>AskThePro with balugawhale: First, I think you should always plan on having some other source of income or two because relying heavily on poker is a dangerous idea. That said, if the average salary per month is 1000, and you're making 1500 on average, you could probably "go pro", but you'd want to have a lot of savings behind.
>AskThePro with balugawhale: Meh, i doubt it. Ring games have the benefit of being open-ended, so you don't have to commit your day to them. That's why I chose cash games-- i wanted to be able to leave when I wanted to. Things like 7-2 games or bad beat jackpots can help, but I'm not too worried about the format.
>AskThePro with balugawhale: well, i had a few trials first. I started running balugapoker.com which taught me a lot about structuring content and how to make commitments in business. I learned about how to talk about your products and things like that as well. I wasn't more concerned with micromanaging; the opposite really. I was concerned with how to create content I suppose. My family are all kinda entrepreneurs, so they helped a lot.
