Good luck on your quest. I think it's better to give it a shot, as long as you have done the research and are not making a rash decision based upon emotion. It sounds like you have definitely put in the time. Heck, the worst thing that happens is it doesn't work out, and you get another "real" job. Better to giveit a shot than to always wonder "what if>" I wish you luck. Keep us informed as to your progress, hopeuflly we'll see you on the tube someday.

Good luck! I'm about 2 weeks behind you I think. I don't have any wife or kids, just a bunch of debt. Can't quite pull the trigger yet, but very close.

I know too well what it's like to be on that fence. I was on it for a long time. I don't know what your situation is, but I've wished many times that I had been single when I discovered poker. I don't regret my marriage or anything like that, but my decision would've been much easier if I were single. But you, you are still there, and without knowing anything else about your life, why not.

Small world. I live in New Haven and work in Milford, but not in IT, so I'll keep my job.

Good luck with everything, and don't let me run into you at Foxwoods!

Before I learned to play poker, I use to go up there and dump money on BlackJack all the time. I haven't been up there except for few occasions when I've had guests to entertain in the past 3 years, but I think once I leave my job and do have some extra time, I will start getting into live poker and some tournaments for fun.

Wish you the best I am also not far behind, I am supposed to be laid off in the next week or two and will have the state subsidizing my early months, I am married and my kids are are almost grown and I worked to long at a job I never liked to make sure I had benefits and things I needed for a family but now my wife is behind me and we will see how it goes. So good luck and post on your progress now and then. Also my wife and I have discussed moving down south to a better cost of living situation if things go well, tough here in the northeast especially in the winter.

Good luck. You got big cahoonas for leaving your IT job. (I got little cahoonas can't leave my IT job and I'm single).

It sounds like you are buying insurance in NY. How much did they quote you? How long did you work at your job?

Anyway I wish you the best of luck.
