After 860 hours of cash play my 2014 profits have surpassed my gross annual income income for my FT job. While this may in part be a good indicator of how miserably I'm paid for helping people from slowly poisoning themselves, its also an important achievement as it adds a level of confidence that I have a good shot at making it if I devout more time to poker and less time making slave wages. In fact i could argue that my job is costing me money due to opportunity costs. As a small example as i sit here in Florida on my vacation i see i have played 44 hours of poker. It would take me about 8 weeks of FT work to make what I have so far durimg my vacation. Really this is all food for thought as I ponder on the merits vs risks of making a chane to "pro player" in 2015.
