Take your game to the next level:

The unfortunate truth of poker is that in today’s game you are playing against tougher competition at the stakes where the money matters.
Poker training and the general understanding of poker strategy has evolved to the point where, unless you have access to a casino with easy live games or a soft home game, you are having to train and study more to win.

It really depends on what level of side-income will satisfy you and where you already are in your poker strategy journey.

If you are looking to make a small amount of money while doing something you enjoy you are going to have an easier time achieving your goal compared to someone who wants to make 50% of their salary playing poker twice a week.

It’s still not going to be easy but by training your poker skills (especially the soft skills like game selection) could lead you towards that goal.

If you’re building huge chip stacks already but still looking for how to improve at Pot Limit Omaha, No Limit Hold ‘em, or big bet poker in general, Phil Galfond is here to teach you how to think like a professional poker player.

Are you a new poker player or a poker beginner? Do you just need the best Texas Hold’em poker strategy and best Pot Limit Omaha poker tips, or do you have a high stakes poker related question you’d like a poker professional’s advice on?

Leave a comment and your question might end up in the next one of Phil’s quick poker tips videos!

Playing Poker Part-Time as a Second Source of Income?

8 thoughts on “Playing Poker Part-Time as a Second Source of Income?

  1. I believe poker is an ideal side hustle because, if you have access to live casino games, you can choose to only play during peak times when all the recs play and it will boost your win rate.

  2. Im choosing poker as a side hustle. However It was my full time income for about 10 years… now I have a job and play poker part time profitably. My exp goes a long way and I do still study.

  3. I made a couple million in business because I realized in 2012 that there was much more probability-weighted upside in business or real estate vs poker. ROI on your time, I think poker is a fairly losing endeavor in the long run for 99%. Better to invest in an engineering degree where $1 million savings over 15 years is almost guaranteed.

  4. I recon even 15 years ago, online poker wasn't a great way to make money for amateurs. I found it so much more difficult than live games. Now I kinda crave playing online but its not available here 🙁

  5. If you use same amount of time and effort of studying poker on anything else, you'll probably be much more financially stable. If your priority of playing poker is just about money, you will feel miserable. The top reason for playing poker should be enthusiasm.

  6. Encouraging anyone to gamble as a source of income is honestly one of the worst things I’ve ever heard you say. I understand you’re trying to “reply to a question” but your answer should’ve been, point blank, “Gambling is not a way to make money. It’s what you do once you have money you don’t care about.”
