Poker is (in my opinion) the only viable side hustle when it comes to gambling. You can separate yourself from others by knowing and understanding odds, implied odds, tells, various patterns, human psychology, and the list goes on.
the luck comes in to play here and there but if it was all luck than there would be no recognizable faces at the final tables of the major tournaments.
poker has lost the national spotlight quite a bit in the last few years and what is left is card rooms full of sharks and semi pro players.
I am playing my first big tournament of the new year. I took a break from cards for 3 years or so and just started back at it a few months ago.
at the 2 casino tournaments I have played I made 22 out of 108 and 19 out of 88 both buy ins were 100bucks
the tournament I am playing today is a charity game for a local school. I am feeling good today and ready for some action
