So you want to go pro huh? Sign up for a few poker accounts, play a few hands, retire to aruba?

Well, it's not quite that easy.

I've been supporting myself by playing poker for two or three years now. I've had part time jobs in that time, I've taken time off to live up a mountain, but mostly, I've been clicking Fold, Raise, Call (in that order of frequency).

You don't need 20K though. My poker bankroll typically hovers at around 3K (until I hit a 100BB downswing like this week :mad:). That's 300BB for the largest limit I typically play.
