involved in poker and how it could generate money for new jobs in the usa if they would
regulate it :) hahahaha ok or you could just say Tami pack your bags we are going to
Disney world! I believe in you! Way to go for your dreams andtake a chance to do
something you are good at and love! That's what life is all about! x0x0
You worked full-time at the petrol station?
Best of luck to ya RK .Hope all goes well keep as updated.
May ya cards be live and ya monsters hold
who would want to get stuck in elevator with joe poker and curt for 4 hours hands plz. gl
rk why not some ppl play miilion hands with less than 1 bb winrate just for bonus to make
money .id just decide which way id want to do it .gl gl
First thing i need someone who can decode what joe is saying I can't follow him....he
articulates so well lol. 2nd Just as long as you have things set in place to be
successful you'll be fine. Gotta have 6 months of living expense set aside and you gotta
have a really good Bankroll management rules set in place and boy discipline will be key
because the biggest thing I hear pros say about taking the jump is the stress levels jump
10 folds starting out. hold tough and give it ur all. Goodluck, wish you the best.
.... what are you talking about, i didnt ask to play you once?
online yea you would i cant play on good site like fulltilt and pokerstars like you cuz i
live in the us but in live poker i make good money maybe not as much as i would like cuz i
work alot but i would kill you in live poker last year winstar would comp my room that how
good i am but lately iv been takein it easy takeing care of my fam
Joe i cant keep up with what? playing 16 tables? i can play up to 24 mtts and 12 sngs..
its not that hard, and i mean if your so confident with yourself wanna make a bet? my 1000
to your 500? that ill make more money for the next 3 months then i would working?
i hope you do really well, but do you have a backup plan in case things go bad? do you go
to college? i'd actually think about keeping the gas station job since it's guaranteed
money, which can help you if you are going through a downswing. i bet you would be able to
do a ton in poker even with the job.
after a discussion with jregis on this topic, I must clarify my post . . .
have a respectable winrate of 5BB/100
in this instance I was referring to "big blinds" not big bets. As you know, there is no
big bet in NLHE.
However, I should have noted it in lower case letters to make the distinction, as in
curtinsea just told u how it is and im sure royal can not keep up with that at all so im
trying to be real here and help you out royalkid keep your day job ds people on here who
say gl they want a sucker like you to try and lose all there money or make alot just cuz
there scared to do so.....im just saying keep your job and play and forget about coaching
other just play the game and make money to make it by.
well, time for me to chime in lol
first, anytime anyone thinks ill of me on this site, please refer to joepoker and the
comments he makes, wherever and whenever he makes them I really am an
Angel by comparison
One must define "pro" before success or failure can be understood. If you think a poker
pro is just one of these guys you've seen on tv, a big time tournament player, and/or some
famous name you've heard of in online circles, then you have no real grasp of the concept.
You don't have to be a rock star to have a career as a working musician.
Like slo-mo said, most pros you've never heard of. In fact, anonymity is one of their
tools of the trade. To be a pro, you need to make a living. How big of a living is
entirely up to you, and in this day and age, the hourly you need to earn at the tables is
not as high as one would think.
But it is going to take a lot of work.
Are you going to focus on online play? You will need to be able to effectively multi
table. Successful online grinders are playing a minimum of 4 tables constantly, sixteen is
even better. You need to do a lot of volume, because long term ROI is not what you might
think. You also need to move up stakes as quickly as you can, because the higher the
stake, the more real $$ that ROI =
Cash tables are more lucrative than tournaments. I know a few who do well grinding
tournaments, even SNG's, for good profit. But most of the real grinders out there are on
the cash tables. Soft tables are harder to find these days, but they are out there. Table
selection is important, you want to play against players you have a real edge on. A table
full of regs is not going to earn you much. More likely, the chips will move around the
table, and you will be lucky to beat the rake.
Speaking of rake, you should pay heavy attention to the bonus programs and make sure you
get rakeback. On Pokerstars, there isn't rakeback, but you can still earn that back
through bonuses. You definitely need to grind your way to SNE and maximize those bonuses.
So what does it take to make, say $25/hr? If you are 10-tabling NL100 (.50/1.00 blinds),
and playing around 500 hands per hour, and you have a respectable winrate of 5BB/100,
your hourly will be $25 per
And then, over and above skill and success at the table, you need to be able to manage
money. You need to pay your bills of course, but you also need to move up stakes to
increase your hourly. Bankroll management (and by that I mean an entire strategy on how
and when to cash out, how much you need to maintain, how fast you want your BR to grow,
and what stakes you are looking to play) is crucial to success as a professional player.
Your Bankroll is an investment account . . . . the larger the balance, the more real
dollars you make at any given winrate. So growth is important. You may be tempted to
withdraw to pay bills, but this could hurt your earning potential. Balance is everything.
I'm sure most of us wish you great success!
What does how things are today have to do with going pro? I'm really curious as to your
line of thinking here. Going pro doesn't mean flashing lights, magazine covers and
sponsorships. It simply means he can support himself soley by playing poker. He's in
Canada so he can play both live and online as he wishes. Where exactly is the problem?
Joe who are you to tell someone not to follow their dreams, sheesh, get over yourself.....
Best of luck to you Royal I hope everything works out just the way you have it pictured
im just saying that royal the way poker is today u wont become a pro u have a better
chance to become manager at your gas job lol.....you will be broke in 2 weeks if u dont
get your job back its all down hill from here
Does that make them any less of a pro? There are a ton of pro's you've never heard of
because they grind it out day in and day out, away from the spotlight.
slo ho everybody has seen or heard about pro player trew online or tv unless u were there
when they won a wsop or any poker event witch i dont think u were
What are you talking about Joe? Who was only a pro through online poker and tv?
