But tbh you can't really blame people if they don't get you make a lot of money doing something they consider a past-time.
Like imagine if someone you knew made 20k a month with idunno, fishing or playing with toy trains, people would also be like: yeah well you make enough money doing basically nothing what do you need my 50 bucks for?
Poker is worse cus it has a stigma, most people know someone that lost their lifesavings on gambling and they feel the same about poker. You can't really blame them.
So far I have found that the ppl I care about that are not ******ed all understand I make money playing poker. Even my parents and they hardly ever ask stupid questions anymore.
They understand variance and they understand there is skill involved.
The people I don't really care about I just don't tell. I say I work from home for a website. They usually don't ask cus it sounds boring to them.
