So you think you got what it takes to become an online poker pro. If you have ever thought about becoming a professional poker player, you are not alone, according to the website AintLuck.com.

Easy, maybe....but not without a lot of work.

"When we say "can" become, in online poker that means that the possibilities are endless, but it still takes more than you would believe."

The keys to becoming an online poker pro:

Treat online poker like a business, track your poker stats and star in porns with shriveled up 80 year olds. Oh wait, you don't want to be like poker pro David Williams.

Some helpful advise on the "business" aspect of things:

Poker is a business in addition the the great game you love. If you are going to be a pro you must be able to manage your game as if it were a business. You must be able to properly manage you bankroll, money and everything else that goes along with the game. That is probably the biggest set back for most that try to do this. You can be the greatest poker player in the world, but if you are not able to manage everything properly, you do not have a chance.

Another thing is that becoming a professional poker player really takes balance. It can be very easy to play poker 24/7 if you love it enough, but that is only going to hurt you in the long run. You are talking about something that is going to run your entire life. You will be relying on poker as your full time income which is a lot of pressure. Without the balance, you are going to get overwhelmed and drained out. That is why so many players do well at first but end up going down hill a year later. Keep a balance in your life and that will not happen.
