I am on disability and face astronomical employment barriers, so I've
thought of making a career of poker. Not only does it actually give me a

clear me to look for work. My situation is different from that of most
people who decide to turn pro in that I don't have to worry about saving
year's worth of living expenses in advance and don't have to be majorly
concerned about a bankroll. As long as I remain on disability my rent is
paid and my bankroll is renewable. Before you start screaming at me,
note that the disability people and my doctors are fully aware of my
activities and don't have a problem with me keeping busy (which is how
see it). I invest between $50 and $100 in poker each month because that's
all I can afford while remaining financially responsible. Instead of
out for a coffee or a movie once in a while I stay at my computer and
I've been doing it for a few months and so far, my deposit has stretched
until it lasts about two weeks. Over the last month I've been cashing out
and redepositing from time to time. Right now I'm very low in the BR but
reload with part of my credit card payment (I don't use my credit card
anything else) and am seriously considering it. (BTW, before you scream
me again, my bank and credit card company know I'm on disability and the
bank manager is extremely sympathetic. I haven't told them I'm doing
gaming but in Canada it's not illegal and I'm sure they can figure out
My biggest problem so far has been impatience. I tend to treat my br as
identical to my table stake. If I deposit $25 I go straight to the 50c/$1
table. I play upwards of 60 hours a week, usually 7-card stud but
hold 'em. (I can't stand Omaha.) I only play limit because my experience
been that it only takes one bad beat to destroy your table stake at any
game. My best balance has been $345 off a $70 deposit. My worst
was this morning, when I blew a $60 reload (off an earlier cashout) in
half an hour of bad beat after bad beat. Right now, overall, I'm down
approximately $229 since I started playing a few months ago.
