Greetings from an average poker player,
My job is boring, I pay the bills. Nothing to brag about life though. But I've never dreamed about becoming a pro. I've played in Amsterdam, Edinburgh and London so far. Poker is my passion, but I'm not obsessed with it. These two concepts (passion and obsession) should not be confused.
I particularly love playing poker, the lifestyle, the money that the pros earn, don't delude me at all, not least because I'm a guy who plays recreationally though, based on trying to do my best in tournaments and so leave things a little more fun for me.
