Default hours put in each week

Just wondering why so many of the good players on here who are making 20-100 dollars an hour only work around 20-30 hours a week.
Thanks

Because it's a good balance between income and having a life.

If you play poker and don't have a life, you'll end up in a sanitarium.

People play poker so they can have free time and do what they want.

My only concern, and I'd have to check with my accountant, is that it would put me into a higher tax bracket.

I read that article in the 2+2 magazine about taxes. Should I really be paranoid about that and start putting money aside for it?
