I've had stretches where I would play a couple hours a day and it just sucks. There would be weeks where I would win nearly every game or at least place in the money, but then there would be weeks where I would get a whole bunch of shit dumped on me. If you can truly stick to disposable income that it wouldn't be awful, but be very careful. If you hit a big enough losing streak, any income can become disposable income.
As far as game types, I would recommend Texas Hold em.
