someone playing four tables of $50 NL and making 4PTBB/100 hands will make on average ( assuming 320 hands per hour), that they're playing for 5 hours everyday, will make at least $1,920 on average and about another $480 from rake back=$2,400 in an average 30 day month. There are likely hundreds of PT part time grinders making that.

Off the top of my head, PTippers who make enough money to live off poker include Seb, Ozone, SwoopAE, Gus, Joeyjoejoejr, Bubbleboy, TWLLM, Red4eva, Kid Hustlr, Skeptix, KrappyKonnect, HHCMotu and a bunch of the Germans and maybe another 10 or 15 people who post here (listing everyone would take too long)

In other words, yes, it is possible to make money from poker

My July probably sucked more. 12 June to 12 July was probably about negative 6-7k live and negative 500 online.

Back to the online grind for the rest of July and August and perhaps a conversion to cash games...

I'll still answer MTT threads; it's not like i'm instantly going to forget how to play tournaments.

On that note though I will need a find a semi-coach to work on my cash games with me - still focusing on finding a new house and stuff at the moment and I have a week of contracting for my old boss next week but after that i'm going to hit the grind - still trying to decide whether to start as a winning 50NL player or marginal 200NL player.

Swoopae $50 cash games are full of grinders right now. It's a lot harder for a tourney player to switch to ring games than it is for a ring game player to switch to cash. At tourneys I see mainly fish, even at SHNL I see about 3-4 grinders at the tables every time I play. LHNL is softer in my opinion and $100 no harder and maybe softer than $50 NL.
