Online Poker

Anyone on the boards into a bit of poker? I never used to be until recently, have been playing tournaments, nothing huge. Ended up in the money a few times, but nothing significant (most was around 40 quid). It's insane looking into some of the $2000 buy in events online! I entered a freebuy qualifier for a £20,000 tournaments. 6000 people entered, 48 places were handed out.... After over 5 hours i finished 61st:angry:

Anyone had much success? There are some fairy tale stories out there.

A colleague packed in teaching for a year to play poker full time. He matched or exceeded his salary every month but returned to work as he craved social interaction face to face after a while.

I can imagine, the hours speant online must have been insane! Did he ever play in tournaments offline? Was most of his money made from cash games, tournaments seem to be a bit hit and miss.
