A lot of people do not go no where near gambling, simply because they try to steer clear from becoming addicted, but personally I think its a great money earner.
I personally began playing when I was about 20 years old and to be truthful I lost quite a bit of my cash when I first began, I believe it was because I was a bit naïve and thought I was the best player. But I decided to do something about it so I read manuals both online and offline, I was getting great at the game.
My speciality was poker, I was basically the king of bluff and no one could defeat me, I regularly went to my casino and was earning a bit of extra pocket cash. It was not until I got my first internet connection that I got obsessed with something called online poker, but it was a lot different online and a whole new ball game, things were a lot harder because you could not see who you were playing against and the whole purpose of poker is being able to tell when someone is bluffing. I again lost a bit of money to begin with but then I started to master the art.
There was a much wider audience online and the jackpots that I was winning were huge amounts because a lot more people were depositing big amounts of money and I started to make a good fortune so I was a lot happier then I had been for a long time. Within a few years I had purchased a luxury home, a small boat and a couple of nice vehicles, I still play online poker twice a week and am raking in a good amount, although I do sometimes have my bad days I would never change my life for a second and for every that moans about gambling, they should first try it to see what an exciting game it can be.
