Maybe limit would be best to start so you don't go through the money swings. October 22nd, , 1: Originally Posted by canucks October 22nd, , 7: I manage to grind out about a bucks a month.

I've never deposited and cash out once a month. Sometimes if money added games. I play games most of the time. I also still play some freerolls.

I probably play in excess of 40 hours a week. I spend very little time just studying. I've never read a poker book and rarely read poker strategy. I use no software. I started playing online in Oct I did not have a steady bankroll until mid In June I cashed out almost my entire bankroll. I then built it back up again, almost to where it was, by mid July. Since then I have cashed out the end of each month. Each month it has been easier to rebuild than the last.

Just a month so far, so no, it's not even close to being my primary income. But it is nice to get paid for my hobby. October 22nd, , 2: Started a couple of years ago on Bodog , with some freeroll money. Along the way played in a bunch of tourneys and cashed numerous times. Recently took a second in a 90 man, nice jump in bankroll.

Keep grinding and dont play above my level. Full Tilt has been giving me problems, mostly negative returns, but hopefully I can turn that around. Good Luck on the tables. October 22nd, , 4: I can only say that through about SNG's I am ahead by a very, very little bit. Tiny enough that even a modest downswing will put me in the red again. So, no, I don't make a profit playing online poker.

I play hours a week. Time improving my game? Maybe hours a week? I have been playing poker for about two years, at my current level for less than a year. Thank you to everyone who replied to my questions. It has been helpful. I will continue to learn and to study and play freerolls to increase my bankroll. My game has improved over the past months. I feel like I am finally "getting it". Thanks again to everyone.

It is not NL Hold'em. These are real numbers from real pros in Florida. But, it all depends on how much work you want to put in. The amount of work you put in to making yourself a better poker player will determine how much longevity your poker career will have. Poker is a game that is difficult at times, and very easy other times. It all depends on how you approach the game. Even at the lower stakes games there is a lot of money to be made if you put in the hours.
