Turning Online Poker Into a Business

You might have a thought or question playing in your mind which you would need to get answers with. So, you’re great in playing online poker games and have mastered the craft of the game itself. Add to that your use of the online poker odds calculator that allows you to win more at a bigger percentage, say around 80% of the time. You might be asking yourself, would it be possible to turn online poker playing into a business? Can I totally rely on it as my immediate source of income?

I have this personal experience to share with you, when during my early ages of 22, as I was teaching in a particular college, one of my students invited me over to join them as they had fun in the casino. I told myself, “I’ve never been inside a casino and I wanted to experience how it feels to be in one.” I joined the group where upon entering, they started to split up and went to the different games that were present there. One student went to the baccarat table and started playing. Another student went into the blackjack table where he started to do side bets until he got the opportunity to sit as one of the major players. The third one went to the poker table where he was immediately able to sit and play. I was going around, and observing when I encountered this guy who had a lot of chips with him. Counting the denomination of the chips, these were not plain 10’s, 20’s, or even 30’s. He was holding with him 100’s, and even 1000’s worth of chips. I greeted him and told him, “You’ve got a huge amount there sir!” He answered, “You know what, this is what I do for a living.” Amazed at his response, I never thought that playing in the casino could be a source of income for a person.

What am I pointing out? It is plain and simple. If you’re good at playing online poker and have mastered the art of it, you can always make it into a business. Remember that the advantage of online poker is that you can play it at the convenience of your home. You don’t need to physically travel, no need to take a bath, spend for transportation but simply sit back and relax in front of your monitor screen. You simply have to login and that’s it. Moreover, you don’t get intimidated by the other players who are playing along with you; no need to pay tips to the dealer in case you win; the rate is much lower. In short, you get your money and have it for yourself. Of course, you just have to remember that your online poker game is hooked up or linked either to your bank account, credit/debit card, or your PayPal account. Money simply flows into your pocket without any delay. Well, here are some things you might also want to take note of:

Give the game 100% of your attention and focus

Always read and practice the game as often as possible

Play with the amount of money you can afford to lose

Play in rooms that have only a few fish playing on the table.

So, if you’re thinking of playing online poker and making it your main source of income, I would simply say go for it! There’s nothing to lose for as long as you know that you have that 80% probability of winning at every round or hand.
