Just Started playing Poker, Need Help

This is my first post here, so hi everyone,
I learned to play poker(texas hold'em) 2 days ago. I liked it very much but I wonder if I can be a poker player(gain income just from poker). Of course I'll have to study and play at least a year but I liked it very much. My best hobbies are chess and starcraft. My chess rating changes between 2000-2100 and I am one of the best five starcraft players in my country, which means I like strategy games and spend time playing them very much. I live in Turkey. Are there people who make a living out of only playing online? I am studying chemistry at university right now but I don't like it(actually I hate it ). Can anyone give me suggestions about where to start learning? I started playing on (not with real money of course). I would appreciate any online strategy guides.
By the way the site I mentioned says it can't be used for profesional play, does this mean if you win too much money they don't give that much real money? Someone please explain this.
Thanks very much,
