I think he is right.
How do you think about poker? I know many of you are probably play for a living and do you think that poker makes you depressed?
Its just that i noticed how i used to play poker just for fun,but in a way, more recently it has become less fun.
And also is playing poker for a living really as bad as people say?
i don't really enjoy it.
no reason to be depressed though.
it is just a job. most people dont love their job. right now grinding is the best combo of pay, freedom etc.
but the people who say "wow i love poker. would be great to do it full time." are fairly wrong.
i just grind sngs pretty brainlessly so maybe people who play differently enjoy it more.
in summary don't enjoy it. i treat it like a job. but fairly satisfied with it right now.
