I think I caught Stupid from Blinders
Before I get to the title.. My vote for AlCantHang bacon winner is Mary hands down. I mean this gives all new meaning to debauchery.. fucking your chick while eating the fried bacon off her body.. WOW! Gimme some bacon!!!
Ok.. So anyway.. I am back to almost broke which is cool.. I am currently crushing the 2$ HU n000bs.. heh. At least it is fun. Since I caught the stupid bug from Blinders let me ask this question: When is Poker actually ever profitable?
Now this could mean a lot of different things to a lot of people but what level do you need to play to make any kind of meaningful money... I know some of you work at S-Mart.. Shop Smart.. Shop S-Mart! But.. If you have a decent job then when does this poker thing become profitable. I mean we say that making 5/bb hr is pretty good in poker right? SO at 1/2 NL your talking 10 bucks an hour? Did I do the math wrong? 2/4 jump way up to 20/hr.. umm.. hello.. am I still a fucking n00b who just graduated college? Do I really care to make entry level money.. So to make any real money are we jumping up to like the 10/20 game?
Ok.. Now we are talking some good money.. I can live on 80/hr.. but is my expected win rate going to be 5bb/hr at higher levels? Is it just as 'tarded as the low levels? I am pretty sure it is not. MOST decent players probably will never be able to play this high.. so is it worth playing poker for monetary reasons if you actually have a good job? Seems kind of stupid.
So what is a good reason to play if building a bankroll is never going to be a hugely profitable endeavored? Hit the lotto in a big tourney? Fun? Meet people? Suckout on the river? Hmmm.. Maybe Veneno has it right after all...
