If you are thinking you might want to work from home and make a living playing online poker, it might be smart to consider another option for your career choice. The US government is busy trying their hardest to make online poker illegal and a felony in the United States. It is already a reality in a handful of US states and in Germany.
The video below is both funny and scary because it could really happen in our out of control goverment that is so determined to protect us from ourselves. Many people are able to make a nice living from poker but it looks like online poker jobs are a risky proposition. If you want to play poker as a job, you had better go to an Indian casino where the government says it is OK because they tax that revenue. As long as they get their taxes, gambling is fine with our fearless government leaders. State lotteries, for instance, are used to further drain the resourses of the poor who can’t afford to play while lining the coffers of our elected officials who crave power. That’s my take anyway.
If you are interested in playing online poker without any risk, you can always play at PurePlay where thousands compete every day for real cash prizes. It is also a good place to play to get used to the online game and they have $10,000.00 tournaments that you can get it for free! Playing poker at PurePlay is better than playing with free chips at FullTilt or PokerStars because the people are trying to win real money and at FT and PS the people are just messing around.
