    For a long period of time when I was starting out, I didn't think it could be done. (That's having a positive stream of income from blackjack.) When you learn all the things that are needed for that to happen and they fall into place, it can be done except for one little problem. The casinos are NOT going to let you take money from them consistently. If they do, then either they don't know you, or they are being nice to you, or are grossly indifferent or really incompetent.

    You really don’t know if it could be done till your local casinos close you out. In my experience, depending on how aggressive and how often you play, it takes about 1-5 years. It’s only when you start traveling that you find whether you can do it or not. When you start having to pay for travel, motels, car rentals, airline tickets, greasy food, no home to return to each night and more, it’s tough to play the $5 minimum, $100 max bet game and make any money and the move to $25 tables, higher bets, greater swings, greater heat might make most to reconsider.

    Like pro players and entertainers, for 99%, it’s a short career.

    I'm rarely on Zee side, however, this last post is unquestionably right.
