So many people think playing poker professionally is just ez money but have no idea what goes on beneath the surface

Re: 2k- a poker story (wtmfl;dr obv)

DGAF, I just want you to know you have done the poker world a great service by writing about the abyss. It is really good writing and haunting how accurately you capture it.

When you talk about walking out in the parking lot, and almost wanting to get the **** kicked out of you. I know exactly what you mean.

You play thousands of hours and you hit low lows and high highs but no matter how much you make no matter how many hours you put in, if you see the abyss (few really see it imo), you question everything you ever knew. That's the hardest part. Your self confidence is totally destroyed, and you are alone. And then you read/see other pros baller status and how they never lose and they take retarded spew lines and everyone says "standard ldo" and you think wtf am I doing wrong.

So thank you. For not telling us about your huge wins. For not telling us about your baller status. For not telling us how good you are. For not justifying you horrispew lines.

Thank you for telling us about the abyss.
