You're not funny and your argument is terrible. There are much better ways to approach this, rather than arguing "hobbies aren't supposed to be about money".
If you have a hobby and it has the potential to make money/ gain you popularity, why wouldn't you pursue it? Casuals are weak-minded.
Partly, yes. I'm not disagreeing as such. It's just that somebody with a full-time job, maybe an especially demanding one, may not have the time or inclination to advance to that stage. All I'm saying is for some it HAS to remain a hobby. A guy who's new to the game, and only gets maybe a few hours a week to play, isn't going to win anything at all at tournaments and isn't going to expect to.
I am a counter example to this. I go to school full-time and my week is spent programming, while I work 20+ hours a week on the weekends. However, I have managed to do well at 3 tournaments thus far, with Chicago in a week. When school starts again next week, I will only be playing in local and online tournaments, without much practice again.
