Merry xmas to you too Cool
Don't think any pro likes spending bit of time here but some '' semi-pro '' like Doomdy ( as himself said ) yes.
Probably some players were able to play in a big tournament; seems to me to remind one from Portugal played this year on WSOP but I don't remember his name.
Ragarding your post I choosed the third one

Already we have some really good players like doomdy or bigfoot ^^ they might make some great result if bankrollmob sponsorise them.
Its some kind of good idea. but thing is to know if they have enough money to sponsor players.
What's for sure makable is to sponsor on online big tournaments (for example sponsoring for the FTOPS), but i dont know how the player can make publicity for bankroll mob online (changing his nickname?)

would be intersting to know if any of our fellows has already participated in a WSOP/WPT/EPT.

and sponsoring few members would be a good idea but it's very expensive & i'm not sure BRM can really afford it & would get enough returns on th investment

I play poker for a living and have done so for quite some time now. I know some people have this weird idea that you have to play higher than a certain level to be a pro but in my opinion a professional poker is someone who's primary income is from poker which mine is. I never play higher than NL400 so if you think a pro must play high stakes then I am not a pro.

You never have the wish to play NL1000/NL2000? Dont get me wrong i think your doin a hell nice Job and basicly the same as me only different is i do it on smaller stakes.... Tongue
I mean wot is your reason not to play higher? Not ready for it? Not rolled for it?

@doomdy

2 obvious reasons. Im not rolled for NL1K/2K and im not skilled enough Disagree

Playing poker as a hobby is alot(HUGE A) different from playing for a living. You spent alot more hours on poker, you rely on good results, you can't stop when things aren't going your way you have to grind through it. You have to play and play good even when you don't feel like it which is hard imo harder than going to work when you don't feel like it because in poker you have to be 100% mentally stabile and good-humoured where in a normal job you can get your work done even with your head and mood somewhere else. Ect ect

I read alot about the transaction from hobby player to pro before I took the shot. Every article I read weighted how difficult the transaction was but I never really believed it 100%. That was untill I took the step my self it's hard to explain why I guess it's the constant psychological pressure.

------------
Edit...but yes I wish to play NL1K within a couple of years.

@ Turbo:

Yeh i think i understand wot ur sayin.

I really really have no pressure on me for earning pokermoney, also i have really nitty bankrollmanagement, so i have never ever scared money, also cos its not my income.
I sometimes make statements too other regulars that i am never scared to call (i only do this at regulars), also when i know i am behind. I recognize in future games with them i have now an edge on them, i can bluff them more.

Anyway nice story TY, allways thinking wots it like to be pro/semi pro Smile

You are in a very good situation doomdy, great job, great girl, great child and grinding your way up at the same time free to choose when you think you're skilled/rolled/mentally ready to take the final step to pro/semi pro. Keep your cool and pick your time Thumbs Up

If you play $10 DoN's and you got a 13% ROI you earn $1,3/DoN this means
you would have to play 154 DoN's to make $200(the $200 is just an example). I guess a DoN takes almost an hour so you can average a ~5 DoN's/hour which equals = $6,5/hour(30,76 hours to make $200)
I don't know your living expenditure but I couldn't make a living of this. So I would def wait if I was you especially when you have such a good job.

It's def easier to try to make moves on opponents when you're doing it for fun than when you rely on it being +EV on the other hand a pro is mostly better rolled than his non pro opponents which gives him the room to maneuver.

Sadly the games are getting tougher and tougher so we have to work harder away from the tables adjusting to the changes.

Well, i told my GF that i only considering to go pro if i make $10K+ a month average.
She wasnt very impressed by the amount just saying ''i hope ur not....''
Anyway $10 stakes 13% multi many hours a day still doesnt make much profit true, have a better roi on $20/$30/$50, multi these limits wud giv a better profit, guess $5K including bonusses/rakeback. So even multi the $50 not giving me the profit to say ''wow now its real bucks''
So for now i just looking around and keep my eye on the net looking at poker news Smile
My goal is just to go semi some day, i dont even know wot i mean with semi so ill just wait maybe 1 year maybe 6 years we ll see Smile

I think you have a very good approach to this doomdy. Looking back I was probably a bit too quick to jump in the wannabe pro shoes like many other youngsters dreaming of the pro life(not that I want fame quite the contrary, it's the life style I like). I think it's only really cool to be pro if you beat NL200+ maybe even NL400+ significantly and really have a passion for the game. If you only do it for the money you will weare your self down psychologically.

Many people also forget you have to make money not only to live, but for vacation, sickness, downswing, playing breaks due to death in near family or so, pension for when you get old, money/education to start another job when/if the games get so tough that you can't beat them or like now in DK laws say it's illegal to play for a living.

You really have to put some thoughts behind it cause you are not exactly attractive to the labour market after 5-10 years of the field as a pokerplayer(seen as a gambler in most peoples eyes). Personally I see a pokerplayer more as a salesman(sell bad odds buy good odds) or as a stock broker but sadly my opinion doesn't affect ignorant peoples opinion on the labour market.

Im off for Xmas, have a nice evening doomdy Smile

Getting back to the question, Yes I would like to see BRM sponser members for tournys. Unfortunantly, it's probably a bit more complicated than it sounds with legal issues, who qualifies and for how much.
