Question by scoot: Should I start playing poker for a living?
I have been a very successful on-line poker player for the last three years. I play Multi Table Tournaments exclusively on Full Tilt and it has been very profitable. I currently HATE my “real full time job”, however, the security of a “real job” has kept me there. I’d like to hear some stories from people with the background and experience please.

It may seem like a good idea at first but realistically..in the long-term the stress and worries will be too much to carry.
Despite how successful you are at poker now, the income will never be as steady as a real full time job.
My advice is to KEEP the security of your job as boring as it may be..until you come across something that is more enjoyable/profitable
all the while keeping online poker as a “side business” or hobby.
