Confessions of an online poker player

Saw this on the msn and though it was interesting.

This is a guest post from an Anonymous Professional Poker Player (sexy!).
Quote:
There is an old saying, "Poker is the hardest way to make an easy living." After playing full-time poker for 4 years, I can't think of a better statement to describe it. There are obvious benefits to poker: You set your own schedule, you work when you want to work, and your performance is relatively proportional to your income. If you play on the internet, you can work from practically anywhere. Unfortunately, every one of these have a catch.
Read the rest at http://www.budgetsaresexy.com/2009/0...er-player.html
------------
J: I know this was pretty long, but I hope you enjoyed it! As a guy, the thought of playing poker full-time is incredibly fascinating (and is one of my top 5 dream jobs!). Stay tuned for round 2 when we learn the "day in the life of" a professional poker player. That's when we'll *really* see what it's like!

Re: Confessions of an online poker player

tbh i didnt think it wAS a good read. it only told me what we already know about how you can win or lose x amount in a certain amount of time and play whenver etc

also you say the 'day in the life of a poker player'

so will that article be like this

'wake up, turn pc on... play poker for 5 hours... get some food... play some more poker.. go to bed'

Because i cant imagine it being much different to that! for me personally laliberte just has it sorted. has a company, yachts, many homes, can play poker with illions and not care.... what a life
