It is believed that poker is a game of intellectuals. Was wondering --what are some jobs that predominate among poker players?What is your educational background famous poker players? And who are YOU by profession?

among professionals there are players with higher education and without.Among non-professionals, too.Poker combines all. I like the doctor. AND YOU ?

You don't have to be a math teacher to play poker,doctor, etc ....just play a lot of hands and you'll learn how to play it

Hello, I am businessman and I think rather that many professional duties of my office enfluenciam in my game. As one psychologist, one mathematician, a chess player, among other offices that directly or indirectly help to play good poker.

I graduated in 2013 and trained as an engineer in computer systems.This is a fairly broad discipline that includes video surveillance systems, databases etc.There were many kinds of mathematics at the university, which helps me to this day ,including poker.

I have had various jobs in the past. I mainly worked in the Transport/ Distribution area. I was a Distribution Manager at the Royal Mail for nearly 10 years and then moved on to be a Business Analyst at the Prudential Uk for about 5 years before going back to transport. My role as an analyst used a lot of mathematics and computer work. Finished schooling in the 80's with a few O'levels, (British qualifications of the past). I did not go to university, because in my day you had to be intelligent to go, not just use it as a place to be for 3/4/5 years..............(I mean I know of a girl who lives me who studied Knitwork for 3 years). Come on my grandmother taught me to knit in about 3 mins??

Math is a good background to have when playing poker, but as has been said - you can learn the math in poker quite easily with practice. Enough rambling from me...............gl all :D:D:D

I'm a Medicine student. Poker is more linked on dedication and patience than a natural gift.
