[Challenge] Becoming A Poker Pro: The Transition

So I decided to have a challenge/goal for my poker journey. I’ve been thinking a lot about though I am still not sure if I’ll pursue these career. I really want to give it a try and see if I’ll be successful at this since I’ve never been really successful in playing poker in the long run.

You can follow my forum post at 2+2 regarding my challenge, this is not a short term goal but this is a goal until 2013. I might be successful, I might fail, but I’ll give this a whole year a try.

I’ll be focusing full-time in poker starting 2013 after my last freelance project ends. I might take some project for the local campaign in the Philippines but after it will be my last project.

I don’t have life saving, I get my income in my web hosting business that help me get through the month but I would be honest it is not enough. That’s why I am hoping poker can give me a chance to be successful in life.
