This is a discussion on If you win million dollar tournament? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; if you dragged in a :rolleyes: tournament, how would your life be different?
It is unlikely that my life will change much after a very large win. Well, except that I will not necessarily have to work and I will have the opportunity to buy what I want within the acceptable framework.
Without a doubt, my life would be completely different. I could start my own business and I could devote more time to my favorite hobby. And I would buy my girlfriend a car so she could ride it instead of distracting me while playing.
Probably very little would change in my day to day life. When you are happy and content with how you live daily, money for me is least of my troubles. That said, it doesn't matter about how little or how much of it you have.

Many nosebleed pros regularly cash for over a million it is only 200 x $5k buy in or 100 by $10k buy in which is not an infinite bankroll at the nosebleed level especially if clicking that rebuy button constantly.
Some players regularly cash for these amounts for example but still have a losing year due to having hundreds and hundreds of buy ins and rebuys at these levels.
Definitely would be fun to give these stakes a go if had a million though.
