Ok, Heres my Question, In your opinion do i have what it takes to become a professional texas hold em poker player, I'm dedicated and in my opinion i think i can make it but i want the opinions of others heres what you can base your answer on. - I was introduced to poker at age 12 didn't really take it that serious knew the basics im now 17 - Started playing proper serious when i turned 16 after playing a local tournament and winning 300 - Now playing in tournaments (PKR,Party poker) i play every day without fail probably for 4 hours+ - Every Tournament i play theres anywhere between 400-800 players for Party Poker and 100 for PKR over past week and half i created a new account and recorded my results, Tournaments Played - 9 1st Place Finishes - 2 2nd Place Finishes - 1 5th Place Finishes - 1 (Had to go to work was chip leader) 12th Place Finishes - 1 ( Pre flop all in my New Mexico Clubs vs Someones Pocket Kings) Top 100 Finished - 2 ( Both bad luck) Taking into consideration that on the pro poker circuit depending on the amount of players say the Top 100 Cash (Make Profit) with the winner getting hundreds of thousands Also take into consideration that allot of the time the same pros's don't get to final table and they don't always cash no matter how good they are but to be a successful pro you don't even have to cash every tournament. I know its one long question but just looking for opinions.
9 tournaments is nothing to base anything on. But what are the stakes you are currently playing? 4 final tables with 2 wins in only 9 tournaments and you should be up a couple grand already, no?
Paid thousands of dollars to get into big tournies, played extremely well, and won bracelets. if u want to become a pro, you need to play in those online satellites that work you to the big tourny. These will buy you seats into a real tourney. But playing online, you have got to be either really ballsy and very lucky. The community cards you see and the hands other people play are insane and it's rough to play. Real life poker is so much better than online!! GOOD LUCK!!!!!
I have a friend who plays professionally. He has played in the WSOP and he placed really well (36th). He himself only considers himself semi pro. He has made a living off it but like others have said, everyone has their hot streaks and their cold streaks. I've seen my friend lose 200K+ in just over 3 months and win it all back in a month. There is so much variance in poker that 9 games isn't really enough to base it off of. Try play lower stakes and build a bankroll until you have about 25x the buy in you are going to play and then move up.
9 Tournaments is absolutely meaningless. It looks like you are just getting lucky. Play atleast 1000 tournaments and tell me if you are still winning.
