There are two main reasons for people to play texas holdem poker professionally and make it their job. The first reason is that it seems that to earn money with poker is easier than to have a difficult physical job. A player who spends 500 hours playing poker and then counts his average income for an hour understands that this game allows earning good money. Besides, you can play texas holdem online just at home and any time you want. The second reason is that poker gives a lot of excitement so some players are ready to pay for it. Poker doesn’t give real profit to such people. For some professional players online holdem poker is just a way to earn money during unemployment period. And only small part of professional players play poker during long period of their lives and consider it a job.
We often envy professional poker players. They can choose a place and time of work. They earn money without making much effort and at the same time travel around the world, meet new people, visit new countries, take part in different poker tournaments including freerolls (the tournaments where anyone can take part for free). And meanwhile their incomes are more than average earnings. The best work in the world. But the truth is that it is not like this. A real professional should estimate everything well: how many hours it is better to spend playing poker and at what exactly time. Their benefit depends on this. And level of incomes can differ depending on skills, luck and financial situation. For all professional players poker is the main source of profit.
