      Have been playing poker for about a year now, have been playing mainly 6 max sit n gos, have not made any money at all and consistently keep losing, do people really make money playing on line poker? :(

      Have read so many books and have spent lots of hours reading forums perhaps it is just time to admit im a fish!!!! My bankroll is down to 98 cents!! have been playing 8 cent games on titan!! I think what gets to me more is the fact that I earn 50 000 pounds a year in my real job, and have been spending hours trying to win a few cents at poker!!!
      I'm starting to realise the whole online poker thing is one big con!!! Does anyone on these sites earn any real money?
      Please if you can prove me wrong please let me know! I dont just mean the odd winner i mean lots of people on here!! Do you earn more than you would working?
      I spent tonight trying to up my bankroll and I could have just worked an extra hour in my normal job and made 25 times this!!!!

      Maybe 6-max S&G's arnt for you? Try something else? Maybe Full-Ring cash games?

      Online poker isn't a big con. People do win money consistantly. In order for there to be winners they need to be more losers. Aprox 10-15% of players are winners.

      of course people make money. otherwise it wouldnt exisit.

      why not try 9, 18, 27 or 90 man sng's? i made clearly most my proift at the 90 man on FT.

      As for your bankrole, if i was playing 8c games with that sort of income, i could not play my A game as i just wouldnt care. and th eopponents are likley just joking around. Put some of your own money in (a couple of hundred), play the $3 dollar games, and keep learning. it will turn around.

      I don't think he should play higher limit if he did not prove himself that he can beat those who think KQ is a monster. But don't know, I don't earn 50K pounds a year, maybe this really has influence to a game :)

      Try to not drink beer while playing. Works wonders.
