Have you been able to make enough to cover your bills? Is it somewhat consistent (winning)? How does your wife and family feel about it?
How much can you stomach when the stakes get REALLY high?
Well, I have officially been a pro now, for a total of 1 month and 1 day.
To give you an idea of the money, my first two weeks, I make just over $10k. My gf (no longer married for a year + now) COMPLETELY supports me and knows this is what I am and what I love to do. Her parents also completely support me as they know that I'm a long-term winner.
As for how to stomach when the stakes get really high? Not sure what exactly you mean, but I play within my bankroll. I play, 6 tables of 200NL online at once, so at any given time, I have $1200-$2000 in play at any one time, but I have over 80 buyins for my level, so while I do run bad on occasion, long term, my hourly winrate is right @ $100/hr. Kinda beats working for someone else, no?
Hope you enjoy the read and following!
