J1T - Can I make a living playing Poker?


My First Post and Looking for your help.

Well here I am

I wanted to give playing poker for a living a try.  Am I good? Not Yet.  I could certainly use some help from anyone willing to offer it.  Is it a streatch? Yes, but what the hell my hearts not into signing with a corporation again so.... here I am.  So I will try hard see if the dream is possible.

Currently I'm reading:
1) The Theory of Poker - David Sklansky
2) Kill Everyone - Lee Nelson, Tysen Streib, and Steven Heston
3) Taking the PSO Courses

I've won a few sit & goes but I like the cash games although I'm getting clobbered.  I swear the cards are being delt against me.  But I also know that means I don't know what the hell I'm doing yet.

Looking for groups to play with. I would certainly be interested in talking to any mentors out there that would like to mold clay into a sculpture.  If nothing else advise on good material to read.

Cheers all and good luck.
