    best single result was £ 3450 in a large Multi Table Tourney. Normally play HU $50 / $100 SnGs and to be honest probably lose more than I win. The rake structure in heads up sit n go's is pretty bad, so you gotta win 7/10 games to be up ever so slightly, and 8/9/10 to be up good money. Of course winning 80% of the time HU is nigh on impossible as even the worst poker players get lucky

    I used to play poker full time, but i never went above 10nl. First weeks i was making nice cash by farming low stakes, then i got addicted and lost everything + even more. Im really happy that i stopped playing.

    I play poker with my friends once a month. It's quite awesome, a bottle of Scotch, $50 enter fee and the party begins!!!

    Online, I don't play much except Zynga poker from time to time, mainly just to kill some time.

    I would love to be able to play like this guy, and earn as much as he does right now :D

    I play just for fun. I don't like internet games - no atmosphere at all!
    When you meet face to face ... oh, that's another story!

    I always play live, never really got heavily into the online.
    Live Tourney - $13,000ish
    Live NLH - Largest Pot - a little over $4,000
    Live PLO - Largest Pot - $3200

    I did place 4th in an online tourney once for $1300

    I was also at a table that hit the bad beat jackpot and won $1800 for being at the table. Minus the $300 I lost on the hand....long story.

    Fuck yes I do.
    I play multitable SNG tournaments (8-12 tables) and whenever I want some money to invest into projects I do some grind sessions...
    However I also have some... Lets call it... passive.... poker income ;)

    Poker was my life and primary source of income for years. Before Black Friday, poker was my full time job. Playing approximately 30 hours a week for years on Pokerstars and Full Tilt. Online, I was multi-tabbing usually 6 tables of 2/4NL to 5/10NL. Live poker, I would play either 5/10NL or 10/20NL. After Black Friday, I moved to Las Vegas to continue my poker career. But it has since become a part time job as I have started a couple business ventures. I do still wish and hope for online poker to come back to the US as I much prefer online poker to live poker.

    As far as winnings, lifetime winnings would be over a quarter million dollars but for single days I've made over $10K on many occasions.

    10/20 NL can add up. You play at Aria or Bellagio?

    There's too much thinking required for poker.

    Started at PokerStars, later progressed to Full Tilt (which still owes me money I"ll never see after the gov shutdown)....then out of desperation moved to Bodog (before it got re-branded to Bovado).

    Never lost much online. Played smaller tables tbh on there.

    Largest win online $2000

    Largest win offline maybe $450

    Hard to find good players to deal with offline. I hate playing with people that don't know what they are doing. Most poker players prob say this about themselves but I am a pretty good player...not pro, but absolutely above average.

    I have won many small sit and gos, and placed well in big tournaments! There are still places to play online poker here in the US legally!! I Play regularly at Bet Online Poker, Lock Poker, and Carbon Poker! Mostly freerolls, and some other low buy in tournaments! These sites are not as big as Pokerstars, or Full Tilt!! But have close to 10,000 players online at peak time..
