Hi, I had always joined friends for a game on a Saturday night but I was the one who always had to have the hand chart next to them so I knew what beat what. Then one afternoon I was watching youtube and came across poker videos of Tom Dwan, Gus Hansen, Phil Ivey, Patrick Antonius, the ones that come up time and time again and realised people were making a genuine living out of it. From that moment I was hooked and spend most of my spare time reading articles or watching videos. I have enjoyed watching the short films of Pokerstars pro's and hearing how they got into poker.
Since getting into poker I have learnt of the Moneymaker boom and the effect he has had on the industry, what an amazing story. I sometimes watch him play on stars.
I was wondering, are most people on here professional or are there lots like me, someone working full time and grinding in their spare time?
