Hey, I wanted to hear more educated and less trolling than I would on 2plus2.
I am planning to go pro once I finish college next year. I have thought it out a lot. Although I would be passing up on a career path in finance, I want to live the life I want. In the short term, I would definitely make more in poker. Long-term is obviously a different question. However, if I end up having to go back and start in the finance field 5 years from now, I will be content that I at least tried poker out (rather than regretting it if I didn't). I am going to play mostly live cash in the US.
I am not asking if I should specifically go pro, but rather will games be beatable for a long enough time? NLHE? PLO? Personally, I know that everyone is getting better and better at poker. However, Americans are definitely behind the curve and live poker seems to still be doing well. Also, online poker in US is always an opportunity. Furthermore, I think there are probably more American pros leaving the game versus coming in, due to the increase in hard work required and everyone preaching not to get into poker (no proof on this). What are your thoughts?
