Smile I quit my job and now I'm making my living playing online poker

When the lock downs begun I was working in sales. You know the deal - minimal wage plus a commission, but since there were so few customers I was not making enough money to cover my basic expenses.

My anxiety went trough the roof and at one point I thought, I would have to move back with my parents. Not that it's the worst thing on the planet, but if you are a guy in his 20s living mommy and daddy is not a dream situation.

At that time all I did is complained about my situation, which didn't exactly make me very popular with other people.

However a friend took pity on me and invited me to join a team play poker chat room he was in. I told him that I don't even know how to play poker, but he convinced me to give it a try. Team play is when couple of people sit on a table and share with each other what cards they have, and they play as a team against the rest of the players on the table.

I was doing pretty well, but the summer came and many of the restrictions got lifted and my regular job picked up. Standing on your feet 8 hours a day trying to sell a person something that they probably don't want and most likely don't need is a joyless existence. On top of that I started making more money from the poker than my ""real"" job. So last October I decided to quit and just play poker.

To be honest I've never been more happy in my life. I feel free and in control for the first time. I just wanted to vent a little and share my experience(maybe brag a little).

If you have any questions leave them in the comments bellow and I will try to answer to the best of my abilities.

Ok, maybe I should have gone in more detail. You are in a chat room with dozens of people, you get in contact with 2 other people from the chat and you sit on a poker table together. You share what cards you have and which hand is the best and how to play it. Between the 3 of you, you have a knowledge of 11 cards (2 cards in each hand plus the 5 cards on the table) and the rest of the players only know 7(their 2 plus the 5 on the table).
This gives you the ability to strategize. For example Player A has 2 spades in his hand and there are 2 spades on the table he is 1 spade away from flush. If his partners dont have any spades in their hands this means that there is a very high percent chance that he will get the flush because there are more spades left in the deck. The opposite is also valid, if his partners each have a spade then there are less spades in the deck, and he will most likely not get a flush. This logic applies to every hand.
Also because you have 3 hands you get to chose who's hand is the best and play with it while the others fold.

This is kinda fraud, but if it works for you... be careful, casinos look out for such guys.

Personally I wouldn't feel guilty cheating a casino a bit. I don't gamble though.

I also thought this was a lead in for a spam post. Surprised this thread is still here.

technically your not cheating the casino, your cheating the poor guy that has the table stacked against him. The house takes a % cut of the pot regardless who wins or loses. But this is a bs post anyway so technically in theory

It is using their platform for a fraud. So not that easy as it seems.
