10 Life Lessons I Learned From Playing Poker

I started playing poker around a decade ago in college.

All I knew back then is that I wanted to be rich one day and getting a normal job wasn’t the path. Unfortunately there’s not plenty of opportunities for a 19 year old to get rich, and I didn’t know about internet marketing. The poker boom was in full effect and it seemed as if every Asian guy I knew was trying out poker. I figured I’d give it a shot since I’m good at math.

It’s easy to get attracted to the poker lifestyle. You could play at home and make tons of money. I watched all the TV shows and it seemed every poker pro was living a baller lifestyle. There was also this level of manly respect you can earn if you’re good at poker. There’s nothing like the high you can get when you’re on a winning streak.
