Yes anyone can get lucky and make a final table or even win a tournament and win a little money. I’m talking being able to make regular withdrawals from winning. I have played for less than two years and win or final table on a somewhat regular basis, but I have never taken money out. I win a couple hundred then lose it or most of it before I get back there again. I call it the cycle and have a post describing it. I know some are lucky off the hop but. How long did it take you before you were actually winning enough to make regular or somewhat regular withdrawals?

One issue about making regular withdraws is that its not realistic depending on what you mean by regular withdrawals. I play in some larger events. To be fair and honest I only should make a final table once every 3 months. Depending on how longs its between big wins I many no have the funds to really make a withdrawal. Also know it has taken years just to get my bankroll to a amount worth withdrawing.

You mention you win then lose the funds. This is not abnormal again to some degree. Our rolls jump big when we win but between wins is slowly drops.

My advise if you really want to withdraw more is grow your stack and game. Moving up stakes. Once you have become good enough to win at a certain stake you should be able to withdraw a small amount regularly.

remember poker is a long term game and making money at it is not as easy as it sounds. Also playing 2 years you may have a lot to learn yet.

Best of luck to you.

I love to play but I can't :). That’s why I’m not angry if I lose my little prize. If I'm lucky, I'm happy.

Hello

I have played for less than two years and win or final table on a somewhat regular basis, but I have never taken money out.

Don't rush, you just have to be patient. And you are well done at the same time, you are on the right track, you can continue because the only chance to win a good amount and develop your skills is your participation in tournaments, and to double your luck you must take advantage of satellites, yes it is possible, you can play in a good tournament with a high buy-in Only via satellite so you can win a good amount that you can withdraw
Good luck to you and everyone

It took me 3 years for 1st place in the tournament and a prize of $ 725. But such a long term came out because I do not play for my own money. Only for the money from the freeroll and large winnings, I do not launch into the game, but withdraw.

I have won in what I would call 3 really good money tournaments, and gotten into the money on many small ones.

I'm happy to say that over the years, I have a very small profit, but not one that I care to brag about, except that I'm on the + side.

Mainly, it's fun.

The only times I’ve cashed out online is when I have won sportbetting or when I play live poker at my casino

If someone regularly withdraws money, they are already a successful poker player, he can almost make a living from it, this is very difficult to achieve.
I've been playing for a short time, but it seems almost inaccessible.
I play freerolls and micro limits, unfortunately I haven't won a bigger amount yet.
I have no expectations of myself, I just want to enjoy poker

Sometimes it seems to me that it is simply impossible to win at poker at a distance all the time.Lucky today, unlucky tomorrow, this swing never ends.

I can't think of the last time I won a big tournament, but I cash regularly. ROI is more important than winning regularly (although winning helps the ROI).

I think it's absolutely true, if you play don't enough tournaments. When you are in the game for about 10 hours every day and play multi-table tournaments + have a good level of play, you should be in the black for a long distance every month. It is also necessary to choose the right limits for yourself, the type of game and tournaments. I also think there will be a noticeable profit if you play from $ 3 and above. All that will be below is insignificant.

I don't have enough time, to play regularly for earnings. But at a long distance now I have +, even when I'm not doing it all the time. Very lot depends on the right choice of tournaments and the selection of the style of play and understanding how to play.

I know from my experience that the win/loss situ is an up and down thing which of course makes withdrawals of a significant amount unlikely, however, a few years ago on pokerstars I won regularly enough to make a few minor withdrawals. That has now changed to the point where any kind of withdrawal is almost impossible...the wins come once in a while sandwiched between numerous losses...I guess that's the nature of the game :):):)

personally, it took me 5 years. while I was learning the game and learning the basics of poker. later came to the conclusion that it is necessary to play less varied tournaments, a very correct table select where the number of participants is not so large. it paid off and I started to appear at the final tables much more often. yes, the prize money in such tournaments is usually less, but they are also more stable

we all start from scratch to play poker, and many make their bank with only freeroll, and from there you just have to be clear if you want to get to professionalize the game or not, once taken that decision you will take into account when you are going to make withdrawals for your personal expenses, you will take decisions according to your bank, my recommendation is to withdraw 25% of your earnings and the rest to continue playing, but you must also take into account that it is a reasonable amount of money, if you have little money you can not withdraw, but that will depend on each one.

I have been playing recently, but have not yet reached the level where I could withdraw money all the time. I don't get to the final tables that often, I get to the final table 4 times a year, but not once in all the time I have not won more than one tournament. This is very hard work, you need to be patient and have enough time for this. It is necessary to look at the number of players in the tournament, and what is the buy-in in the game.

It took me about 5-6 years. That is, in fact, 5-6 years I spent studying. In general, I have been playing for more than 10 years, and for the last 4 years I have been regularly withdrawing money from my accounts.
