I live in sacramento, ca. I make 56k a year as a electrician at Post Office. I felt that i was born to be a known personality. Through my hard work, deciation, lots and lots of hours of studying, making notes and gaining 100 of hours of experience on poker table, i will become on of the best poker players who ever came around. But i forgot, its game of odds. but on best day, those odds are only for books. If odds held up every time or most of the time. i would not be 35k in hole. Some famous personality once said," In texas holdem, 80% must lose, so few could win." Well i guess that applies to tournament play. But in cash game, to make living you have to dedicate anywhere 10-14 hours a day to make good living, but on one play when odds dont stand up, you end up losing what you have earned that day and you are back to square one. 14 hours of life wasted. No time for Wife, Kids, Malls, Shopping, Friends, Numberous other things because you have to make living playing poker. But why put all this hardwork, dedication and studying when there is only 50% gurantee, that your hard work would pay off. Cash games could really suck your pesonal life into a black hole. I have decided to find a second job to make my loses back and quit gambling Poker. I am willing to punish my self by working two jobs to make my loses back. Anyways i hope this site is a positive step in right direction. THANK YOU for listening.
