Default For The Pro\'s

Just curious, I know we have a lot of great minds here. Great minds don't always mean doing well in school though.

What would you be doing for a living if you weren't playing poker professionally?

I can honestly say I have no idea. I'd probably be trying to open a business online or be in university, or both.

So you never went to college? How old are you and how old were you when you decided to play poker for a living?

I was in sales (commercial laundry) before I went "pro". Before that I owned a bunch of small businesses - laundromat, tanning salon, diaper service, aerobic studio, martial art school.

I would work on my family's business. We own industries that produce a series of plastic and packaging products such as aluminium cans, artificial fibers and plastic bottles.

I was at university studying law and IT, now I'm living in China playing Poker, but I'm also studying Chinese fulltime, I think i'd probably still have travelled, just would have had to sweat my ass back home to save before hand doing [censored] labouring jobs whilst being a student. Then probably work as a teacher over here.

I have no idea. Right now I am enjoying being a pro and have no plans of quiting, but I am living in a country where I do not speak the language etc., so some adjustments would have to be made [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img].

I am very good at selling, so I assume I would take a job in sales somewhere. I worked with fastevolving technology which is a curse in this situation as I will be a dinosaur if I enter the industry again (will get a lot of comments like: "that's how things were made two years ago, idiot" [img]/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]).

Some people around here know this.

I am 35...prior to poker I was a radio sports-broadcaster for various minor-league and college teams.

I was doing minor-league hockey for a team in Memphis but got fired (as did almost everyone else).

my degree is in broadcast-journalism and I could have gone back into news OR sports (radio or TV...although probably just behind the scenes if TV) if I wanted to eventually.

for 8 months I was dealing blackjack at a casino in Tunica, mississippi immediately prior to turning pro.
Blackjack actually paid a little better than small-time radio.
