Sure it's good for people to wish him luck rather than beat him down though and say how much of a bad idea or how he shouldn't be attempting it.
If he has the money, even if it means him withdrawing his retirement funds then it's his choice and I think GL is the only thing we can do.
Someone playing exclusively LIVE like he is have to ALWAYS take these steps, so if no one did this there would be no pros out there apart from online.
I'm interested in to knowing why you think it's a bad idea? If he's a bad player then yeah of course it's a bad idea but again, we don't know how good or bad he is and I'm sure he wouldn't be just doing it as a newcomer and this would be plain stupid. I can't imagine him wanting to gamble 15k if he didn't have an edge either, who knows though.
I'm sure if some of the top players at CC decided to go pro(maybe someone like you even), you/we would wish them all the good luck in the world, purely based on knowing what they are capable off. We, don't know what he is capable of and might be the next best thing since sliced bread!
