Can You Make Money Playing (Online) Poker?
Today, we are going to talk about whether you can make money playing (online) poker or not, and what difficulties and advantages come with it.
If you been wondering too whether poker can be beaten consistently, i can give you the answer: it highly depends on different factors on which we will go into detail on this page, but generally yes.
Factors like ambition, expectation and your own skill level play a huge role.
If you think it’s easy, I must disappoint you. Making money playing poker is not easy, at least not if you have mid to high expectations regarding your expected income.
Everyone can make a few bucks playing micro stakes against weak opponents who have no clue but that might not been what you asking as a few peanuts don’t help too much in life.
It is even relatively easy to make $1500 every month, and even easier if you want to make $100-$500, but where it gets hard is when you aim for the stars and want to make a relatively high income of $5000+.
How difficult is it to get an income playing poker?
Not too easy and not too complicated. It is a very flexible question which demands very customised answers.
The lower your expectations are, the less likely you will be failing at achieving your goal of making money playing cards. Thinking of it as a get rich quick option will lead to disappointment and frustration.
Becoming a professional poker player takes years of dedication, time, and organised effort.
Different games and stakes have contrasting player pools with different skill sets. If you want to beat the highest stakes at Pokerstars as a beginner, Good Luck. That is literally impossible. Best way to lose though.
However, if you are just aiming to make $1.000-$2.000 every month you have plenty of options to do so effectively. When you play low-stakes poker, you will not face many competent opponents, so you have an easy way making those wished winnings.
But playing low-stakes poker won’t make you rich. And even when playing a lot, you will barely spike through the $2.000 a month. It is all about repetition in the beginning.
Play, make mistakes, learn, repeat and move up.
There has not been one professional poker player that hopped right into the high-stakes and had success.
The best way to get better at poker is to join a poker school or to get a coach that watches over you and assists you in finding answers to your questions. We are one of those pokerschools 🙂
Below i will show you different poker games of which i will show for each a difficultie rating which shows how easy it is to make money.
Below, I will show you how difficult it is to make money with poker in different games and on different stakes.
100 is very difficult and zero is the easiest.
As you can see cash games is the most competitive field. You might want to think twice before attempting to attain a satisfying win-rate here. Even VERY experienced players have a difficult time gaining an edge and that with years of experience. If you are new to poker – stay away from the cash games.
The reason why sharks occupy cash games is that there is a lot of money to make.
Then, the second “worst” choice for beginners that have the aim to make money is to play Sit and Gos. Although they aren’t too competitive, they will not lead you to Richville. Excellent choice for newbies though!
The bright and untouched 1# poker games to make easy money are poker tournaments. Low competition, colossal price pools and entertaining. Almost every poker player loves tournaments, and hence the pool is full of bad players who lose their patience which results in enormous return on investments.
