So I'm about to apply for a position as a prop player for a local casino. The casino is about 10 minutes away and I plan on it being my main source of income until I finish my nursing classes. I will probably be playing mostly 3/6, 4/8 limit holdem, and 4/8 limit omaha hi-lo, with some 2/5 nl holdem. I have been told by a recent hire that the pay is 9$ + 15$, so basically 24$/hr while you're playing and probably 9$/hr while you're just waiting around.
I'm currently a part time personal trainer that get's paid 18$/hr + commission but kinda getting burnt out/tired of the job even though I love fitness and gains.
Would you guys go for the job? Do you see yourself being a slight winner, break even, or slight losing playing in a limit format? Is it reasonable to expect making 2bb's/hr on top of the hourly so basically 32$ ish per hour?

are delusional and talk smack like they're the god of poker then they lose a pot and get all butt hurt, hammer fisting the table and criticizing other people's plays. Semi tilted after tonight's session playing significantly under my A-game and donking about 600$ to this idiot, and 400$ to other folks.
I hate people who can't take even the small losses at the table and cause an uncomfortable tension. Why does this fishy type of player have to be such pain in the asses at live games? It surprises how many of these people who probably have at least upper middle class income can act like such babies.

Up about 15k since feb but month of may is being really shitty, currently around -2900 for the month and half of it is due to shitty play. I need to add more structure and discipline to this craft of grinding live poker, I'm playing for way too long, making poor decisions, playing way too wide when I'm card dead or slightly tilted and I'm not taking good care of myself health wise.
Time to turn this thing around...
Plan for summer, while working part time (25ish hrs per week);
play 40 hrs of live poker per week minimum,
end sessions earlier when starting to get tired, tilted, table becomes poor
get back to working out 4-5 times per week
cook 90% of food at home minimum
improve on relationship with gf, (spend more time together, etc.
long term live poker goal is still trying to average 30$ hr for at least a year sample
