Might have something to do with not playing draw games well.
You're probably being facetious, but anyway....
Everyones got a cap, and some reach a cap higher than others.
Beating live poker already puts you in a small group.
Beating it for a living puts you in a smaller group.
Beating it as a semi pro, even moreso.
Beating poker for $75K/year or more, over a decade or more(my personal def of a professional player), has to be an absolutely miniscule group of people.
I wouldn't sweat it if the highest I could beat was $100-200 LHE.
If you want recognition, go play donkaments. If you want self satisfaction, pick something outside of poker. If you want to make a living doing something without set hours and without a boss, you could do a lot worse than $100-200(or for that matter, $40-80).
