IMO a lot of the naysayers here just cant fathom people winning 250k because it's absurd to them that someone else can be winning more $ than them.

It's simply outrageous how many people that I know personally will make 250k+ this year. And I pretty much stay out of the poker community and go about my own business. I dont know anything about tourney players, dont have any 2p2 friends, and dont play live.

[/ QUOTE ]

I think a lot of people are saying it because everyone just makes assumptions based on winning at rate which is not realisitic for 99. something percent of people, playing a number of hands which is not realistic for 99.something percent of people. Serious question, how many do you think you know who will clear 250k? Several of the skeptics here are actually people who do it but also just know well enough that there is a reason every single big datamine produces exponetially less winners of this magnitidue than everyone percieves there to be.

i liked your post and agree with it, but my god, "99. something percent"(wtf??) is still tilting me.

The kind of people who make the 250k are either

a) people who run good in the 1kNL+ games
b) people with redargoe'esque work ethic in 3/6 through 10/20
c) people who grind hard in the HU games, 2/4 through 5/10
d) people with a tournament score(s)

obviously im in category d

[/ QUOTE ]

fyp

anyone winning 2ptbb+ at 5/10 is easily clearing $250k in a year. and people beating 10/20nl are doing it as well.

whenever a thread comes up dealing with variance, winrates, total wins and or losses, count me in for going straight to ggbman's posts.

How many people will make more than $250,000 this year playing poker?

[/ QUOTE ]

If you belive everything that everyone tells you, 95% of the people who post here.

[/ QUOTE ]

People here love odds.

Most people who play poker lose.

If someone tells you they win at poker, the odds are they are lying. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Someone find the thread from last year asking the same thing

Thx.

[/ QUOTE ]dude. this thread comes up like atleast once a month.

IF this question involved any sort of consistency, the number would be VERY low. But if your just asking the # of people clearing 250k profit in this next year the number would be VERY high.
