Re: After 3 years of fail I become a winningplayer finally!!

Well, I see. But still, to compare some spare time poker player's hourly profit with his own straight-outta-uni wage, is equally wrong. If I could make a tenth of my s-o-u. wage playing poker, I would be so **** happy

someone under 25 making $20 an hour playing poker isnt baller by any means, but it sure isnt sad either. if you can make $20 an hour and play 40 hours a week you are doing pretty well for yourself especially considering this is the worst hiring market since the great depression

Re: After 3 years of fail I become a winningplayer finally!!

Cliffs:

-OP fails at poker for 3 years straight
-Pull his **** together and crushes NL100 over 100k hands
-Says he'll never give up and that all you have to do is try again and again and again...
-Looks for extra action and blows his roll at the PLO tables.
-Says he'll never recover from the PLO meltdown.


Conclusion: PLO crushes souls.


Joke aside, OP don't give up. PLO is definitely the harshest game out there and there's still money to be made playing NL if you think you just can't take PLO variance.
Also, PLO doesn't have to be that swingy. It'll always be swingy but you can play a 25/15 game and be a huge winner until pretty much the high stakes, hence seriously limiting your exposure to the insane amount of variance inherent to this game.

If you were crushing NL100 for almost 10bb/100, you definitely have what it takes to be a winning player up to 2/4 (if you work hard on your game), where you'll be able to make a good living.

5/10 is an equalizer for a lot of people, but you can't know until you get there.
