      WELL FOR ME, started with $50 earning $2.65 perhours. Play 2 tables NL0.10/0.25.

      How long are you likely to take?

      Is expected that will exceed at 3 months because do not well me
      If u expect to make 5k$ in 3months then u are more likely to go broke even sooner. Also I'll assume that by beginning play u mean SSS and it'll take far longer that way. BSS isn't advisable yet unless u have solid poker knowledge.

      like 10 minutes?

      of course you'll have a huge chance of going broke, but hey you said nothing about what's an acceptable risk for you

      LOL unless your capable of 12 tabling (minimum) and can still play your A game and not let beats affect you then it's not going to happen. You'd need to play a good 300,000/400,000 hands to achive that target. This also asumes that your capable of beating limits upto and including NL200.

      Theres also the matter of finding enough time as i asume you have a job etc.

      the more u think about the money, the more it's gonna take.
      play poker, improve ur game constantly, and money will flow.

      why would anyone play 250k hands on NL25, win, and never move up?

      there are just too many variables to this question for anyone to give a definite answer.

      It can take anywhere from 1 day to 1 year or more.

      I would like to quit my job and concentrate on poker HOWEVER, peoples surround me would never like the idea b4 they saw me winning big money 1st as a proof.

      ATM, i'm quit happy with my winning rate perhour since i'm playing less time with SSS.

      While writting this i just won this hand started with buyin $5. Won 3 times from the same person.

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:

      MP3 = ($20.26)
      CO = ($5.00)
      BU = ($25.25)
      SB = ($12.84)
      BB(Hero) = ($11.84)
      MP1 = ($25.07)
      MP2 = ($4.55)


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 3, 9.
      2 folds, MP3 calls $0.25, 3 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.6) 3, 2, 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $0.50, Hero raises to $1.50, MP3 calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($3.6) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.00, MP3 calls $3.00.

      River: ($9.6) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.09, MP3 calls $7.09.

      Final Pot: $23.78.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a full-house, threes full of nines(3 9).
      MP3 shows two pairs, nines and threes(6 9).

      Hero wins with a full-house, threes full of nines(3 9).

      Sure you can, $5K is the minimum prize pool. Surely its possible for heaps of people to register and bump it way over that.

      enter a $10 tournament with 5000 players and finish First.


      Goodluck.



      also the chances of a 5k guaranteed tournament ending up having a 50k prize pool is not very likely. the total money usualy goes very little over the guaranteed amount.
