Texas Holdem Poker – Playing For a Living – What Are The Pros And Cons?

admin 0

In this article I will focus on the pros and cons of playing poker for a living.

Are you really ready to play poker for a living?

Let’s think about this for a minute.

You are going to PLAY a game for your complete income. It is certainly doable, but you have to really look at your past play.

How did you handle when you had a big win? Did you immediately jump up in stakes? Did you invest your winnings? What did you do?

More importantly, how did you deal with a BIG LOSS. When you did not cash in 10 straight tournaments how did you handle yourself? Did you move up or down in stakes?

If you can’t be honest with how you have really reacted to up and down swings then you are not ready to be a professional poker player.

If you are going to play poker online professionally you will enjoy a great amount of benefits that you could not enjoy by playing in a live mega888 apk including:

-Nobody at the table trying to intimidate you

-No waiting for hours for a table. There is ALWAYS an open game ready

-No gas, car, any expenses involved while traveling

-Don’t have to tip the dealer (this is huge!!)

-The house take (rake) is much lower (another big one)

So if you are really going to try to make a living in poker then you should definitely considering getting your career started in online poker.

I recommend that you read many guides, book, and even hire a coach or mentor before you decide to make the change.

I personally made the change 2 years ago after hitting a multi-table tournament cash and haven’t looked back since. I am in the top 20% of yearly income for my city and I live comfortably.

I could go on a 6+ month losing streak and it wouldn’t effect my life style one bit.

I am also not married, so that helps too 🙂

Until next time, Good luck at the tables!
