all going to get rich quick, and they need correcting. I do not believe that the case.
I think most intelligent adults who dip into poker with a degree of seriousness know full well that poker is by and large a grind. Big winnings are the exception rather than the rule. The average player is not walking around believing they are going to be a multi-millionaire overnight- that's just a fleeting daydream at best.
The much more interesting argument/question would be what would it take to turn professional? So, if you could earn what you do (steadily) as a professional as you do in your regular job, would you choose poker?
re: Poker & I don't think you can make big bucks playing MTT
If you choose poker. I suggest you look at the poker streamers on twitch now. sponsored pros. These people put in a lot of hours. Sometimes more than a full time job.If there deep in a tournament sometimes 12 + hours. If someone think this is an easy way to make a living their kidding themselves.
