Of course there are other attributes to the game. Live requires more skills than online IMO even though live is an easier game. Online is math and discipline when you have HUDs providing excellent information.
Live requires even more discipline than online, math, psychology, self awareness, emotional intelligence with the latter two not being measures on an I.Q. test
Discipline I think is the most important. I have seen many decent player lose their discipline, go on tilt, and destroy their winrate.
I have met many a pro player who seemed around 115 and were somewhat successful. I say somewhat because I see them making clear mistakes which should drastically impact their winrate to the bottom end of profitable enough to barely make a living.
I know 1 player who is 125 who is very successful. But he has been playing for decades. His math skills aren't as good as mine, nor his poker psychology. If we played heads up I'd beat him because I know poker theory better. But he has far more experience @ live play than I do.
I know 2 players who are in the 130's range who are moderately successful. But their environments also makes it tough on them to make serious money and require more work into the game.
The best player I know who is slightly better than I am is a 165.
I know another who is 165 and is a little worse than I am by his own admission.
Both have put perhaps 5-15% of the time invested into the game as I have.
To be the top 1% of any subject you need roughly a 150 I.Q. (Jordan Peterson)
@ 1/2, and I know this depends on the game... We assuming mixed full and short stacks which is typical @ 1/2.
Ok = ~$5-$10 per hour
Good = ~$10-$15 per hour
Excellent = $15-$25 per hour
Master = $25+ per hour
Ok = ~$5-$20 per hour
Good = $20-$35 per hour
Excellent = $35-$50 per hour
Master = $50+ per hour
I know one player who makes $40 an hour @ 1/2 and another who makes $115 @ 2/5 per hour. Both are excellent players of different styles.
I am 132 myself and study poker more than anyone I have met by far. I perform as a master online at Ignition averaging out over a large sample. I perform only good live but that's due to a massive negative variance in large pots for the last 4 years and too few hours between all 4 years. My skill has dramatically increased the last 4 years due to specific data accumulation and private work with combinatorics. I teach 3 friends currently on how to improve their game.
