I was trying to say, that nowadays the effort you have to put in is much greater than 5 years ago.
Poker was an option because you could make a quick buck, perfect for a student.
Today that is no more possible . Have you done the math ?
$1K on NL10 short- handed equals roughly 150k hands a month at a 3ptbb win rate.
150 K hands equal roughly 30 hours per week if you play on 12 tables.
Thats an hourly of $8.
I didn't even count the time you should use to review or improve your game.
For someone living in Africa that is certainly much...
