Bridging the Gap

We’ve created this eBook to help bridge the difficult gap from being an amateur player to going pro. Not only will this guide detail winning poker strategies that the professionals use, but it will also reveal several crucial fundamental aspects you should have in place, before making the final decision to go pro.

We’ll also outline the pros and cons of playing professionally online vs. live, whether to play cash games and/or tournaments.

Bear in mind that this “going pro” gig is not a walk in the park. We cannot stress enough that making the decision to become a pro player is a serious one. However, if your desire is simply to become a better player, you can learn a lot from this book. It contains winning strategy and great poker lifestyle advice for all levels and types of players.

It's not All a Piece of Cake...

Finally, we’ll give you a good sense of what to expect from a true “poker pro lifestyle,” along with a some invaluable tips on how to succeed as a poker pro (especially when you’re not actively playing on the felts).

However, as you’ll soon find out – through this eBook and through experience – the pro poker lifestyle isn’t all fun and games. For example, the downswings that players can encounter through endless losses can quite often be extremely tough for them to cope with on an emotional level, let alone having to always play with money that simultaneously comes from their poker/life bankroll.

Playing poker can also be very taxing on your physical and mental health. Poker demands constant focus and attention through every gruelling moment of players’ long days and sessions.

That said, when you can find a balance between poker and your personal life, make good money from the game, and have fun, then it’s all definitely worth the struggles you’ll encounter along the way.

And it’s important to note that many “normal” poker players have made the successful journey to going pro, - whether it's by consistently winning tournaments, grinding away at the cash tables, or both!

Ultimately, that’s the point where we want you to get to! And after reading this guide, you should have all the tools and knowledge necessary to achieving and maintaining full-time income playing poker.
