This does not come as any surprise to me as I am making re-deposits to my online sites each year when I finally run my balance with a site down to $10.00 or less.
There is only one site in the last three years that I actually have more than what I started with and I don’t play there very often.
Why am I saying this?
I have always had aspirations that I would one day be a great poker player and would make a living at it.
Based on my earnings so far, I could be losing that weight I have been meaning to take off, because I would not be earning enough to buy food with.
Where do I go from here?
I love the game, I love the action, I love the books, videos and poker shows.
So I will probably end up being a recreational poker player. I will probably play a few tournaments a year and I will probably continue to blog about my successes and my failures. Now this could change if I have three or more winning years in a row. But I am not holding my breath until I do. I am blue enough already.
I will still read new books about poker and will share my thoughts about them.
One is a book of poker fiction, titled “Under the Gun” and the other is a poker book titled “Killer Poker Online 2 – Advanced Strategies for Crushing the Internet Game”. Both of these books look like a great read and I can’t wait to get started reading them.
Do you know what type of a poker player you are? Are you a recreational player? An amateur? Semi Pro? Pro?
Does knowing what type of player help your expectations when you play?
