Default Re: How Hard Is It To Make 1000 per month playing online poker?

It's not at all easy.

Online games are much harder than they were 5 years ago, and even at low stakes you'll find a lot of pretty solid players.

As for the type of person, I think being calm and patient are the two most important aspects, since you will get periods where you get absolutely nothing for hours on end, and other times where you get one sick beat after another, and you have to be able to stay focused at all times.

Anyway, if you want to give it a try, I'd recommend starting out with some low stakes sit n go games, since they'll allow you to experience most of the aspects of poker (deep stacks, bubble play, heads up etc.), so you can see what you're good at, and where to improve.
