Over the last three years since deciding to play poker full time I have been getting progressively more involved with the poker world and everything that comes with it. Some of that is by choice, and some is not. For a lot of players, poker can take over completely. It’s an extremely competitive game, if you want to get to the top you have to work hard, study a lot and play a tonne of hands. Sure you can treat it like a 9-5 job, just put in the amount of hours you want to and you’re done for the day, but when there are players who are thinking about the game 24/7, how far can you expect to go if you’re clocking out at 5 every day? The problem with this is that there’s pretty much no limit to how much we can let it take over. The more time we spend immersed in the game the more it becomes a way of life.
