  4. abi 6$, sorry dude. You would have to take shots and run like god, maybe even better.

  6. If you are willing to go broke and you use poor bankroll managment I would say there is a 2% chance that you could do this. If you use proper bankroll managment there would be pretty much no chance unless you won the mini-FTOPS Main event or something.

  8. If it were easy and reasonable, then everyone would be rich from playing poker. I'm not saying it's impossible, but you better run great and get through some pretty with fields.

  11. Regardless of the others itt, I think it's possible. Just study, put in volume, and run good. IMO, the only way it's happening is from MTT's though.

    it doesn't need to be from taking huge shots at the FTOP etc, If you hit a 10k score in say an $11-$50 buyin, then that gives you more ammo for the slightly higher buyins. Just stick to your bankroll limits and practice good BR management.

  12. Highly unlikely for OP. Maybe 50% chance at best for a stud player - and that is with run good.

  13. Depends on how many tournaments you play with a $50k first prize. Rediculously unlikely if you dont hit a 50k score.

  14. only one way to find out! but yeah, why haven't you done it yet? and with the tourneys it looks like you're playing, no. i feel like so many people, esp relatively new players, envision their poker careers where one day they're just going to hit it huge and never look back. for a very select few that has happened, but those results are def not typical. theres no way you can go from an average buy-in of 6 bucks to raking in 50k in 6 months playing high stakes mtt's. in fact, if you take your 4k and set out on this mission, you will probably go broke really fast. the players would just slap you around. not being a dick, there just really is so much difference in play between those stakes. if you set a goal like that, esp with such a short time frame, you are just setting yourself up to fail. i think that even thinking about the game like that is going to kill any chances you have of actually being a long-term winner. its all a process, and it takes a lot of time. even high stakes players who are long-term winners can go broke if they start extending themselves too much or losing focus. the big scores will come, but you have to put in time and be smart about it. move up gradually. turtle race, sucka.

    i like your positive attitude, that's the way it should be if you're a poker player. anything is possible, just keep working at it and don't give up. It may not be 6 months but you will get there if you have the right mindset and the work ethic.

    I say use half of BR for poker and take other 2k and buy 2000 lotto tickets.

    Easy game IMO

  22. It's possible you could bink a couple tournaments. You would have to run good.

    The probability, of it happening with your current Bank Roll and volume of play, is very low.

    You have play <1500 MTT/SNG on Tilt & Stars combined in two years. You need to be putting in that volume every month to have a chance. You might go broke but you will never have much of a chnce at your current level of play.

  26. I'm all for positive thinking but let's be honest there's really zero chance at the stakes you were playing and with the br you said

    how is $50k so far out of reach for someone with a $4k bankroll? There are plenty of tournies on Sunday that offer a 5 figure first place that are in his buyin range. Also giving him 6 months to achieve it, I think it's very possible.

  30. Play satalites to sunday majors like the million, warmup, 750k, 200k, ETC. With a 4k bankroll you should be able to win a bunch of sats to these events. Then just keep playing within your BR and move up.
