      NL50 sh bss, you can easily make that. I think 200$ a day is possible even @ nl50.

      It sounds like you are planning on going pro! Which is a bad idea at NL50! If you have to ask about stats, I dont think you'll make it tbh. $100 a day is achievable, but when you hit a downswing of 5-6 BI's (small downswing) You simply wont be able to cope. The mental strain poker has on the brain when you play with money in mind, is not worth it on NL50. You didn't say if its FR or SH. In FR I play off 11/8 af 3.3, Which I think are pretty TaGish. I'n not sure about SH.

      I really wouldn't play with the mindset of winning $100/day. At NL50, concentrate on bettering your game instead of money IMO.

      Hi shloogy,

      I don't think that it is possible to make $200 with Nl50 on every single day a month as helemaalnicks said. I even think that making $100 isn't possible. I'll tell you why. You have to play every day, so you will get bored someday. You simply don't want to play, but then you have to ( If you want to make it for a living). A downswing can hit you and then your $100 per are not reachable. If you are that good to make $100 every day, why should you play Nl $50? Your skills would be good enough to beat NL $100 as well. If you want to play for a living I suggest to beat at least Nl $200 to think about that.

      I recommend to play like: 18/15/3/26 at NL $50

      But these are just terms of reference. If you prefer do play a bit differently it might work as well.

      Best regards,
      TribunCaesar

      I'm guessing these are SH stats? They seem to loose for FR, and seem to tight for SH.

      If these are FR stats, I think it should be tightened up abit, for NL50. In NL50 I wouldn't want to be playing that many hands.

      those are good SH stats for beginning on micro-limit 6-max. 18/14 or 19/15 is more reasonable, since you'll be flat-calling roughly 4% of hands (pocket pairs 22-99, the occasional limp behind etc, and SB completes

      that said, you shouldn't really aim for given stats, but rather follow some sort of SHC

      18/15/3/26 where 26 is WTS? i'd prefer closer to 20-21.

      Yes, these are SH stats and 20-21 is way too tight. You fold the best han way too often. To give you a range: everything between 23 - 27 is fine imo. ( depends also on your AF)

      Sure you can make it now and than but making 3k$ month you have to be really good card reader and as others said you than have enought knowledge to go up the limits.

      I just made 25$ on NL0,01/0,02 in hour and half but that happened second time in my short poker carrer and ofcourse i was running really hot with cards :D

      Heh, if a am someday able to make 100$ a day (=3000$ a month) i am quitting my day job. :D

      Some calculations.

      Lets say you have a winrate of 3ptbb/100 and you make 50k hands at NL100 per month. That is 3000$ per month = 100$ a day.

      You must have 6ptbb/100 at NL50 and 12ptbb/100 at NL25 at 50k hands to be able to make 100$ a day. But 50k hands is not little.

      So my answer in : NO. Maybe if you are very good and can put A LOT of hands per month.

      It is possible IMO. 50k hands IS NOT much if you are playing poker for a living. I make like 30k, and Im not even close to the idea.
      about the winrate for 50k hands, they are impossible to make @ NL25(althought thats exactly my NL25 stats after 15k hands), achievable @ NL50 and pretty standart @ NL100. Lets not forget you "Must" have some sort of rakeback deal, and that is an additional 1-2ptbb/100.
      So, for a conclusion - you can play NL50 for two months, save a little bit to go to NL100, where you should be able to make those money.

      funny u have mentioned a rakeback as i was exactly asking myself a tough question:

      1.a rakeback can be achived at full tilt which i have there an active account with popper bankroll to play nl50.(for sss, about 400$) BUT the players are soooo tight there its just to funny yo see those guys struggling month after month sure every once in a while a fish comes in for a little sneak peak but that's it the money is not going anywhere and the rake wins. did u ever try to table selection over there? its a shame in compare to poker stars...which is so good poker room full of players that will call your raises and pray for miracles but there is no rakeback at all, so do u guys thinkn its ok to play w\out a rakeback deal?

      2.maybe not a rakeback but something close, there is an option to buy a bonus of 50$ for every 5k points, do u think its worth it?

      thanks for the answers and all the help guys!

      If you learn to play omaha cash then .25 .50 can make you $250 a day (multitabling ofcourse)

      everywhere the reverse and worst is possible :) but its much more easy to lose 250 then make 250 :)
