How much does a Professional Poker Player make per Year? Average Annual Pro Card Sharp Salary Range

Poker is the king of card games. It is also steadily rising in popularity as a professional spectator sport. If you have ever wondered how much these card sharps make on an annual basis, then look no further. The average professional card player pulls in about $73,000 per year. Due to the fickle and often capricious nature of professional gambling, pro poker player salaries often change dramatically from year to year. The general salary range is between $14,300 to $250,000, but can also result in losing your shirt if you have a bad year. The top players in the world can rake in millions of dollars in a single game if they play their cards right.
