Not at the moment, but I hope to be able to dedicate myself full time one day. Although I understand that it is very difficult and very few people can achieve it.

playing poker is not a job as it is related to gambling, you can win you can also lose you never know. you can play for fun or you can gamble for money in live games like EPT or wsop

I think that to consider poker as a job you have to give it a lot of time to study and play many hours, if you do it correctly you can receive good profits that in the long term will be a job for you.

Hello, not today, but it is what I want, to be able to work and live, what I am most passionate about, but it is a great job that has to be done, like patience, studying poker, discipline and trusting yourself.

Definitely not and I have no goal to be a professional poker player. Unless you win a very big tournament, the life of a professional poker player is not easy and you have a lot of pressure every month. Not the type of life I want.

Definitely not , It’s a hard way to make an easy living.
If someone want to consider poker as a job he need to study and play poker for a number of years before he can even THINK about going pro. It’s not just something that he can pick up and start making money at.

Sometimes I had this thought. But in order to consider poker my job, I would have to focus on making money all the time. The pleasure of the game could be lost.

Making a living from poker is not for everyone.

I always thought playing against u feels like playing against a pro.

Thanks for the clarification.

I play poker only in my free time and don't intend to become a professional poker player.

I like playing poker, it's my favorite hobby. As for changing my work, I think it's still too early, not yet.

I would starve relying on poker. So would 99.9% of poker participants.

Hi
I don't see poker as a job. For me, poker is entertainment, a hobby. But there is a nice nuance, my hobby from time to time also brings me money :)
