Most decent grinders at 2/4+ will do this pretty easy. Id say atleast 2,000. Also your all forgetting about guys playing live a couple times a week, this would be possible at 5/10NL and 10/20NL for sure. Factor in live donkaments etc atleast 5k but probably many many more.

How many people have earns over 4 PT BB/100 over huge samples at 2/4 on stars and full tilt? Is it really over 50 or 100? I don't know the answer, i'm just guessing. Also many of these ppl. actually lose money taking shots, playing higher, and entering some tournies for the fun of it. Sure they may be +EV sometimes and some will make a bunch and have big years, but on average a few live tournies will be more of a ilability then a help...

Poker players never lose, so I think everyone.

Short of that, not many. There are about a bazillion easier ways to make money besides playing poker.

i love how alot of people are starting their arguements with: "so assume a 5/10 regular, beating it for 3ptbb long run...." chk out the datamines, there are not many 510 regulars beating it for 3+.only the very good ones are.

now, of course lots of players who could beat 510 for 3+ are already playing higher, but there just arent that many 510 regulars beating the games for what people may think.

people over estimate the [censored] out of online winnings.

i would love to see one graph of >$250k at 3/6 and below for the year, much less many. there arent nearly as many really succesful regs at mid and hi stakes as people think there are.

i would be surprised if the number is over 1000.

I'd say 750ish is a good estimation.

Although I think if you did July-December, a lot more people will have made more than $125,000.

I think a lot of people had to adjust to the games towards the beginning of the year, and are now doing much better

This is very true, tons of these regs probably have wrs in the 2-3 range and play in the 20-25 hr/week range. Question is better phrased as people who have made $250k/yr at least 2 years in a row.

There's at least 25+ that I know of personally in Vancouver. Extrapolating that, 2000+ plus seems reasonable.

Confirmed...Snake8484....Bigluck...Buck21....Jucif er...Kitty....Silly rabbit....and that is just the ones you all may know there are a bunch of rich players here. I play a weekly game with a friend who plays cash on Prima and pulls $15-50K monthly off it.

I did it last year including rb. Won't do it this year, mostly cause I was burned out and didn't really play that much first 4-5 months.

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.
