    Professional Poker Player - tournament poker online.

    During my time as a poker player I have developed many personal skills including decision making, concentration, organization, planing, patience and self discipline. I have also discovered how much I enjoyed solving problems and decided to pursue a career in software engineering.

    Contrary to what many believe, playing poker professionally is not about gambling but well educated and astute investing decisions made over and over again. In fact, poker and stock market investing are very similar, when practiced properly by serious people, both activities are done with the objective of making money. There are elements of luck in both fields in the short-term, but in the long-term the skill of the player/investor should be expected to result in financial gain.
