Hi guys,

I am playing online poker recreationally but I am looking for something to work on because
I work only 20 hours a week and I have lot of free time.

I work as customer support from a home and I work only 20 hours a week so I am looking for something
to work on.

I was trying onther bussinesses but I failed bcs I dont have focus but when I play online poker I have hyperfocus.

I can play 5 hours in row without food and time flies very fast. As a customer support I make monthly $800 which is
good in my country and I can pay bills etc.

I am now 25 so I am looking for something to work on but I do not have huge passion for poker but I can develop passion
when I will be succesfull in online poker.

Do you think I should start playing poker seriously? It is the only thing I can work on really hard bcs I have
adhd and I cannot focus on other bussiness really bcs I dont have focus on other things. Only on poker.

Do you think I should take it seriously? I am confident I can make it to NL200 this year with lot of free time I have.

I hope you can help me to decide somehow :) Have a great day.

Is realistic go from NL10 to NL100 in 6 months?

I dont have passion for game but I enjoy playing.
I will play on PS: Zoom tables.
I have average IQ maybe slightly under average. (+-100)
I am playing poker as hobby only 2 years.
I can commit 60 hours a week to study+play.
My talent is photographic memory and long term nemory.
I dont have fundamentals I only know what are pot odds, implied odds and position.

Why I want to do this?
I work from home as email customer support but it’s terrible job. Lot of rude customers (80%+) and lot of complains from boss
and low pay for ton of sent emails per day. I dont want find normal job outside of home since I am used to this comfort and
poker seems to be good option. I can work in this job only 18 hours a week and then the rest of the time dedicate to cash games
since I dont have girlfriend, family, kids. (I am 25y)

*My vision*
I want to get to NL100 and when I will be getting decent income from these stakes I will start building second
stream of Income which is Ecommerce bussiness.. I cannot start this bussiness because
you need to have $5k as starting capital. I also believe with poker mindset I will be able to skyrocket this bussiness.

I look on poker as good starting point to fund my bussiness investment in future and sharp my decision making skills
which will benefit me. I cannot work hard as customer support because its impossible for me.

I will must type 80 hours per week and maintain 75 wpm typing speed which means I will most likely burnout in month
because it hapenned me once. So I cannot save $5k for my future investment from this job basically. Maybe there are other
side hustles that are much easiers like flipping things on ebay etc. but I developed good relationship with poker and its almost
guaranteed success if is person willing to work hard.

I prefer answers from players that play NL100+ but I will be happy for every answer to give me some clarity.
Thank you so much for your time if you read to this sentence :)

Post | kratossuperman posted in NLHE: Where to begin ??


I am playing poker recreationally and my goal is make side income like $500 per month and then for living..(In our country you need pay only $600 for rent and If I can make in long term $1500 monthly it will be awesome).

My worst problem is where to begin in learning phase like what learn first because there are so many videos..

Mayme learn first math like pot odds, implied odds, combinations,quantification ?

I was making decisions like join some complex poker coaching site like Upswing but I see too much value here but dont know where to

I wanna be realy good poker player and crush NL50 in this year.

Thanks for advices and your time reading :)
