Not true at all. If you read a couple of books/forums/practiced a bit ,and If you started with a bankroll necessary to 4 table (or more table) 30/60 or 2kNL plus, I dont think it would take very long at all to establish a win rate of 1k/day.
I disagree. I can't even play two tables yet without my win rate dropping off precipitously. Reading some books and practising 'a little bit' does not mean that you could successfully multi table 4 tables at a time. I think a couple years of consistent playing seems like a reasonable estimate (for a fast learner) to be able to multi table successfully.

This might be true, I dont know, but I do know that there is a lot of people who can/do make more than 100k/year, and if they played hardcore, never taking a day off, they could make 365k+ a year (assuming that this wouldnt kill all the fish).
I don't think you could ever kill off all the fish. It's an awfully large ocean, and still growing.

A couple of years?
Once a player gets a basic understanding of how to play most decisions are pretty much automatic, and if you are playing limit you really only have 3 choices, and sometimes 2 of the choices are close enough in value that it doesnt matter which one you pick (sometimes you should try to mix them up to randomize your play).

NL/PL is a little harder just because you have to type in(or click in) your bets, but it isnt really that hard.

Id say the biggest thing someone needs to play 4 tables is an understanding of Pokertracker stats to help in forming reads.

Okay, maybe not a couple of years, but I'm certainly not there yet. I still find that it always seems like I get playable cards on 2 different tables at the same time when I multi-table, and my overall play suffers from it. FYI, my first ever real money poker game was last new years eve, when I finished 2nd and was offically hooked. I'm just hoping to be able to call this a profitable hobby some day.

He said a 1000 a day playing poker. I suspect he did not mean avg. a 1000 a day playing poker.

So if you play 5 days a week, that would be 5 grand a week...250k a year.

And certainly, I suspect there are many that kind of money online.

2 tables of 5/10 nl = 100 an hour...10 hours a day = 1000 dollars.

2 tables of 30/60 limit = 120 an hour...10 hours a day = 1200 dollars.

Both seem very attainable. I am sure a lot of people are out there doing just that.

You would have to be machine, and a very boring human being, to be able to play enough poker online at 30/60 limit to clear 250k a year.

I know people do it, but I play about 20-25hrs a week, (my normal job is slack ;p), and it can get to me sometimes.

Thats also assuming you never have a losing day. People are probably able to make $1000 daily on average but I highly doubt someone has made $1000 everyday for extended periods of time.

Well, you've found somewhere that might help you rectify that. Keep playing/posting/reading/thinking.

I had a $100 day on Saturday, playing at a single $.50/$1 table for about 5 hours. Too bad it's not always like that or I'd never have to go to work.
